Track Description
Panels afford the opportunity to discuss timely topics that are important, provocative, and contested. A good panel engages the audience and invited experts in a discussion that stimulates interaction and significantly advances attendees’ understanding of a complex topic. Panel topics are varied, but generally pertain to contemporary issues that demand focused research attention, new research challenges, or changes to the status quo of the discipline. Panels related to the conference theme, and panels including a senior practitioner, are especially welcome. We encourage proposals that are innovative, inspirational, and potentially controversial, leaving the audience with more questions and issues to debate and consider after the panel is over.
