Prepare your abstract

Deadline for abstracts is 31 January 2022.

Choose between the following presentation formats:

  • Paper
  • Poster
  • Workshop
  • Symposium

A paper will be scheduled for 30 minutes presentation+discussion, as part of a 1,5 hours paper session. Posters will be posted and available during the conference, and presented during a scheduled poster session. A workshop is a more interactive session of 1,5 hours, where the participants are involved. A symposium is typically a 1,5 hours coordinated session where a group is presenting their work together. Presentations could be based on research as well as developmental work, and build on work-in-progress or finished projects. The abstract should indicate what type of work that is presented!

Presentations that concern any aspects of vocational education and training (VET) are welcome – the conference theme on learning environments could serve as inspiration, but other VET-related topics are also most welcome!

Papers and presentations could be in English, Danish, Norwegian, or Swedish. Each session will include presentations either in English or in Nordic languages, i.e. English/Nordic languages are not mixed in the same session. The paper should include 3–5 keywords, framing (general description, aim, theoretical framework, up to 200 words), methodology/methods (up to 100 words), expected outcomes (up to 100 words), and references (preferred style, APA 7th edition).
