The Sixth International Language Assessment Conference in Egypt 2020

From: 9/1/2020   To: 9/2/2020



A presentation is a 30-35 minute talk covering the presenter’s research or demonstrating a new idea, followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion with the audience.


A workshop is an interactive session in which the facilitator guides the audience through the steps of implementing a new idea or technique. A workshop may include some formal presentation in which the facilitator explains the background and basics of the idea or technique. However, most of the session is dedicated to giving the audience hands-on practice with the new idea or technique, followed by time for discussion and questions.


The Talk Less, Inspire More session is when short 20-minute presentations are given one after another in which the presenters illustrate their ideas or research. The talk is accompanied by a brief PowerPoint. Several presentations happen sequentially in the same room with the audience hearing one presentation at a time. At the end of the presentations, a brief period for questions is given. This type of session gives the audience a chance to attend multiple presentations.


A poster session is an informal presentation in which the presenter uses a paper poster to illustrate new ideas or research. The poster is mounted on a board that includes a title, the name and institutional affiliation of the presenter(s), and brief pieces of text with clearly labeled photos, drawings, graphs, or charts. The poster is accompanied by a 10 minute oral explanation and followed by a brief period for questions. Several poster presentations happen simultaneously in the same room, with small audiences gathering around each poster to hear one presentation at a time. No AV equipment or electrical access is available. Detailed guidelines will be sent to accepted poster session presenters.
