Deadline for submissions: 15 March 2023
Notification of acceptance: 15 April 2023
Participants are invited to submit abstracts of up to 500 words for international peer review. They should be written in English and provided as a Word file using this template. A brief biographical note (max. 100 words) should also be provided at the end of the abstract. Each author, either as sole author or co-author, may only submit one paper proposal; each paper must be an original contribution that has not been published or presented before.
A selection of high-quality submissions will be accepted for presentation at the symposium. We ask all authors to indicate whether they would prefer a paper or poster presentation, but final decision regarding the presentation slots will rest with the organisers.
When submitting authors are also asked to indicate their interest to submit a full paper after the conference. These papers will pass through an additional reviewing process and will be published in the Proceedings Series of the Belgian Royal Academy for Overseas Sciences. The decision as to which papers will be published will rest with the editors whose decision will be final.
