Nordic Police Research Conference Online in June 14th-16th, 2021
Welcome to the Nordic Police Research Conference. The Conference will be held in a virtual platform, not in Tampere. However, the speakers, presenters, participants and issues will be very real.
We shall keep our original theme – Police Education: Altius – Fortius – Diutius – as well as the original programme as intact as possible.
However, there will be changes to the schedule and to the delivery of the programme. We want to make the virtual conference work and acknowledge that the recipe for failure is trying to reproduce the traditional form, but in a virtual venue. Expect to see something old, something new, something joyful too.
We are looking forward to publish all the important dates within the next weeks. So far we have decided the following: the venue (virtual); the dates for the Conference (June 14th-16th, 2021); the conference fee (free); and registration (required).

VIRTUAL WORKING GROUPS
The initial screening for presentations at the working groups will be done on the basis of abstracts submitted to us. For each accepted presentation we expect the author(s) to provide a longer paper (5-15 pages in English [pdf]) or a public link to it in advance and allows us to make it available at the Preconference. We shall provide at least 20 minutes time online for each paper at the working group and expect the other participants to it having an understanding of the paper that makes the discussion of it more fruitful.
VIRTUAL POSTER PRESENTATIONS
We would like to encourage the attendees to inform the participants to the Conference about their police related pursuits, whether practical, research-based, theoretical or philosophical, in our poster sessions. Send us a video recording (MPEG-4) or a public link to it that we can made available at the Preconference. The video should be no longer than 15 minutes. The poster session itself provides an opportunity to discuss about the subject of the poster personally. We shall facilitate the latter by providing each presenter an individual online discussion venue and expect the presenter be available this way at the date and time announced at the programme.
Registration to the Conference is now open. Please send email: firstname.lastname@example.org (name, affiliation, email)
