Presenting at the Conference

Present your research, contribute to your field, and collaborate with other professionals by presenting a workshop or poster at the PREPSEC International Conference in Wroclaw, Poland October 20-21, 2016.

There are two ways to contribute outlined below:

30 minute workshops, 1 hour workshops

Workshops are the foundation of the PREPSEC International Conference. Through workshops, attendees and presenters alike leave the conference rejuvenated and inspired to delve deeper in their practices.
Workshops must be presented in English and, therefore, sufficient time should be allocated for questions at the end. We hope you will come and share your knowledge of Social Emotional Competencies and/or inter-cultural tolerance, while networking with others in your field.

Poster Presentations

During the conference, there will be networking time that will also include those who wish to present information on research, programs, and ideas in the form of a poster presentation. Presenters will prepare their poster in advance and stand next to it in order to answer questions, provide information, and offer follow-up opportunities for those who are interested. Posters are meant to be informational. People need to be able to get the information quickly from the poster, so it is suggested that a blend of photos, drawing, graphs, charts, and words be used.
Types can include: A description of an innovative program, an analysis of a problem and how you addressed it, or a report of new research as it relates to social emotional competencies and/or inter-cultural tolerance.

Conference fee

Conference fees: 675 DKK/person for those OUTSIDE of Poland.
