Paper Style
The conference accepts research driven, practice reflection and theoretical papers. Papers should follow a simple structure, namely;
1.      Statement of the purpose of the paper, the research question this issued to be reflected upon
2.      Background, context setting and/or literature review section
3.      Description of  research methodology
4.      Presentation of results or description of practices reviewed
5.      Analysis of results or practices
6.      Conclusions draws
7.      Recommendation for future research or action
8.      Bibliography

The size of the paper is up to the submitter but generally about 6000 to 8000 words.

Papers do not need to be verbally presented in the conference, rather authors should give a short presentation derived from their papers and be prepared to discuss their work along with that of others presented on their panel.
PowerPoint slides are allowed, (bring your presentation on a USB stick) but do remember that many people are listening and reading in the second language, so keep the use of text to a minimum and make good use of photography graphics, graphs and tables.
