Submission Guidelines

An author may submit at most one single-authored and one co-authored abstract. In the case of joint authorship, one address should be designated for official communication with NWAV ASIA-PACIFIC.

Paper presentations will be given 20 minutes each, with a 5-minute question-and-answer period. Posters will be presented on the evening of Friday, August 3rd, in connection with a reception. Posters are typically a good format for presentations where visual display of tables, graphs, maps, etc. is particularly important.

Abstracts must clearly present a specific thesis statement and include a clear, precise, and detailed description of the topic, the specific research question, relevant prior work, research methods, results, and conclusions. Abstracts should not exceed 300 words, excluding title and references. To preserve anonymity during the review process, author names should not appear anywhere on abstracts. Authors may elect to have their paper abstracts considered for either a paper or poster presentation. (Please note that papers submitted to the Paper Session may be considered for the Poster Session as well.)

All abstracts must be submitted electronically, formatted as Adobe Acrobat PDF files.
