Abstract Submission Guidelines

Abstracts should be submitted through the conference system, as only the abstracts submitted through the conference system will be considered for inclusion in the conference. Please follow APA (6th ed.) guidelines while writing your abstract and avoid in-text citations and reference entries in the abstracts, if possible. The maximum abstract length is 1,500 characters. Every abstract will be peer-reviewed by two members of the scientific committee. If necessary, a third scientific committee member will be asked for an additional peer-review. If you are asked for revisions on your proposal, please upload the revised abstract using the conference system (“Authors Area” ---> “My Contributions”). The revised version of your abstract will be peer-reviewed again.
