ABSTRACT GUIDELINES   Presentation Length
Papers selected should be suitable for a 10 minute  presentation with an additional allocation of
5 minutes for questions & answers. Abstracts submitted for oral and poster presentation maybe accepted as a full length oral presentation or as a short oral presentation in the poster session of the program. This will be a 5 minute oral presentation using no more then 8 slides including the title slide.

General Guidelines
The abstract should provide sufficient information to allow the reader to assess fully the aims, methods,
results and implications of the work undertaken. Each submission must be original work that has not been published previously. The abstract should include the following sections:

INTRODUCTION – the purpose of the study and a brief overview of relevant literature/current state of research in the field
METHODS – a short explanation of data collection and processing
RESULTS – presented in the form of text only. Important statistical results (small p values or correlation coefficients) should be included.
DISCUSSION – major findings and conclusions from the work including implications for further research. It is important that methods and results are clearly defined in the abstract; therefore, general statements such as “results will be presented” are not acceptable. When a procedure or method is stated to have “advantages,” those advantages should be defined. Abstracts that simply summarise results without defining objectives and methods are equally undesirable.

Abstracts will be limited to no more than 550 words
