SMAANZ 2013 Call for Papers & Sessions

Call for Papers

SMAANZ invites individuals to submit a variety of abstract types, including empirical, methodological, conceptual, and teaching related abstracts. Submissions are due 14 June, 2013.

Acceptance will be confirmed by 12 July, 2013. Completed research or research in progress is acceptable. We welcome submissions to the main programme from Post- Graduate research students.

Submission guidelines

Presentations may be proposed as either:

  • A 20 minute oral presentation (including questions), or
  • A 70 minute roundtable, forum or workshop. Authors can use these sessions to spend more time elaborating on their research or engaging in a discussion-based presentation. Please note, one abstract is required for this format, which will differ from the ‘session proposals’ which require 4 papers.

Your abstract should provide a background statement, rationale for the presentation, presentation objectives, outline of methodology, results, findings, conclusions and application to practice. No acknowledgements, figures or references should be included.

Underline the author(s) making the presentation. This author will be considered the key person for all contact about the abstract. Include all co-authors names, affiliations and addresses for general correspondence (including email address) above the abstract text and below the title.
