Abstracts might focus any of the areas listed in the section “topics”.
The abstracts can be one-page long (200-500 words). The abstract should include, in general: Problem Statement, Purpose of Study, Methods, Findings and Results, and Conclusions and Recommendations (These elements may need some adaptation in the case of discussion papers: Background, Purpose of Study, Sources of Evidence, Main Argument, and Conclusions). Please note that some elements are optional in the abstracts.
All abstracts must be submitted in English.
Due to the large number of papers expected for this conference, the committee only allows an author to present maximum two papers.
Abbreviations should be defined the first time they appear in your text. Example: HEA (Higher Education Area), before being used as an abbreviation only. Please, do not define or use abbreviations in the title.
The selection panel of the conference committee will consider all paper abstracts received by the submission deadline to ensure that the proposed paper is relevant to the Conference.
The deadline for abstract submission is 20th of October, 2010 (included).
The Notification of acceptance/rejection of the abstracts submitted will be sent to you via e-mail by 30th of October, 2010.
