The format of the section “Fachpolitisches Forum” is more open than that of the other sections; in addition to individual papers, group presentations or panel discussions are also possible. You can propose either a single presentation of your own or a pre-designed event.
You submit an individual presentation in the same way as a section presentation (section 17). If you are planning a complete forum or would like to apply as a group, please submit a one- to two-page description of the planned event, stating,
- what professional issue the event will focus on,
- what format is planned (individual presentations, group presentations, panel, etc.),
- which guests are planned.
The forums are in German, therefore the submissions should also be in German. The forums will be 1.5 hours long.
Submissions for forums do not have to be anonymous. Please name the file according to the following pattern: Keyword_Your Last Name, e.g. Diversity_Weissel.docx.
Acceptance of proposals will be decided by the GAP.11 Steering Committee, and you will be notified of the decision by May 2022.
For any queries, please contact .
Following the GAP.11 Congress, there will again be so-called satellite workshops. The 16th and 17th of September are reserved for this.
Satellite workshops can benefit in many ways from a connection to GAP.11 – vice versa, of course. If you would like to organize a satellite workshop following GAP.11, please send us your proposal via email to by December 15, 2021.
The proposal should outline the topic and include information on duration and expected number of participants. The organizing committee will respond to your proposals expeditiously. Unfortunately, the GAP cannot provide funding.
