IMPEC 2018 Conference > Submission Format

Presentations can take one of three forms: conference papers, posters, symposia.

All proposals must be made anonymous, that is, nothing in the text or bibliography that you submit should reveal your identity (review will be anonymous and double-blind).

Each participant can have a maximum of two submissions (whether serving as primary or co-author).

  • Conference Papers

Proposals should include a 4000-5000-character (including spaces) abstract and a short bibliography. Proposals may be written in French or English.

Accepted conference papers can be presented using a slide show (translated into English if the oral is in French). 20 minutes will be allocated for each presentation with an additional 10 minutes for questions.

  • Posters

Proposals should include a 4000-5000-character (including spaces) abstract and a short bibliography.

Posters will be formatted as follows: A0 size, portrait-style orientation, text in French or English. Each participant will have 3-5 minutes (depending on the number of accepted poster presentations) to present his or her poster aloud (in French or English) during a session that will be indicated in the conference program.

An honorary prize will be awarded to the best poster.

  • Symposia

Proposals for symposia should include a 10,000-12,000-character (including spaces) abstract along with a short bibliography. The summary of the symposium should include: a) issues tied to the chosen theme, b) abstracts of the individual papers (so 3 to 5 in abstracts, without author's names1 because the evaluations must be anonymous).

Each symposium will consist of 3-5 conference papers under the direction of a symposium organizer and will be last for 1.5-2.5 hours. 

The author's names concerned in each presentation must be indicated in the field "Authors" provided for this purpose.


French and English will be the primary languages of the conference.
