Guidelines for speakers

We invite you to submit abstracts for individual presentations and panel sessions.
 
For individual paper, each paper will be presented individually in 30 minutes timeslots, which include 7- 10 minutes for questions. Empirical and scholarly research from a wide range of disciplines and perspectives are welcome.   Abstracts are solicited on all aspects of research, development and application pertaining to the sub-themes. Individual paper presentations may be grouped into panels with similar papers and will be assigned a panel chair.                                                  
 
Proposals are also invited for panel sessions, consisting of presentations of three to five related papers on a single theme, and will be allocated one to two hours for presentation and discussion. Proposals for panel sessions can be submitted by one individual, including all abstracts for the panel presentation. The proposal shall include the name of the panel convenor, the details of tall presenters and the title and abstract of each presentation.
 
The forum is keen to sponsor papers and sessions that address active research and broad policy agendas relevant to higher education, and includes contributions from all disciplines that offer insights at regional and international levels. Collaborative, international, or multi-disciplinary papers are especially welcome.
