While there are no specific requirements or guidelines for submitting an abstract (you may choose your own format, line spacing, font, etc.), the recommendations here below will increase the odds of having your abstract accepted:
  - Abstracts will be selected according to level of quality and relevance;

  - Ensure that your ideas are well thought out and follow a logical, coherent flow;
  - State the issue to be discussed;

  - Interest and intrigue the committee by indicating the innovative aspects of your work that distinguishes it from others;
  - Explain the implications/outcomes: why is what you’ve done important?

Should your abstract be retained for PWC 2017, we encouraged authors also submit their full manuscript for possible publication in J-FOR in accordance with mandatory guidelines, which will be sent to you afterwards at that time. However, acceptance for presentation in PaperWeek does not guarantee acceptance for publication in J-FOR.
