Workshop Abstract Submissions
Guidelines and information
Abstracts presentations for the 2014 World Water Week workshops are welcome from experts and actors of all different disciplines. Submission should be made before January 19.
Author participation in the World Water Week workshops
At least one author of each selected abstract must register and attend the conference. To present in one of the workshops, authors must meet their own expenses (registration fee, travel, accommodation, etc.) to attend World Water Week. All abstracts selected by the Scientific Programme Committee will be included in an Abstract Volume to be available
onsite in Stockholm and published online at the World Water Week's website.
Prospective authors are encouraged to submit an abstract in English for review by the Scientific Programme Committee. The abstract should be text only (no graphics) and follow the format below:
- Five keywords
- Introduction and objectives - A short background of the topic (up to 100 words)
- Methodology approach - Description and discussion of the approach of the study (up to 100 words)
- Analysis, results, conclusions and recommendation - clear and understandable statements on which we can assess the value added of the proposed abstract (up to 300 words)
The author must identify the workshop (from those listed further down) in which the abstract would be presented. Abstracts which do not adhere to the following requirements will not be considered.
The abstracts will be evaluated and accepted on the basis of their relevance as well as their scientific quality. The Scientific Programme Committee will grade the abstracts against the following criteria:
- How the abstract advances knowledge of and/or innovation within the subject
- The scientific quality and originality of the subject treatment
- The practical applications of the paper's content
- The capacity of which the procedures or practices described can be replicated
An abstract can be submitted for an oral presentation or as an electronic poster, which will be displayed on interactive screens in the exhibition hall.
