Practitioner Sessions

One major goal of this congress is to bring practitioners and scientists together in order to generate future profit for both parts. Therefore, practitioners are cordially invited to join the EAWOP 2013 conference as participants and especially as contributors. Several sessions are exclusively reserved for contributions and debates from the practitioners’ perspective. Help closing the practitioner-scientist gap with your inspiring ideas and concepts!

Submissions from the practitioner perspective can be indicated as practitioner or scientist-/practitioner-contributions in the submission process, and will be reviewed by renowned international practitioners.

Furthermore, new and interactive parts of the congress are offered to inspire both practitioners and scientists, and may facilitate future cooperation – for example:
