Guidelines for Stream Convenors

Stream convenors are integral to the quality of the academic programme and the life of the conference.  There is a subsided registration fee  for convenors but in return  there  are important responsibilities that need to be carried out within the time lines.

There can be up to three convenors for any stream. Stream calls are due by 10 February, 2017. Please submit to:

Convenors are expected to:

  • Develop stream calls (about one A4 page) This  gives an outline or the topic  area and suggested specific questions and guidelines for paper  or practitioner‘s submissions.

  • Give written developmental  feedback to all submitters (those accepted and any  rejected) prior to the conference. We suggest  anonymous reviews of the submissions if possible.
  • At least 3 papers constitute a stream. Small streams will be amalgamated by the conference organizers of  the academic programme.
  • Create a programme of their stream  presentations  grouped by common topic. They will submit this by 30 May, 2017 to: for compilation into the conference programme.
  • Provide active facilitation of the stream - by giving continuity and encouraging discussion linking the presentations.
