Please note that a round table organizer will have the leading responsibility in assuring the quality of the session in terms of defining a clear discussion topic and targeted outcome, taking care of the session moderation, as well as defining and (ideally) also attracting the right stakeholders to the table. The organizer’s capacity to do so will be very much taken into consideration when evaluating the application. BEYOND 2020 Organising Committee will provide support to most convincing session proposals, where needed, in order to assure the overall high quality of sessions.
We expect a high level of competition for the few available spots we have.
When selecting round table proposals for inclusion in the conference programme, the BEYOND 2020 Organising Committee will pay attention to the quality of the applications, their general alignment with the thematic objectives of the conference, and the overall variety of sessions in terms of thematic focus and geographic spread.
