Abstract submissions are now closed
If your abstract is selected for the conference, you will be sent an email to confirm within six weeks of the closing date. If your abstract is selected, we will invite you to let us know if you need any reasonable adjustments to enable you to present your work and we will endeavour to meet these where possible.
If your abstract is selected, you will need to register for the conference within eight weeks of being notified. Only abstracts from those registered for the conference will be scheduled, if you do not register for the conference within eight weeks of acceptance your abstract will be de-selected. Selected authors in need of financial assistance are welcome to apply for one of our bursaries to cover a proportion of the ticket cost. Note that in the case of applying for bursaries, please apply for any bursaries within two weeks of being notified, and you will be informed of the bursary panel outcome before the eight-week deadline to register.
There are five sessions for research presentations – each representing one of our five conference strands. Each session will vary in length from 1hr 45 minutes to 2 hours. If your abstract is selected for a talk, you will have a slot within one of these sessions and each talk will be approximately 15-20 minutes (depending on the session). We recommend allowing about 12-15 minutes for your presentation and allowing for a few minutes of Q&A at the end of your slot.
The date/time slots for each strand are listed below:
Strand 1: Scientific Research Theory and Pedagogy – Friday 2 August at 16.45
Strand 2: Contemplative, Philosophical, and Spiritual – Saturday 3 August at 11.15
Strand 3: Social, Cultural, and Systemic Approaches – Saturday 3 August at 14.30
Strand 4: Grassroots, Real-world Application, and Innovation – Sunday 4 August at 11.15
Strand 5: Political, Environmental, Global Initiatives – Sunday 4 August at 14.30
- Presentations (delivered as a PowerPoint) are all in-person at the conference, and should be uploaded on our PC for presentation before the beginning of your session. You will receive support for this from our technical staff.
- Your talk may be streamed live online, and recorded.
All posters will be presented in-person at the conference, and the presenting author needs to be registered for the conference. Note there are no options for an online poster. The poster session will be held in the evening of Friday 2 August at 7.30 pm, and you will need to arrive at least 30 minutes before this in order to set-up your poster. We will send you further information with the practical details of setting up your poster before the start of the conference.
Please note that we may move some abstracts or presentations into a different ‘strand’ from the one you submit your abstract under due to the requirements of the conference.
