Why Textiles and Life 2?
Everyone comes into contact with textiles everyday. So, whatever aspect of textiles you are studying –
Please come and share your research with us whether it be design orientated, technology driven or business related.
You will deliver your work to an impartial and non- judgmental audience which will help improve your confidence and prepare you for the serious scrutiny of a viva voce examination.
The preparation process will be the same as for any major conference.
You will need to submit an abstract of your proposed paper (no more than 300 words) by Friday 17th May 2019.
An experienced panel will consider your abstract and will inform you within 6 weeks of the submission date if your paper has been accepted for oral presentation or poster display. If you have not heard anything within 8 weeks of the submission date it is unlikely that your abstract has been successful*.
If your abstract is accepted for oral presentation you will need to submit the complete written paper approximately 12 weeks later ( firm dates to be given in due course). Should you fail to provide the full text your presentation slot will be assigned to someone else. Closer to the conference you will be asked to forward your PowerPoint presentation so it can be uploaded to equipment at the conference venue.
If your abstract is accepted for poster presentation you will need to provide a digital copy of your work approximately 3 weeks before the conference date. You will be responsible for your own printing for display – information on how to prepare Poster Presentations will be forwarded later.
All presenters will be required to register as delegates.
Copies of full papers and posters will be presented to registered delegates on pen drives.
What to do next: Please prepare your 300 word abstract and forward it to email@example.com by noon on Friday 17th May 2019
