Abstract Submission Instructions
Abstract Format and Layout Guidelines
- Abstracts must not exceed a 200-word limit. The word limit relates only to the text of the abstract and does not include title, authors and institutions.
- Use single line spacing.
- No tables, figures or images are allowed.
- Abstracts must be free of typographical and grammatical errors.
- Standard abbreviations may be used for common terms only. Otherwise, any abbreviation should be given in brackets after the first full use of the word. Abbreviations may be used in the title, provided the name in full is outlined in the body of the abstract.
- You will be asked to provide a short biography (up to 150 words) with your submission. Please take the time to include a couple of key points as this will be used by the chairpersons to introduce you.
- You will be asked to nominate your preference for oral presentation or poster presentation.
- Please include degrees or professional titles (e.g. Dr, Prof).
- It is the author’s responsibility to ensure the title, author and affiliation details entered in the paper submission site are correct and exactly as they should be published on the abstract and all Conference materials.
General Policy and Requirements
Compliance to the specifications is imperative – any abstract that does not comply with these specifications will not be accepted for review and will be returned to you by the Conference Managers for re-submission.
The purpose of the abstract is to define the precise subject of the presentation to an audience. The abstract should state the problem being addressed, the purpose of the paper, basic procedures/methods, main findings and principle conclusions in 2 – 3 paragraphs. References should be minimally cited in the body of the abstract.
The abstract title should be short, informative and contain the major key words.
Please list the contact author within the text box as indicated. The contact author may be different to the presenting author.
Please list ALL authors and affiliations within the text boxes as indicated on the abstract submission form.
Requirements for the Submission of Abstracts
- All abstracts must contain original work that has no prior ownership or copyright restrictions. Abstracts may be from a range of categories, including original research, case studies, and insight or review articles.
- All abstracts must be prepared according to the guidelines provided.
- We recommend that the presenting author submits the abstract.
- The presenter will be required to register and pay for the Conference to ensure their abstract(s) are included in the final program and Conference Proceedings – deadline for author registration is 10 September 2021.
- Do not resubmit an abstract for any reason other than a notified submission error. If you do not receive a submission confirmation email stating your abstract was successfully uploaded, please contact the Program Coordinator.
- It is the responsibility of the presenting author to ensure that the abstract is submitted correctly. After an author has submitted their abstract they must check their submission, which will be converted to a PDF file, to ensure the abstract has been formatted correctly.
- All submissions must be completed electronically via the online abstract submission portal. If you are unable to submit in this manner, please contact the Conference Managers via email email@example.com or phone +61 (2) 9265 0700.
- It is possible to submit multiple abstracts as the presenting author.
- Splitting of a body of work into multiple abstracts is discouraged and consolidation into one abstract is preferred.
