Abstract SubmissionPresentation Based on Abstract
All submitted short-abstracts will undergo a blind review. An abstract (maximum of 200 words), clearly summarizing the arguments, should be submitted before deadline. The committee normally reaches its decision within two weeks after abstract submission. All abstracts must be submitted in English using an ‘Abstract Submission Form’. All abstracts will be published online after the conference and uploaded on GLSME’s website.

Abstract Evaluation Criteria
All abstracts submitted for presentation are reviewed by one of the Conference Committee members. Abstracts are evaluated and accepted for presentation based on the following selection criteria:
- Clear description of the research topic in the title
- Clear and concise description of the research – focused objectives, clearly stated study design/methodology, clearly presented results (whether preliminary), and well-drawn conclusion and/or recommendations for future research
- Relevance, currency, appropriateness and significance of the abstract/issue/problem to the Conference theme
- Originality - theoretical orientations and/or practical application or contribution to the field
- Evidence of a high standard of research and/or practice (where applicable)
Ways of Presentation
For your presentation, you can either use PowerPoint or Prezi, whichever is more convenient for you. For PowerPoint presentation, we request you to kindly bring it on your own USB/memory stick. You do not need to email us your presentation copies. However, please note that each delegate will be given internet access during the conference.
You will be given 20-25 minutes (maximum) for your poster presentation. Please note that your presentation must be in English language. You can bring your poster printed on the A1 size paper and display it in the conference, or you can also use PowerPoint, whichever is more convenient to you. For PowerPoint presentation, we request you to kindly bring it on your own USB/memory stick.
You are required to give an oral presentation of 20 minutes (maximum) plus 5 minutes for discussion where other participants may ask you questions regarding your presentation. Please note that your presentation must be in English language.
Each Delegate will be given a wifi code to use internet connection during the conference
All acceptances are contingent on receipt of a full paper that essentially matches what was outlined in the Abstract (minor deviations are, of course, acceptable; however major change in topic or not providing data/empirical results where such were ‘promised’ are not acceptable).
