Submission Guidelines for Contributors
Abstract Submission for Papers/ Poster Presentations
In relevance to the conference themes, the interested contributors are required to submit an abstract of 250 to 300 words. Abstracts should clearly specify the title, the focus and thematic emphasis of the Paper/ Poster presentation; identify the methodology employed, the sources of data from where the findings emerge (wherever applicable); highlight key findings presented as well their implications for theory, policy and practice.

In relevance to the conference themes, the interested contributors are required to submit a proposal or concept note (between 450 and 500 words) for a Symposium (90 minutes session; limited to five presenters, including the session facilitator/ chair). Unlike an individual paper, a Symposium provides a unique opportunity to allow presentation of multiple perspectives and experiences on a particular topic.
