    Hi Everyone,
    Think you need help preparing your abstract? Consider these five points:

    1. Motivation: Why did you conduct the research? Why do you want to say what you will say? What do you hope to achieve?

    2. Problem Statement: What is the problem/challenge or issue that your paper/presentation will address? Why is it important for you to make this intervention now?

    3. Approach: What is the approach that you took? If it is based on research, which methodologies and methods of analysis did you employ? If it is based on professional reflection, what is the scope of the reflection and how did you go about analysing your experience?

    4. Results: What did you find out? What are the main issues raised by your research enquiry or reflection?

    5. Conclusions: What do your findings suggest about the problem and its resolution? What will you recommend?

    Looking forward to receiving your abstracts!
    Terri-Ann Gilbert-Roberts

    How long will the actual paper be and the presentation times if proposals are accepted? And when will the paper deadline be?

      Hello Des, presentations are usually 15 minutes. We may request some full papers at a later date or even after the conference and will provide details at that time.

    Many Thanks.

    I precisely wished to appreciate you once more. I do not know the things I might have handled without the actual advice revealed by you regarding my industry. It became the horrifying issue in my circumstances, however , taking a look at a skilled style you dealt with the issue made me to cry for fulfillment. I am grateful for the work and as well , expect you are aware of a great job you happen to be carrying out educating most people through the use of a web site. Most likely you’ve never got to know any of us.
