Extended Abstracts:

Authors are required to prepare an extended abstract of their papers, 700 words (min) to 1200 words (max). All submissions must be made through the Conference Website: http://naturalism.irip.ac.ir. Only abstracts submitted through the electronic system will be considered for reviewing. The submission system requests information about the authors. This information will not be given to the reviewers.

In writing the abstract, please use the standard fonts/formatting (preferably APA 7th edition). It is not required for the authors to submit the full version of their papers. Upon acceptance of the abstracts, authors who are willing to do so can submit their full-length papers.

Submissions (both abstract and paper) should be prepared for double-blind review, i.e., without author names or other identifying material. All abstract/paper submissions will be peer-reviewed and evaluated on the basis of originality, research depth, accuracy and relevance to the main themes of the Conference by the scientific committee.

When an abstract/paper is accepted, at least one of the authors has to register to the Conference and deliver the talk. Failure to do so will lead to rejection of the application to attend the conference.

Upon Acceptance of Your Abstract:

Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by January 15th, 2022.

At this point, selected authors of accepted abstracts will receive instructions on how to prepare and present their papers at the ICNIC Conference. Authors are required to present their work in a scheduled session. The presentation time is approx. 20 minutes followed by a 10-minute Q & A session.

Depending on the official government announcement on the pandemic, authors will be notified of the format of the presentations; as it currently goes, it is most likely that the presentations will be held virtually. The instructions will be provided in due course.

Upon request, IRIP will issue Certificates of Attendance.
