(1) Structure of Abstracts

Abstracts should make reference to:
(a) background/context
(b) research aim/objectives
(c) methods and data sources, or equivalent for theoretical/conceptual papers
(d) key findings/takeaway points.

Abstracts must be between 200 and 400 words in length.

(2) Presentation Formats

  • Paper: Individual papers will be timed for 20 minutes: 15 minutes presentation and 5 minutes for Q&A. Suitable papers may be selected for Roundtable Discussion which would allow for maximum interaction among those in attendance.
  • Poster Presentations: Posters will be exhibited during the conference and presentation time will be scheduled in the conference programme. The topic should lend itself to presentation in poster format. Final poster versions should be A0 (118.9 cm x 84.1 cm). Virtual posters may also be submitted in PDF format and we encourage the use of multimedia and hyperlinks for these. These will be available on demand and may be presented in person at the conference also.
  • Concise On-Demand Paper: Concise papers will be pre-recorded papers timed for 5-7 minutes. They will be recorded and submitted in .mp4 format and will be available on-demand and at the conference.
  • Symposium: Symposia will typically contain 3 papers based around a central theme and will usually be timed for 60 minutes. This should include at least 10 minutes for discussion after the papers have been presented. To submit a symposium proposal, please use the form below to enter the symposium title, all author details, and the abstract for the overall symposium, then upload the Symposium Proposal form (which can be downloaded at this link) to provide the remaining details about symposia papers, etc.). The convenor of the symposium will be responsible for chairing the session.
  • Early Career Researcher: ECR papers will be timed for 15 minutes: 10 minutes presentation plus 5 minutes feedback from an experienced mentor, plus a brief open discussion at the end of the session. The ECR strand is intended for current research students or those who have recently completed a research degree.


(3) Abstract Review

All abstracts will be blind-reviewed (reviewers of abstracts will not see the identity of the author(s), and the author(s) will not see the identity of reviewers).
