Due to our aim in providing an integrated conference where all
participants can hear all talks, and the potential high interest in this
conference, there is likely to be some competition for oral presentation
slots. Contributors are therefore encouraged to:
1.	target their presentations (and thus abstracts) to be as
accessible as possible to the wide range of participants at the
2.	present a broad picture or synthesis of ideas within a
particular field fitting to the overarching theme of the conference (for
local studies, it would therefore be beneficial for presenters to put
their work firmly in a global context).
3.	keep abstracts within the word limit and to use the format given
4.	to have the abstracts in before the deadline 
The organising committee will review all abstracts the week after the
deadline and select presentations for each of the themed sessions of the
conference to complement the plenary speakers. Oral presentations will
be chosen to give as full range of topics as possible over the
conference. All participants submitting abstracts for an oral
presentation that are not accepted for a talk will be offered to present
as a poster instead.
For all communication on the conference, please use the following
conference email:

We look forward to receiving your abstracts & registration forms and
seeing many of you here in Plymouth in July.
