Proposals from those who would like to facilitate a panel discussion are welcomed. The proposals may address any of the topics falling within the scope of the conference themes. Panel Discussions provide an opportunity for public discussion amongst a selected group of panellists. Central to the success of a panel discussion is the choice of a good topic as the focus for discussion and panellists who bring differing perspectives and are confident in making clear arguments in a live situation. Panels should comprise of three to five scholars who present their arguments; a discussant offers critical comment on the arguments made and the discussion is opened up to the participating audience.
The proposal must include:
Panel Chair(s) (if necessary)
Speakers Name, Affiliation and Email
Objective and motivation
The WCST-2017 will set aside space for those who wish to pursue discussion of a particular topic or issue. Interested individuals should submit a proposal not more than 400 words, on or before May 15, 2017. In addition, the proposal should indicate the duration of the panel discussion (preferred duration is 90 minutes).
All accepted Panel Discussion proposals will be published in the Conference Proceedings. If you are interested in organising Panel Discussion for the WCST-2017, please email your proposal to the email@example.com. Submissions should be in MS Word format.
