Birds-of-a-feather Workshops:

Individual workshops can be two hours, half day, or full day in length. Although the format of the workshops will be determined by their organisers, all organisers will be strongly encouraged to allocate significant time to interactive sessions (discussions, panels, question and answer sessions, group problem-solving, brainstorming, etc.) that cannot normally be accommodated within a larger conference programme.

Proposals for workshops should not exceed THREE pages in length and should contain the following information:

1. A description of the workshop topic. Identify the specific issues on which the workshop will focus.

2. A brief discussion of why the topic is of particular interest to the GEC community at this time.

(For example, workshops have often included a combination of the following: panel discussion, question and answer sessions, hands-on demonstrations, small group problem solving sessions, brainstorming sessions, short paper presentations, poster sessions, general discussion).
4. The names and full contact information (e-mail and postal addresses, fax, and telephone numbers) of the workshop organiser(s) and brief descriptions of their relevant expertise.
5. A brief description of the preferred length (2hr, half day, or full day).
6. An indicative list of potential attendees.
