Aim of the Workshops

The overall aim of the workshops is to highlight topics not only explicitly covered in the main conference sessions but still related to the conference theme, and to complement the tracks by providing more interactive approaches to engage the participants. At the same time, workshops aim to provide an interesting discussion of novel ideas, insightful practical and theoretical discussions, and networking with international experts, researchers, and practitioners, among others. As such, the organizer(s) of the workshop must include activities that foster the participation of the attendees; the session is not meant to be sit-and-listen, but rather interactive.


The workshop proposal should follow the provided template, and should not exceed two pages. The proposal hence should include the proper background/context the workshop is situated. This also includes an argumentation toward the topic-wise fit of the proposed workshop and the iDSC conference. In addition, a clearly formulated aim/outcomes of the workshop, as well as a detailed methodology, how the aim should be reached, with a specific focus on lively and engaging interaction are must criteria.
