- Papers with peer-response: Papers in this category will be given 20 minutes for a presentation, 10 minutes for a prepared response/discussion from a peer, and 10 minutes discussion with audience. Authors who want/ their paper considered for this category, must be prepared to send a full paper to their peer by 1. September 2012, in order for the peer to prepare a response.
- Paper without peer-response: papers in this category will be given 15 minutes for a presentation and 10 minutes for a discussion with audience.
At the time of submitting the abstract, the author must mark which category the paper is to be considered for. Also the author will be given the opportunity of specifying eventual particular requests as to the choice of a peer-responder. Only those who present papers themselves, give key-notes speeches, lead/participate in the panel debates or are in other ways held in high, academic regard within the research area, will be asked to give their response to others. When submitting the abstract, the author will be required to state their willingness/unwillingness to give peer-response.
The peer-response system at the MAKING-conference should be known by an orally presented, constructive critical reading of the paper, given by a peer on equivalent level of education, academic position, as the writer. The format may be response or a prepared discussion. It is emphasized that the peer-response should be exactly that: a response, not a review. Detailed guidelines for the peer-response system is found here.
