Fukuoka JALT:

How to write a better abstract for JALT2022

Date: Saturday, January 15th, 2022 Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Speaker: Various speakers

Conference presentation proposals for JALT2022 are due February 13th. Here's your chance to learn from seasoned veterans how you can improve your submission. We'll start with analysis of actual submissions and the submission rules, and how to choose the best format for your topic. We'll go over the main "gotchas" that will sink your application immediately, and talk about best practice when it comes to writing. We'll also split up into breakout rooms to do some tasks, such as peer review of your abstracts and brainstorming sessions.

Feel free to bring:

  • a new submission you're working on
  • a submission that was rejected in a previous year
  • your PanSIG 2022 submission, if you hope to revise it for JALT2022

Participants will leave with a better understanding about the vetting process as well as what they can do to increase their chances of getting accepted at an annual JALT International Conference.

The Zoom details will be available on fukuokajalt.org on the day of the event. We will start the Zoom an hour early (5 PM) for an hour of informal discussion and networking.
