Virtual Conference. The PreConference will open on June 7th and the Conference online on 14th-16th as in the programme.
Registration is required. The attendees will receive two electric tickets to the submitted email-address (see registration). The first one provides access to the PreConference material and the second one to the Conference itself.
Registration to the conference by sending the following information (1) your name, (2) affiliation and (3) email-address you would request to receive the ticket to the Conference by May 28th to email@example.com.
Please note, that we may have to limit the maximum number of attendees to 200 participants. In that case, the priority will be given to our speakers, the attendees presenting a paper in a working group or a virtual poster, and then to the early birds in the order of registration.
No fee, but registration is required.
PreConference opens on June 7th 2021. It opens access to the informational content of the Conference (keynote speeches, working group papers and posters). The idea of the PreConference is to offer the attendees an opportunity to familiarise themselves with the core issues, arguments and insights put forward by the speakers and authors that will then be then discussed constructively, critically and reflectively online during the Conference.
The Conference offers opportunities for more interactive ways to deepen prior learning in discussions with the authors. The PreConference gives access to the full presentation, while at the Conference the author will give a shorter synopsis of it as a reminder of its main points. Naturally, it will be the full version that is subject to either structured (key notes) or open discussion (working groups).
Papers to be presented at the working groups will be invited on the basis of the abstracts send to us by April 30th 2021. We expect that the invited author(s) submit us a longer paper (5-15 pages) that will be made available for the registered Conference attendees at the PreConference. The date for submitting the papers will be specified later. For each author(s) we shall allocate at least 15 minutes time online at the working group for the presentation and discussion. We expect that the participants to the working groups have acquired a prior understanding of the content of the presentations at the PreConference. The Conference participants are free to choose the working group they want to attend.
Virtual poster presentation provides an opportunity to inform the Conference attendees on previous, ongoing, or forthcoming RDI-projects, their objectives, designs, results or outcomes in the field of safety and security, police education, law enforcement and policing. The poster presentations are invited on the basis of abstracts send to us by April 30th 2021. The invited presenters are expected to make a video recording of the presentation of the poster, send to us either a link to it or the MP4-file itself as well as a link to a meeting (e.g. Zoom, Teams, Skype) with him or her at the specified time. The idea is that the recorded presentation is made available at the PreConference and the presenter(s) is available for about an hour for further information at a designated day and time at the online Conference. We shall publish the link for the Conference attendees and they can thus turn to the presenter for further enlightenment on the subject of the poster.
