Symposium themes:
1. Creating our future research selves
2. Implementing, interrogating, and innovating future research methods
3. Framing and reframing research futures – potential and possibilities
 
NB: While it is possible for presentations to draw on more than one theme, colleagues submitting presentation abstracts are asked to nominate one theme for particular focus in their presentations, please. Despite the diversity of these themes, all of them are intended to be inclusive of all research approaches, disciplines and philosophies.
 
Symposium presentations can take a variety of formats, including but not limited to:
Conceptual papers
Methodological papers
Sharing research data
Debates
Performances
Provocations
Empirical papers
 
Presentations may engage with the nominated symposium theme in a number of ways, and you are welcome to present research that is at any stage of development, from conception through to reflection. All fields of research are welcome, as are all levels of research experience. Each presentation will be allocated 15 minutes, with discussion following each symposium session.
