What is an IASDR Workshop

Workshops will be held on the day prior to the congress, November 2, 2015. A workshop may be a half or full day in length. It’s expected that a workshop will have 15 to 25 participants.

Workshops are intended to encourage discussion and knowledge exchange.

Workshop Process

The following is the process to be considered:

  • Workshop organizers submit a workshop proposal to IASDR 2015 for review.
  • Workshop organisers invite potential participants to submit position papers.
  • The workshop organizers in collaboration with workshop chairs will review position papers and notify acceptance or rejection.

A workshop submission package must be submitted to the review system by 30 June 2015. IASDR 2015 Workshop Template should be used.

Reviewing Criteria

IASDR 2015 is looking for high quality workshops that articulate concrete outcomes.

The criteria reviewers will use are:

  • Relevance to the IASDR 2015 theme
  • Originality
  • Quality and research rigour
  • Clarity of communication
  • Quality of planning
  • Potential for community building and/or tangible outcomes

Please ensure that you have met IASDR 2015 criteria before submission. Please check, proofread and format your workshop proposal according to the IASDR 2015 style guidelines.
