We cordially invite you to submit your abstract of 500 words for an individual presentation, session or demonstration in one of the following subcategories. The following button takes you to our submit page:

Unfortunately, the deadline for submission of abstracts is over!

You will receive a notification of acceptance in early March, 2018.

Individual presentations

Paper presentation

A traditional paper presentation session, with 15 minutes for each presentation, 10 minutes for a discussant, and 20 minutes for discussion.

Round table paper

Traditional round table with 20 minutes per presentation, including questions

Poster presentation

Posters will hang on the walls of the coffee break area throughout the conference. Presentations will be held during designated coffee and lunch breaks.

Sessions

Symposium session

Traditional symposium, with the same set-up as the paper presentation sessions, except that the symposium has one theme, and presenters are invited and selected by the symposium organizer.

Panel session

Session meant to explore an issue in depth by panelists and audience together. One possible set-up is that each panel member has 5 minutes to present their view on a specific theme, 20 minutes for discussion among panel members, and 40 minutes for discussion with the audience.

Research design forum

This is to be understood as a “doctoral symposium light”, in which researchers beforehand send in questions they have with respect to the design of their study. In one session, one study is treated in depth, and discussed by three experts. Contributions will most likely be submitted by doctoral students, but contributions by other researchers are also welcome.

Demonstrations

How-to session

Session in which an expert explains one "how-to" topic in detail. E.g., “how to publish mixed methods research,” “how to write mixed methods conclusions,” “how to perform a transformative study.”

Research tool demonstration

A specific computer or other tool is demonstrated in depth. Whereas in the how-to session, the aim is central, here the possibilities of the tool are central. The research tool demonstration has to be distinguished from the software demonstrations in the exhibition area. Although a research tool may involve existing software, its intention is not to advertise the software, but rather to demonstrate a specific use of the software, related to mixed methods. Examples include demonstration of a specific type of visualization; a tool for social network analysis; concept mapping in mixed methods; a specific type of joint display.
