The conference will have two parallel tracks: the Research Track and the Practitioners’ Track. While the Research Track is the primary focus of the conference, we would also like the conference to provide some practical guidance to CJ practitioners dealing with "nuts and bolts" of the everyday criminal justice practice.
Two presentation options are available within the Research Track: Panel Presentations and Poster Sessions. The panels include formal presentations of written papers, with time allotted for discussion. The poster session allows for a summary presentation of individual works. Authors post printed information about their research on a board for inspection by attendees; further, separate sessions are scheduled for the authors to meet with interested parties at their poster locations for further informal discussion on a particular study.
Novel research papers and posters are invited on any topic related to contemporary theory and practice of social control. While papers typically present results from completed research, poster presentations are especially appropriate for works in progress. Although we are primarily looking for research papers, high-quality conceptual papers will also be considered.
Two presentation options are also available within the Practitioners’ Track: Workshops and Roundtables. Workshops include formal presentations with a variable number of presenters aimed at disseminating information among the participants, rather than eliciting discussion. They are focused on a particular practical issue, providing applicable information and/or experience on such as "Understanding police work", "Crime prevention of economic crimes in practice", "Training for dealing with victims of state crimes", "Motivating for partnership in risk reduction", "What are advantages and disadvantages of crime control and prevention programmes?", "What are the main problems of criminal investigation of insurance fraud?", or "Does deterrence work?" We encourage workshops founded on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and perspectives. Roundtables should emphasize open discussions on diverse viewpoints in a particular topic area. Several well-informed individuals serve as discussants, though no formal papers are presented. Such examples might include roundtables on "Can high levels of safety/security and human rights be reconciled?" or "What can be done for better understanding of the role of police in crime prevention?".
