CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Emerging Horizons is a call for AIESEP members to share how our complex and interdisciplinary research is being taken up by all of those people who have a vested interest in physical education (PE), physical activity (PA), health, physical education teacher education (PETE) and sport pedagogy.

While each theme offers a distinct area of interest, we also see each theme offering an opportunity to explore the holistic nature of our work and invites all to consider how their presentations may fit within one or more themes.

1. Oral Presentations

The purpose of an oral presentation is to introduce the audience to the most important and interesting points in your research. A good oral presentation awakens the audience’s interest in the speaker’s subject. If you want to give more information than is possible in an oral presentation, you can prepare a separate PDF handout. Each presenter will be provided with a 15-minute presentation time slot (with 5 minutes for questions). This time could be adjusted depending on the number of final presentations. The scientific committee will provide a chair for the sessions. Spanish and Portuguese presentations will be accepted at the conference but the abstract submissions should be in English AND either Spanish or Portuguese. Oral presentations can be presented live in Chile or pre recorded for virtual participants.

All abstracts  must include the following: :

  • Authors
  • Affiliation
  • Introduction
  • Method
  • Results
  • Conclusion
  • References

Max. 300 words (authors, affiliation and references not included).

The Scientific Committee will evaluate the oral communications and all authors will receive confirmation of acceptance or rejection. In case of acceptance, authors must upload the presentation in PDF format. The PDF must contain: Author & Affiliation, Introduction to the topic, Aims of the project or research, Method Results (contribution to the field), Discussion (Relevance / alignment to themes), & References.

In order to avoid errors, the file of the presentation should be saved with the name of the presenter and the title of the presentation.

2. Poster Presentations

Posters provide a unique opportunity to share a general idea of the sort of research that you are doing. Poster presentation at AIESEP 2023 will be both interactive and uploaded for virtual attendees to review. Oral presentations can be presented live in Chile or pre recorded for virtual participants. In order to assess the poster proposal, all authors must upload an abstract with the following:

  • Authors
  • Affiliation
  • Introduction
  • Method
  • Results
  • Conclusion
  • References

Max. 300 words (authors, affiliation and references not included)

The Scientific Committee will evaluate the posters and authors will receive confirmation of acceptance or rejection.

As the poster sessions are both virtual and interactive presenters should be prepared to discuss and answer questions on their presentations. Further details on the exact date, time and location of your poster presentation will be emailed to you at a later date. There will be a Best Poster Award. A poster should be self‐contained and self‐explanatory, allowing the viewer to proceed on his/her own while the author (you) is free to supplement or discuss particular points raised by the viewer via the comments section. Presentations should be simple and clear and a combination of text and graphics is recommended. Remember that the viewer, not you as in the case of slide presentations, determines the time spent at each poster.

3. Symposia: Related to interdisciplinary and/or cross-national research.

A theme based 90 min session of 3-4 panelists. Delivered live with Q & A and audience engagement in mind. Symposium leader(s)/authors should manage the entire submission, including: the title of the panel presentation, the name(s) and affiliation(s) of all panel participants in the session, an overview of the panel presentation of no more than 300 words, and all single abstracts (300 words).

The symposium overview abstract must include:

  1. Title
  2. Introduction of the topic or context and/or mapping of the literature
  3. Aims of the paper(s) or research questions and/or focus of inquiry
  4. Research findings and/or contributions to the fieldRelevance to AIESEP 2023 theme(s).

Max. 300 words (authors, affiliation and references not included).

All panelist abstracts must include the following: :

  • Authors
  • Affiliation
  • Introduction
  • Method
  • Results
  • Conclusion
  • References
    Max. 300 words (authors, affiliation and references not included).

The purpose of a panel presentation is to introduce the audience to the most pertinent points in your project(s), engage co-panelists and participants in dialogue and debate. If you want to share more information than possible to discuss within a panel discussion, you can prepare a separate handout. The scientific committee will provide a chair for the sessions.

Spanish and Portuguese presentations will be accepted at the conference but the abstract submissions should be in English AND either Spanish or Portuguese. The Scientific Committee will evaluate the panel abstracts and authors will receive confirmation of acceptance or rejection.

4. Pitch & Promote:

An opportunity to pitch your research proposals and receive feedback to pitch it or promote it! This is a blend of the 3 Minute Thesis (3MT®) concept and a pecha kucha presentation. You are encouraged to present your research and its significance in three minutes, with no more than 3 presentation slides. We encourage authors to consolidate their research and discoveries to be presented concisely.  Pitch & promote presentations can be presented live in Chile or pre recorded for virtual participants.


The Scientific Committee will evaluate the Pitch & Promote abstracts and authors will receive confirmation of acceptance or rejection.

 

Abstract Development & Submission Procedure:

AIESEP 2023 invites you to submit an Abstract/Proposal to be considered for presentation in any of the aforementioned presentation types.

How to Submit your Abstract

The abstract submission process can be found on the official 2023 AIESEP International Conference website at www.aiesep2023.com.

Review Process: All submissions will be evaluated through a blind review process. Authors will be notified of a decision on or near March 15th, 2023.

 

Further Considerations

All accepted abstracts have the potential to be published in the AIESEP conference abstracts book. Upon acceptance, a minimum of one author must attend the AIESEP in person or virtual component and deliver the presentation according to the scheduled day and time. Should an author not comply with the requirements, the program chair or conference organizer reserves the right to remove the abstract and/or presentation from the conference schedule and/or conference book of abstracts.

We are eagerly looking forward to receiving papers from all parts of the globe to make this a truly international world conference.
