The open call for papers to be presented at the 5th International Conference ON THE SURFACE: Photography on Architecture will be directed to the issues proposed for the three panels. (see more at PANEL#1, PANEL#2 and PANEL#3).
A set of papers with profile (a) will be selected to be published in Sophia Journal and a set of projects and visual essays with a maximum of 1000 words of second format (b) will be selected to publish in scopio Magazine
It is intended that this call will yield a significant collection of diverse texts and visual narratives, allowing a rich and deep reflection of how photography and image can be used for understanding the set of issues around the theme of public space transformation. A set of abstracts / papers will be selected for oral presentation and poster session.
For oral presentations of each panel, authors will present their work one-by-one (no more than 15 minutes, potentially 10 minutes) and there will be in each panel a roundtable for debate and authors will also be available to take questions for a few minutes.
For the poster session of each panel, authors will have their posters (in a standard size) mounted on boards in a specific space where the conference is taking place For a fixed period of time during the conference, all participants are invited to wander round the posters. Poster presenters typically stand by the posters and answer questions as people come by.
The poster presentation session will be more casual than the oral presentation, which does not mean that it is any less important or credible.
