  • Focusing on the main theme, the organizers welcome abstracts from practitioners, researchers and academics including the non-governmental sector, international agencies and/or consultants, as well as any other interested individuals involved in probation and community corrections.
  • Proposals are welcome for individual or co-authored papers.

Selection and Notification

All workshop proposals will be reviewed rigorously by organizers and advisors who are international experts of probation and community corrections. Selection will be based on relevance to the congress’s main theme and workshop themes, as well as the balance of the type of presenters (diverse contents and perspectives, backgrounds and geographical diversity) and the schedule of each workshop session.

When submitting proposals, presenters are encouraged to indicate the workshop session in which they would like to present. However, the presenter’s choice of workshop session cannot be guaranteed. The organizers reserve the right to assign presenters to any of the congress workshops.
