Several points require emphasis:

  1. Authors of research papers who wish to have their abstracts considered for presentation (verbal or poster) must submit their abstract electronically via the Conference website having regard to the published closing date. Abstracts submitted after the closing date will not be considered.
  2. The title should be brief and explicit.
  3. Research papers should follow the format - Purpose, Methodology, Results, Conclusion.
  4. Excluding title, authors (full given first name and family name) and institution, the abstract must not exceed 2,000 characters and spaces (approximately 300 words). In MS Word, this count can be determined from the ‘Tools menu’. Any references must be included in this allowance. If you exceed this limit, the excess text will NOT appear on the conference platform.
  5. Abbreviations should be used only in common terms. For uncommon terms, the abbreviation should be given in brackets after the first full use of the word.
  6. Presentations (slide and video) will only have electronic PowerPoint support. Audio visual instructionswill be available in correspondence sent to all successful authors.
  7. A 50 word CV is required from each presenter to facilitate the Chair’s introduction. The excess text will not be captured by the system.
  8. The acceptance, timing, presentation and discussion of all papers and posters is at the discretion of the Organising Committee. Notification of the timing of presentations will appear in correspondence sent to all successful authors.
  9. Tables, diagrams, graphs, etc. CANNOT be accepted in the abstract submission. This is due to the limitations of the computer software program.
  10. Please do not type in your abstract onto the submission page. Being internet based, each page on the submission site can only be open for 15 minutes before closing. Type your submission on a text document (eg. MS Word) and copy and paste it into the abstract text field.
  11. Authors must be registered for the Conference in order to present their abstract (verbal or e-Poster) at the conference.
  12. Authors are required to declare conflict of interest if applicable. Failure or refusal to disclose or the inability to resolve the identified conflict will result in the abstract acceptance being withdrawn.
