Format of the conference

The conference poses three types of meetings (exchange, dialogue and experience) to be attended in-person or online.


It will begin with sessions of work based on plenary meetings with specialists in the field of art, artistic education, illustration and other. This format will assist in the reflection on topics proposed in the conference that will be developed throughout the morning’s sessions.

The topics of the plenary meetings will be complemented with exchange sessions or panel discussions where specialists that intervene everyday together with other guests will share common points in their fields, also exchanging their ideas with the participants. We stand out the relevance of this meeting for the participants, since we pose the Conference as a meeting for discussion and dialogue.

ONLINE participants may follow the plenary meetings online streaming and participate in the discussions via Twitter (the Conference’ website will also provide access to Twitter).


The panel discussions are another format included in the conference. They will be coordinated by specialists of different fields (educators, illustrators and artists) who will reflect on the congress topics. This format will help to share with the participants the chosen papers on investigation and educational practices, exchanging the experiences. The panel discussions will take place during the morning and afternoon’s sessions.

The organization will group the proposals of the participants in work-groups according to their common points and similarities in the studies and the questions/key ideas that they deal with.

In order to boost the panel discussions the coordinators will ask the participants to send a proposal with questions that conduct the discussion.

The papers will be published on the website previous to the conference.

ONLINE participants, as well as in-person participants, who present a paper will be able to follow the panel discussions through Hangouts.

In addition to these panel discussions, in-person participants will also have available informal meeting points where they can freely exchange information, comment their works, etc.


Practical sessions of work (workshops) will be also organized. These sessions will work as a place to develop work projects regarding the topics of the conference. This format is foreseen for the in-person sessions of the afternoon.
