Oral presentations

erscp21 invites all people interested to present their recent results of theoretical and applied research and related activities at the roundtable. The oral presentations will take place in parallel session at Graz University of Technology. We prefer to have all speakers at the workshop site, but there will also be possibilities to give your presentation via the Web. A template for abstract preparation in the only accepted format can be downloaded from our website “Call for papers. Please read the instructions carefully; the abstracts which do not adhere to these requirements and format will not be accepted and returned for resubmittal (always within the given deadline). Please carefully proofread the abstract before submission, and if necessary, have it read by a native English speaker. Abstracts will be reproduced exactly as submitted.

We especially invite master and PhD students to present their work and have it discussed by a big audience of experts!

All applications for oral presentations will be evaluated by members of the erscp-society and more invited experts.

For more details and deadlines see  our website “Call for papers

Poster presentations

There is also the possibility to present posters at the roundtable. Information about details see

Thematic sessions

erscp21 will provide the environment for partners to organize thematic sessions. These sessions are part of the roundtable, but they are managed by participants. They propose the theme, invite speakers and the form (oral presentation, workshop, roundtable discussion, …).

All people interested to propose and organize their own thematic session. A template for the proposal of thematic sessions can be downloaded from “Apply for thematic sessions and side events

Speakers’ Corner

Here the conference will provide a very low-profile possibility especially for young researchers and companies to present their findings in a short, concise manner.

On the one hand to give young scientists the opportunity to present themselves and on the other hand to give space to current, perhaps sudden ideas, there will be this Speakers’ Corner where short pitches will be held. The Speakers’ Corner will be set up in the break area. Its program will be constantly updated on the app and announced up to date on screens around the venue.

PhD Day September 7, 2021

Are you a PhD student in the field of Sustainable Production and Consumption? Do you want to introduce your work to senior mentors, learn about writing and publishing skills, and meet other likeminded students? Then you are invited to apply for the erscp2021 PhD day! 

During the day leading to the 20th erscp conference, you will get together with peers and mentors to improve your research, learn about how to develop your writing and publication skills and discuss early-career and PhD specific struggles. To apply, you need to submit a piece of your research, which will be reviewed by one of the senior mentors. In small sessions, you will present your work and receive feedback from your mentor and colleagues. In the afternoon, you will have the chance to interact with two panels of experts about how to write and publish quality articles, and how to successfully write research proposals. 

Therefore, the PhD day is a great opportunity not only to advance your work, but also to get a first contact with the conference, extend your network and meet other PhDs attending the conference. In order to make the most of the day, participation will be limited to 25 PhDs.

Register for the conference and reserve a place for the PhD day, and upload a short outline of your proposed presentation.
