The International Society for Equitation Science (ISES) wants extracts for its 11th International Equitation Science Conference.
ISES is especially encouraging submissions in: applying equitation science across diverse disciplines; welfare assessment of different training methods and equipment uses; looking for the positives; preference testing and motivation testing relevant to equitation science, but all topics of interest to equitation science will be considered.
Definitive theme subgroupings will be determined after abstract submission is complete. There will also be a separate submission category for theoretical papers and review papers.
Abstract submissions are expected to show recent progress in equitation science, be based on scientifically robust methods and must also be substantially completed. Authors will be expected to confirm the use of appropriate experimental design and statistical analysis, including methods such as power analysis for justifying the use of small sample sizes. The material should not have been previously published in a scientific journal.
Summaries must comprise a clear and detailed title, a main scientific body written in continuous prose, a brief lay person’s paragraph and up to six keywords. There is a 2,500 character limit, including the title, body/text of abstract, and keywords.
Abstracts may be submitted online between Feb 2, and April 1, 2015. Visit the submissions section of the ISES website for detailed guidelines and a link to the online submission service.
