Paper Sessions: Paper
presentations are arranged around a general topic. Each Participant will
make a 15-minute presentation. A 5-minute general discussion will follow
the presentation. Papers may be one of the following types:
1) Theoretical, concept or idea-based paper: An
abstract (300 words) for a paper presentation should include the
concepts/theories/ideas to be addressed; related literature
and research; description of how the concepts/theories/ideas fit into
the context of existing literature and conference theme; and
conclusion or implications for the profession.
2) Research-based paper: An abstract (300 words)
or a research-based paper should include the problem statement,
question, or hypothesis; context of the problem as discussed in the
literature; research design and methodology; results/major findings;
and conclusions/implications of the study.
Poster Sessions: The poster sessions will be
held in a large room. Tables will be available for all presentations.
Presenters may request easels for their presentations. Presenters will
staff their assigned tables for the duration of noted poster sessions
in the conference program. Conference participants will circulate
among the presenters, asking questions and engaging in individualized,
informal dialogue with presenters about their
projects. Abstracts (200-300 words) for Poster Presentations should
include an overview of the research topic, concept/ideas and type of
results being shared, and implication for the profession.
Roundtable Sessions: The Roundtable format
allows maximum interaction with the presenters by eliminating the
formal presentation. Individual presenters are assigned to numbered
tables in a large meeting room where interested persons may gather for
discussion with the presenter about his or her paper or project. This
format is particularly appropriate for issues best pursued through
extensive discussion. Roundtables are to be organized to permit
informal discussion by presenters of research projects, doctoral
dissertations, pharmacieinde.fr, innovative instructional or administrative techniques,
or new types of instrumentation. Roundtables may be presented in
poster format, PowerPoint, or short discussion paper. Abstracts
(200-300 words) for Roundtables should include an overview of the
presentation; the concept/ideas to be discussed; context as discussed
in the literature; structure of participant interaction; outline of
questions to be addressed; and implication for the profession.
Symposia: Symposia are 50 minute sessions that
contain several papers on a single topic. Abstracts (200-300 words)
for a symposium should include an overview, summaries of several
papers, and suggestions for audience participation. The cover sheet
for a symposium should list the organizer as the senior author and
should include the title and presenter of each of the papers in the
symposium as "Co-authors." If the organizer presents a paper, that
person should be listed among the co-authors in addition to the
listing as organizer. Handouts: No handouts are required. All
presenters are expected to provide an electronic copy of their
presentation in Word format.
Conference Proceedings: Presenters' papers
submitted before May 2, 2014 will be included on a complimentary flash
drive of the 2014 ICOI Proceedings. The flash drive will contain a
copy of the conference proposal as well. Audio Visual Equipment: Each
breakout room will have a DLP/LCD projector and screen available for
use. Presenters should bring their electronic presentations on their
laptop or on a flash drive.
