Each participant will be given 30 minutes for their presentation; this can be used for a 15-minute talk and 15-minute discussion or a 20-minute talk and a 10-minute discussion. It is up to the participant to decide which they prefer.
Please prepare a PowerPoint presentation and bring it with you on the day. Please speak with Phil Davies of the CADE Organising Committee prior to your session to have it uploaded to the laptops provided at the venue before your presentation slot begins to ensure timings run smoothly.

CADE Venue

All forum activities will take place in the Palazzo Pesaro Papafava, Calle de la Rachetta, Cannaregio 3764, 30121 Venezia. We've created a Google Map showing the locations of the venues used for CADE2018; please save this link for your records: Further information about Palazzo Pesaro Papafava can be found here.

How To Get There

Palazzo Pesaro Papafava is indicated as a Yellow Star on the CADE Google Map. Upon arrival, look for the door on the left which is the entrance to the building; there is a bridge just a few meters away from the door (the bridge is on the map).

If the door is open, you will see Warwick University banner just inside. If the door isn’t open, it will be unlocked so just walk in. You will enter a small room, where you take the stairs on the left to the first floor and go through a set of doors to reach the actual venue.

You can either travel by bus/ferry and Vaporetto, Alilaguna line boat, or water taxi. Nearest water transport stops are shown on the CADE Google Map using blue markers.
