DNC3-ALED includes three formats:

  1. Individual paper presentations (20 minutes presentation plus 10 minutes discussion)
  2. Panel sessions (usually 60 - 90 minutes on one theme). We also welcome suggestions for roundtables, workshops or more unconventional panel presentations. Please specify your panel in the 'comment' field of your registration.
  3. An ad-hoc “unconference” will be organized on one afternoon. The sessions are not planned in advance. Instead, all participants will have the opportunity to put sessions on the agenda during the congress itself. Participants may suggest topics, methods, theories, questions, problems, etc. No preparation necessary.
