Call for Proposals
Submission of proposals is officially open and we will be reviewing proposals until deadline of April 30th, 2018.
Submissions for symposia/round tables, individual papers, theoretical/philosophical posters, workshops, sponsors, exhibitors are welcome.
Notifications will be made in early-to-mid May.
Our repertoire of suggested topics includes but is not restricted to: research, case study, theories, experiences, rescue, treatments, or therapy of all kinds of trauma, war, abuse, losses, and recovery.
It is our hope that the conference format will be driven by the unique synergy of the particular submissions received. As such, if accepted, your paper submission may be formatted in one of the following ways:
The majority of accepted papers are given 20 minutes and will be organized on panels of papers with similar content, themes, and/or thinkers. There will be additional time for Q & A (20 minutes). These panels may be discipline-specific or interdisciplinary in makeup.
Some accepted papers will be given about 1 and 1/2 hours and will be paired with an interdisciplinary discussant (assigned by steering committee in conversation with the proposal author). After all submissions are received, the steering committee will select papers that fit into this category and invite the author(s) to participate in this format. There will be additional time for Q & A.
Symposia will be formatted in 1 and 1/2 hour slots. Symposia are intended to be pre-organized combinations of papers on a shared area of scholarship (3-6 persons). Conversations between symposium members and/or the inclusion of discussants is expected as a part of the program. The symposium chair is responsible for organizing and submitting the proposal.
Posters are strongly valued at this conference and are given significant space and time slot. We do not consider this designation to be a "second class" category. We welcome posters as another means of representing this area of scholarship.
The aims of workshops are to emphasize emerging topics not specifically covered in the main symposia, also, to provide a comprehensive forum on topics that will not be fully explored during the main conference as well as to encourage in-depth discussion of practical and application issues.
It is our pleasure to offer you several outstanding sponsorships and exhibition opportunities together with excellent marketing and public relations opportunities and high visibility at the DCIOP 2018 Conference which will be held July 17-18 2018 at the JiHer Campus at Ming Chuan University, Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C.
