Proposals for special sessions are welcome.

IMPORTANT
- All submissions will be adjudicated.
- The conference language is English.
- Expected format of the conference – at this stage it is not certain whether the conference will be held live and in person, or virtual, or in a hybrid format. In the case of a virtual/hybrid conference, presenters will be expected to pre-record their presentations and submit their recordings prior to the conference.

DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSION
Please submit abstracts to reach AFRILEX before 28 February 2022.

ABSTRACT FORMAT
Abstracts should be formatted according to the template (see next page), and should be between 600 and 800 words long for adjudicators to make informed judgements on the central argument of the paper, especially given that conference proceedings are not published. Abstracts should contain the following elements: a central argument, methodology, and some (preliminary) conclusions. All citations should be accounted for in a list of references. Submissions that do not comply with these requirements will unfortunately be rejected.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION
Abstracts should be sent by e-mail to ahdpsun.ac.za

PROCESS AND PROCEDURES
Receipt of abstracts will be acknowledged and feedback will be given to authors as soon as the abstracts are received back from the adjudicators. Abstracts of accepted papers will be distributed during the conference. MS PowerPoint Presentation facilities will be available. As a backup, presenters are invited to e-mail their presentation to the organiser ahead of the conference.

PRESENTERS PLEASE NOTE
It is compulsory for presenters of papers and special sessions to register before 20 May 2022.
