    Call for presentations

    One of the main goals of this event is to encourage you as a researcher to step out of your office and present your research to colleagues at the Faculty of Law and Criminology. You can do this in three different ways:

    • A poster presentation
      Produce an attractive and clear academic poster that attract people’s attention and serves as a conversation starter.
    • A ‘classic’ 15-minute presentation (individual or in panel)
      Although it does take time to make a good presentation, it is well worth the investment: a good oral presentation is probably the best way to stand out at an academic conference.
    • A two-minute pitch
      Get the stage for two minutes. Try to condense your research into something easily digestible that sparks conversation.

    Find out more about the requirements for each of the formats.


    Our participants are offered expert training for preparing their poster, presentation or pitch. The workshops are organised in collaboration with Doctoral Schools.

    • Learn how to develop a captivating poster - 23 August (9AM - noon)
    • Discover what makes a pitch great - 31 August (1h30PM - 4h30PM)
    • Find out how to give a killer presentation - 5 September (1:30PM - 4:30PM)
