Along with the more traditional papers and posters we are offering Pechakucha presentations, unpanels, and unposter sessions. All of these are detailed below, so have a look and let your creative
juices flow! Examples soon to be posted on World Conference website.

Please consider submitting your abstract early, as you will allow yourself more time to complete the full paper.

  •  Each presenter will show and speak about 10-20 slides for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds maximum), after which the audience has 1 minute and 20 seconds to take notes.
  • After all three presentations (24 minutes), a moderator will facilitate a discussion driven by thoughts and questions from the audience for 21 minutes.
  • WACE conference coordinators will arrange for presenters with similar topics to present in the same session.

the topic is important, and (3) types of questions the facilitator will pose to the audience.

Each Academic Poster author will prepare an academic poster which describes a program, new initiative, research, or any other component related to cooperative & work-integrated education.
