Abstract review process

- Accuracy and completion of all required information

- Clarity and relevance of topic

- Originality

- Alignment with conference theme and the IOL definition of outdoor learning About Outdoor Learning (outdoor-learning.org)

 

Authors will be notified by Friday 15th December if their submission has been accepted.

All accepted abstracts will be contained within our Book of Abstracts available after the conference.

Conference presentation

Presenters are required to create a physical poster that will be displayed at the conference venue on the day. Posters are requested to be A0 size and creativity is encouraged. For example, links to a short, pre-recorded presentation or relevant video could be embedded in the poster (e.g. QR code). 

 

Authors must be available on the conference day for delegates to contact and answer questions.  Authors will need to consent to their presentations being shared on the conference platform (and if any delegates share more widely e.g. on social media). 

 

Authors will be eligible to attend the conference free of charge but are required to register for the conference following accepting to present.  If an author does not book their conference ticket their abstract will be removed from the book of abstracts/ conference information.
