 Abstract Submission

This conference is aimed to create an inclusive forum for exchange of ideas, a progressive hub for professional and academic networking as well as an alternative outlet for publishing your latest works. While full paper submission is optional, prospective presenters first need to submit abstracts, so that the submissions will be considered for the conference. Abstract should consist of background, purpose and potential contributions, data and methodology, results, conclusion and keywords. Abstracts must be submitted in English, as also the full paper.

When uploading your abstract, you will be asked to choose the following options:
