Important information about Research Papers and Posters:
Paper and poster abstracts should be submitted to your Country Coordinator for review; if your country does not have a Country Coordinator, abstracts should be submitted to your Regional Office representative. Find your regional and country page here. If your Country Coordinator is organizing a competition, he/she will be able to provide you with additional details. Participants are responsible for submitting their approved paper and poster abstracts, by 15 June 2014, to the Asia and Pacific Regional Office via email: <firstname.lastname@example.org>. For consistency purposes, we ask all participants to submit their abstracts and papers following the GLE Student Investigation Report Format guidelines. All papers accepted and reviewed by country coordinators or regional office representatives will be printed in the online conference proceedings, available after the event.
Participants are responsible for bringing their own poster; poster pins will be supplied. All participants should bring their presentation to India on a thumb drive; it will be transferred to a conference laptop for collection.
