Meet the Authors

18 June 2019

For the third year in a row, the Editorial Committee of the IMISCOE Book Series and Springer are hosting a short event during the Annual Conference where some of our authors whose book got published in the past twelve months can discuss their publication with conference participants. Rather than a classic book presentation, this event is more similar to a roundtable discussion where authors respond to discussants’ comments on the main features of their book and the audience is explicitly invited to take part in the discussion.


Time: 27 June from 11.45 to 13.00 (lunch time), room A0306 (floor 3).
