A suggested structure for the papers is:
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

There are no requirements to the size of the paper.

Presentations during the conference will have a duration of 10-20 minutes (depending on the number of presenters in the panel). There will be facilities for the use of PowerPoint or other projections.

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 images.

If you have any questions feel free to send us an email.
