IPMA research conferences are not like typical conferences where
most of the research happens beforehand and the participants are
primarily listeners. In the IPMA research conferences we prepare the
structure and work methods thoroughly and then invite selected
presenters to come and inspire the participants with their lectures on
chosen topics. The value lies primarily in what happens during the
conference, during the fruitful discussions, work shops, world café
sessions and networking that results when people with different
backgrounds and perspectives meet to discuss important subjects.
