Guidelines for Writing AbstractsAll the abstracts must be in English. (Presentations themselves may be in other languages, but in that case a Powerpoint presentation in English will need to be provided.)
To provide maximum information the abstract should consist of:
- Objectives/research questions - A brief statement of the purpose of the study
- Methods - A brief description of the methods used
- Results - A summary of the results obtained in sufficient detail
- Conclusions - Theoretical and/or practical implications
We will be compiling an abstract book directly from the submissions so please make sure that you adhere to the following guidelines:
- Use only 9-point Arial font for the entire submission
- The title should appear on the top line.
- Below the title line leave one line space blank and add the author list. Presenting author should appear first.
- Below the author line add affiliations. More than one affiliation can be indicated by appropriate numbers in parentheses next to the author name and corresponding affiliation.
- Following this, leave one line space and enter the abstract text.
- Make sure all lines are single spaced and aligned left.
Please indicate the preferred session for your paper. (If you are submitting an abstract for the Training Workshop, please mark session "G. Training Workshop" only.)
Please limit your abstract (including title, author and affiliations) to 500 words. Longer abstracts will be truncated at 500 words.
The deadline for submitting abstracts is 31 December 2013.
