Abstract submission guidelines

Abstracts are invited for the following forms of presentation:

Open Symposia

Symposia sessions involve a series of papers (3-4) on a pre-set theme arranged by the symposium organiser. Submissions for this type of symposium require a short title of the symposium (12 words maximum) and an abstract of 400 words (maximum) describing the major theme that connects the presentations. A list of paper presentations, including authors contact information, paper titles and paper abstracts (250 words maximum) is also required. The proposal should indicate if the symposium will include a presider and a discussant. It is expected that each symposium includes speakers from more than one country.

Each presenting author must be registered at the conference.

Deadline for submission of symposium proposal: February 21st, 2020

Oral Presentations

We invite oral presentations of papers on the topics noted under 'conference themes' above. At the submission please select up to two topics that are more related to your work. Submissions should include a short title of the paper (12 words maximum) and a 250 word (maximum) abstract that provides all relevant information (e.g. research question, sample and methods, types of analysis and main or expected findings/results).

Each paper session will be timetabled for 1.5 hours. Generally sessions will include 4 - 5 papers.

Deadline for oral presentations: March 2nd, 2020.

Poster Presentations

Similar to paper presentations, poster submissions should include a short title of the paper (12 words maximum) and a 250 word (maximum) abstract that provides information about the research question, sample and methods, the type of analysis and main or expected findings/results.

Deadline for poster presentations: March 15th, 2020.

Accepted posters can be printed by the authors or arrangements can be made to have these printed ahead of the conference at Oxford Brookes University and collected on arrival (details to follow). Posters to be produced in size A1 (vertical).

Posters will be displayed during the conference in the Clerici building. During the scheduled poster session, authors must be present to engage with colleagues viewing the posters.
