Call for Symposium Proposals

Why Symposium?

Symposiums are designed to address an important topic, issue and/or to highlight new advances, methods/approaches, or emerging areas of interest. Symposiums generally feature 3-4 presentations by people from different institutions, perspectives, and/or traditions in the fields of digitalization and its impact on design, learning and innovation. Sessions will be limited to 2 hours and must include dedicated time for question/answer and discussion. Submissions should include an overall title for the symposium and should clearly communicate the importance of the main topics addressed, overall goals for the session, and brief description including each participant’s contribution to the symposium and individual titles if appropriate.

All accepted symposium papers will be part of the proceedings in Springer-LNICST.
