Guidelines for presentations



    Contributing a presentation to the Conference/Festival is optional - most participants do not submit a presentation.

   A presentation can be:


 - Performance by a company, a duo or a soloist

 - Lecture with projection of video or slides (20 minutes)

 - Class (30 minutes)

 - Exhibition and sale of your publications or produce.


    For each presentation a separate file must be submitted prior to the congress, to be included in the proceedings. This text can be accompanied by pictures, music or video samples.


Time allowed  Lecture: 20 minutes (including questions by the audience); Classes 30 minutes; Performances 5 to 10 minutes on stage.

Publication   The Conference proceedings will be published as a DVD. This DVD will be distributed world wide in many thousands of copies.

Languages   Working languages are English and the language of the hosting country; other languages can be used, without simultaneous translation.

Texts   6,000 words maximum for each presentation.

Format   Send your text by email as .doc  or .ppt  format. Send also a printed copy or a DVD if you wish. Have your text corrected by a person very competent in the language used, in order to ensure it is absolutely ready for publication. Formats: see table below.

Deadline   Send a description of your presentation (full text, eventually accompanied by pictures, video and/or music) at least one month before the opening day in order to be included in the program and the proceedings DVD.

Structure of texts   Divide your text into sections, each with a numbered heading. Start with your name, the title of the presentation, an outline, then the sections of your development of the theme. Include a short presentation of the author (profile, CV) in the text.

Content of other texts   Texts accompanying a lecture, a class, a performance or an exhibition are brief or detailed descriptions. Send a separate text for each presentation, following the guidelines above.

Networking   Bring a number of printed copies of your text, and sufficient brochures or other printed material to distribute (you will need many visiting cards too).

Total volume  of all presentations by a participant (text + sound + images + video + CV) should not exceed 100 Mb
