Abstract Submission:

Authors who submit an abstract of a paper confirm that they have not been published previously or simultaneously elsewhere and that they are not planning to present or publish them prior to the dates of this Conference.
The Conference Committee will evaluate the submitted abstracts on the basis of the following criteria: novelty of the research, significance of the findings, and clarity. Abstracts must describe in a succinct manner the purposes and findings of the research so that the quality, originality, and comprehensiveness of the work can be evaluated by the Conference Committee. Titles should be indicative of the content of the abstract and nonstandard abbreviations should be avoided. Other abbreviations may be used in the body of the abstract if they are defined at their first mention in the text. If an abstract is poorly written such that the Conference Committee cannot determine its novelty and importance, the paper will not be accepted for presentation at the conference.

The accuracy of the submitted abstract is the responsibility of the authors. Every effort will be made to publish the abstract exactly as submitted. Authors should prepare and proofread their abstracts carefully before submission. Errors made on submitted abstract are likely to appear in print. The organising committee reserves the right to do copy editing and minor changes for the purposes of coherence and consistency of style.
Because of administrative and time constraints, supplemental data submitted along with the abstracts cannot be transmitted to the Conference Committee for review. 

The body of the abstract should not exceed 500 words and the documents should be in word files (extensions allowed .doc, .docx, .rtf, .tex). 

All PRESESENTERS must register to attend the Conference. If an abstract is accepted and the presenter does not register, the abstract may be withdrawn.
