Presentation Guidelines

Presentation Types:-

Oral Presentation:
In this category, presenters are given 15-20 minutes to present their work orally. An additional 5-10 minutes will then be added for Q&A. Unless given permission by the event committee, all presentations must be conducted in English.

Each session will be moderated by a session chair who will be appointed by the organizers.

For the benefit of the audience, the presentation should at least cover the following areas:

The objective/purpose/rationale of the study
Background/overview of the topic
Theoretical framework
Research design and methodology
Overview of findings and results
Please be prepared with enough material to fill the time allocated to you. The use of visual aids (e.g., MS Powerpoint or Prezi) is compulsory.

Poster Presentation:

This event also accepts posters as an alternative to oral presentations. A special viewing and Q&A session will be held for presenters who had opted to use posters. Authors are expected to be present to answer questions or provide explanations to visitors during the session. All posters must come in A0 size i.e., 841mm x 1189 (portrait orientation). Please notify the event secretariat as early as possible if you need to use a different size or orientation to avoid any conference day difficulties.

Poster presentations are subject to the availability of presentation slots and physical space at the venue.

Virtual Presentation:

In this category, presenters are given 15-20 minutes to present their work live via Zoom Meetings OR pre-recorded presentations. Five minutes will be given to each presenter as preparation before their session. An additional 5 minutes will also be allocated for Q&A. at the end. Unless permitted by the event committee, all presentations must be conducted in English.
Each session will be moderated by a session chair who will be appointed by the organizers.
You are still required to submit an abstract, and one author must pay the registration fee. At the end of the conference, you will receive a presentation certificate and the digital book of abstracts.

Panel Discussion:

To give your presentation in our panel discussion session, please submit your proposal/abstract with a minimum of 5 delegates (one author and four co-authors). Once the conference committee officially accepts your project, each panel member has to register individually for the conference.
We will allocate one hour thirty minutes slot for your panel discussion where each registered member will give a maximum 10 minutes speech, and the whole panel will answer the questions raised by the audience. The primary author will chair the panel session discussion and conclude the session with his/her concluding remarks.

Some Presentation Tips (Structure):

The following is a sequence commonly used to present research findings:
It is essential to note that this is merely a suggestion and should only serve as a general guideline for presenters in delivering their presentations. Presenters are encouraged to rename, remove, or add to this structure to suit their research needs.
Research Questions / Hypotheses

Abstract Review and Selection Criteria:

An Abstract Review Committee will evaluate all submissions and accepted based upon the following criteria:
Relevance and significance of topic.
Applicability of innovative/leading or best practice solutions to current issues you address

Paper Submission Guidelines

In the first instance, we require everyone who wishes to submit their work to the conference to submit an abstract describing the proposed paper, work in progress, presentation, etc. The abstract submission form will guide you through the process but we recommend you read the call for papers first to ensure you select the correct track and submission type.

Submitting an Abstract

The maximum word limit for the abstract is 150-350 words.
Extended Abstract (800-1500 words) Should include Introduction, Objectives, Methodology, Results, Discussion/Conclusion, and Recommendations with related references to be included in the proceedings of the EPRF Conference..

We encourage you to send informative abstract (complete abstract) which is a compendious summary of a paper’s substance including its background, purpose, methodology, results, and conclusion.

Your submission should be submitted in English and please send in a brief biography together with the Abstract.

Submitting a Paper

Prospective authors are invited to submit full text papers including abstract, keywords, introduction, methodology, result description, tables, figures, and references.

Before submitting your paper, please ensure that it has been carefully read for typographical and grammatical errors. If English is not your first language, have your paper proof-read by an English speaking person.

Papers will be returned if the standard of English is not considered to be good enough for publication.

All submitted articles should report original, previously unpublished research results, experimental or theoretical.

Articles submitted to the Conference should meet these criteria and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
