Your abstract should include, but not be limited, to the following:

  1. Purpose/objectives of the paper
  2. Conceptual/theoretical background or framework
  3. Methods/techniques
  4. Results/conclusion/contributions/implications

Please ensure that all abstracts are written as one paragraph. The abstract should contain information refering to and touching on the categories listed above, (eg. purpose / theoretical background / methods / results) but no headings should be used within the abstract itself to indicate this.

For panel submissions you should follow a two step process:

1. First download this MS word template and complete it with all the necessary details offline and save it as an MS word file.

2. Then log in to submit your panel using the abstract submission system and during the submission of your panel copy and paste the relevant section from the MS word template into the online abstract submission box (max 1,000 words), then also attach the completed MS word template as an attachment before completing submission.
