Speakers instructions and fees

Please take notice of the following issues, before you prepare the material you wish to present at any of the GPD conferences. When preparing a paper, a workshop or a case study please remember that they are NOT sales pitches and as such should NOT be brand focused. Papers must be non-commercial, industrial, industrial scientific or fully scientific.

Program committee recommendations:

  • The abstract, paper and presentation should have a technical and design focus, and may include as much testing, hypothetical and final results as possible.
  • Show process design from initial selection through completion.
  • Show the material in its larger context with e.g. buildings, façade, design and/or implementation when possible.

Before beginning your abstract submission, please prepare the following:

1. The abstract of the paper(s) you are submitting (max. 200 words / abstract, 10 words / title)
2. The personal introduction of the speaker (max. 70 words / introduction)
3. Speaker’s photo (Recommended size is 100 x 100 pixels in the following formats .JPG .GIF or .PNG)
4. VAT number for companies in the EU.
