CONFERENCE FORMAT

ALL IN ONE

  • Welcome ceremony
  • Keynote speeches
  • Parallel sessions
  • Posters/projects exhibition area
  • Closing ceremony

 

All those events will be held at Re Enzo Palace in the large hall called Salone del Podestà (14 * 65 mt).

 

Why all in one?

To promote the discussion between participants and generate a sense of collective endeavor.

 

What about the acoustic noise?

Professional technicians will use different solutions to reduce the environmental noise in the main hall.

Moreover all participants (speakers or listeners) at the registration desk will receive a wireless headphone similar to those used for guided visits. There will be one channel for each round table discussion and the participant can key in what he or she listens to.

 

20 (R)SOLUTIONS GROUPED IN 5 MACRO-TOPICS

1) improving perFORMance

2) right for a quality shelter

3) knowledge transfer

4) post carbon cities

5) + resilience – vulnerability

 

Why?

To facilitate a vibrant discussion around tables between those participants who deal with similar topics.

 

To distribute an equal number of speakers (and attendees) around each table.

 

To make things easier.  Those 5 macro-topics will be reflected into the final Plea 2015 sustainability chart. It will be a summary of the best proposals, solutions, suggestions came out from each table during the three days of conference.  

 

AROUND 1 TABLE 10 CHAIRS AND UNLIMITED NUMBER OF LISTENERS

Around each table there are 10 chairs: 1 for the chairman, 1 for the young supporter, 8 for the speakers. Some of them will present their paper orally through powerpoint, the others will present their project orally using posters. Both poster and powerpoint will be projected to the closest digital screen. Printed posters will be exposed in the same hall. The second round of chairs is free for the audience.

 

THE CHAIRMAN ROLE

The main role is to foster the discussion around the table together with the young supporter.

To do so, chairmen will read previously those papers selected for his/her round table discussion and will prepare a list of questions to be directed to the 8 speakers.

While answering to the question each speaker will present his/her own work.
