Abstract guidelines and submission

Please note- the call for papers has now closed (Monday 4 July) and we are no longer accepting submissions.

Traditional conference papers will normally be presented in panel sessions with
3 or 4 papers presented in slots of 20 or 15 minutes, followed by 20/30 minutes discussion. In addition to accepting abstract proposals for individual presentations in a panel format, we are interested in proposals using alternative modes of delivery including:

  • Themed/whole panel discussions (similar to the traditional mode of delivery, but a proposal for an entire panel as opposed to an individual paper)
  • Roundtables (proposals to set out the roundtable theme and participants)
  • Posters and creative media
  • Lightning talks

Proposals should be titled clearly and be a maximum of 250 words. Proposals should be submitted in English and include:

  • A title
  • 4-5 key words
  • An indication of your preferred method of delivery
  • The name and email address of all presenters indicating the person for primary correspondence

We are planning for this to be an in-person event however we are mindful that this may not suit everyone. We are developing plans for online participation and will announce further details shortly. Please also indicate whether you intend to participate in person or online.

You should submit abstracts in a Word document attached via email to

The deadline for submission has been extended to Monday 4 July 2022.
