Workshops are sessions dedicated to actively engaging participants in different and novel types of activities and themes. Workshop submissions will include sessions that actively engage participants in activities around (e.g., problem definition, small discussion groups, mapping themes, do-it-yourself, hands-on group work, etc.). Workshop topics can respond to any area of interest of PD (e.g., theoretical reflections, methodologies, practices, etc.).

For PDC 2024, workshops can be in-person or hybrid (in-person and online); purely online Workshops are not possible. Workshops can take place in sessions for half the day or full day during the conference. You can check our previous hybrid workshops from PDC 2020 and PDC 2018.

You can submit your paper via the ConfTool submission system.
