Submission Deadlines and Details
The PESA 2018 Organising Committee welcomes abstract submission(s) referring to the Conference theme in the first instance, or other appropriate topics with a focus on educational philosophy and theory. Symposia are also welcomed.

Types of Submissions
Submissions may be in the form of a presentation, refereed paper, or a symposium. All abstracts will be reviewed by the Conference Organising Committee. The Committee will allocate abstracts to the program taking into account the quality of each abstract, the balance of the program and the relevance of the paper relating to the Conference theme.

Submission Formats
  • Presentation (of work in progress, non-refereed) – requires an abstract and oral presentation of 20 – 25 minutes + 5 minutes questions and audience discussion. A presentation will be a work in progress and may use PowerPoint onsite at the Conference. 
  • Refereed Paper – requires an abstract and oral presentation of 20 – 25 minutes + 5 minutes questions and audience discussion. Accepted papers will be published on the Conference website. 
  • Symposium – a set of 3 to 4 papers or a panel discussion on a specific topic. Each paper requires an abstract and oral presentation of 25 – 30 minutes including questions. A symposium provides an opportunity to examine specific issues or topics from a variety of perspectives, maybe presenting alternative solutions, interpretations, or contrasting points of view on the topic. A symposium may use a panel discussion format on a specific topic. It may be an interactive session where a large portion of the time is devoted to discussion among the presenters and discussants, and/or questions and discussion among all those present.
