It has to contain four main elements: (1) Title, (2) Submitter(s) contact details, (3) Affiliation and (4) Abstract submission content.


Your title should be succinct yet clearly describe your presentation. It can be 12 words or less and should, where appropriate, include clear indications of the location(s) and period(s) discussed. Please use sentence case (i.e. the first letter of the sentence is capitalised, with the rest being lowercase except for proper nouns and acronyms). Please avoid any abbreviations in the title.

Submitter contact detailsaffiliation

After the title, it is good to provide your name, contact details (email address /mobile number) and affiliation. Please note that all correspondence will be with this person.

Abstract submission content

Abstract content should be clear and concise to both specialists and non-specialists. It should chiefly include:

  • The identification of the topic of your paper. In one sentence, you can describe the main idea of your presentation.
  • The research question(s) and problem(s) you investigated.
  • The importance/significance and contribution of your research in your research field or generally the academic community.
  • The methodological approach used or proposed. It is important to describe this approach and how it helps you to solve the problem(s) of your research.
  • The outcomes uncovered from your analysis. It is good to state and discuss significant positive and/or negative findings.
  • A brief summary of your interpretations and conclusions.

The abstract should not contain:

  • Images, tables, graphics or references.
  • Lengthy background or contextual information.
  • Acronyms or abbreviations. If you want to use abbreviations, you have to place it in parentheses after the full word the first time it appears.
  • Terms that may be confusing to the reader.

Please ensure that your abstract is carefully checked for spelling, grammar, punctuation, and clarity, as it will not undergo further editing. It is strongly advised to thoroughly proofread your abstract prior to submission. For consistency, please use British English throughout your abstract.
