Guidelines for the Abstract

In order for an abstract to be effective when displayed in the Conference Booklet, it must be an accurate, stand-alone reflection of the contents of the study. To help our participants when they write their abstracts, we have prepared the following guidelines. The abstract must be a concise yet articulate version of your paper. In particular:


  • The abstract should be a summary of the full article, without abbreviations, footnotes, or references.
  • The summary should range between 250-350 words.
  • The abstract should be written in one paragraph. No mathematical equations or tabular material should be included.
  • The abstract should include five or six different keywords, as this will help readers.
  • Ensure that your abstract is grammatically correct.
  • When submitting an abstract for your original research, it is important to state the primary objective and offer any tested hypotheses. Describe your research design and methodology and accurately state the following: the methods and procedures you employed, the main outcomes and results, and the conclusions that might be drawn from these data and results. Include any proposals for further research or application/practice.
  • If the paper is accepted the abstract will be used in the Conference Booklet, so the presentation should be clear. It is extremely important that the length limit should not be exceeded. Overlong abstracts will not be considered.
  • After the keywords, please state the conference strand for this presentation.
  • The abstract should followed by a maximum 100 word CV.
