Abstract submission guidelines and instructions:
Please download this PDF for details on how to use the Oxford Abstracts Submission System to register your details, submit, edit or withdraw an abstract for the National Housing Conference 2017.
All abstracts will be subject to review by a panel of reviewers appointed by the Conference Organising Group. The review panel may contact authors as part of the review process.
Successful submissions will be scheduled into new or existing conference sessions, or scheduled as part of other ancillary activities which may be held in conjunction with the main conference program. Review criteria for abstracts include:
Research related abstracts should refer to research that is complete; whilst abstracts that refer to policy or practice should relate to best practice case studies or innovative developments relating to housing issues.
The final decision regarding successful submissions will be made by the Conference Organising Group, following recommendations received from the panel of reviewers.
The Conference Organising Group reserves the right to allocate abstracts into sessions as they see fit in accordance with the overall program objectives.
