Instructions to authors

The Organizing Committee of the IAPS-Sustainability Network Symposium welcomes the submission of original contributions for presentation at this Symposium. Submissions should be in English language. Papers will be selected through a double blind review process organized by an international scientific committee. First, we ask you to submit an abstract. If your abstract is selected, you will be invited to register in the conference.

We invite the submission of abstracts for all categories/papers by the 15th of April 29th of April of 2021. Abstracts should be sent using the format contained in the website. Please send your abstract according to the instructions of the website.

Abstracts received after this date will not be considered. You will have to submit an abstract if you wish to present a paper; you will not be able to register papers without submitting the abstract first. Papers will be considered only if they are not published or submitted for presentation elsewhere.

Abstracts of proposals should be in line with the general aims of IAPS- Sustainability Network and they should relate to the Symposium main theme.

Each abstract should include:

  • an introduction,
  • theoretical background,
  • methods,
  • results and
  • conclusions.

Please include in your abstract only the relevant information that would allow the committee to easily understand the scope of work and determine its relevance. Preference will be given to those abstracts that provide a concise and thorough summary of the study objectives and results.

 

Please send your abstract according to the instructions of the website. If you have any problem you can e-mail our technical secretariat:
