  • All material must be the work of authors listed and appropriately referenced.

Tips to Ensure Acceptance
Although abstract rejection is uncommon, LSP reserves the right to reject any abstract it deems inappropriate. To ensure abstract acceptance,

  1. make sure it fits the scope of the conference;

  2. make sure it highlights something new or interesting to teachers/researchers, etc.; and

  3. make sure it does not exceed the word limit and follows the format.

Abstract Submission Formatting


Please be sure your abstract more or less contains the following prior to submission:

  1. A sentence stating the study’s objective (unless this is provided in the title)

  2. A brief statement of methods, if pertinent

  3. A summary of the results or findings obtained

  4. A statement of conclusion 

Please follow these guidelines when formatting your abstract:

Title and authors

  • Use a short, specific title. The title should be entered in sentence-style capitalization (i.e. Revisiting the political dimensions of Philippine English). Please do not use a period, or place your title in quotes, use bold, or use ALL CAPS.

  • Capitalize initial letters of trade names.

  • Please do not write given or family names, titles, or abstracts in ALL CAPS.

  • The abstract title is limited to 15 words, including spaces.

  • There is no character limit for your authors or author affiliations.


  • The abstract text is limited to 300 words. This limit includes the body of the abstract only. If your abstract exceeds this limit, it will be reviewed critically with respect to its length.

  • Your abstract body should typically not have any spaces, breaks, or include any examples. In other words, it should generally be one  paragraph.

  • Please do not include tables, charts, or other figures.

  • Be sure to proofread your work carefully before submission.

  • Please ensure your abstract and submission details are correct. It will be printed exactly as it appears in the abstract submission system.

Special Formatting
In the event your abstract has examples, kindly go to and type your abstract there. Then, copy the link generated and submit this instead of the paragraph. The link should look like this:
Note that your abstract is a concise summary of what to expect in your paper/workshop and should not include too much details.
