All full paper /abstract submissions will be peer-reviewed and evaluated, based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to the conference, contributions and readability. One Best Presentation Award for each subject area will be announced at the end of the event.

All the accepted papers of GCHAES – 2018 will be published in the online conference proceedings, and will include a valid International ISBN number. In addition, the proceedings will be indexed with other major authorities. A hardcopy of the Abstract Booklet will be given to every author during the conference.

English is the official language of the conference. We welcome paper / abstract submissions. Prospective authors are invited to submit full (and original research) papers or abstracts (which is NOT submitted or published or under consideration anywhere in other conferences/journal) in electronic (i.e., DOC) format along with the contact information.

Best Paper Awards

GAHLS recognises outstanding contributions to research. There are four Best Papers awards for four streams. Best Papers are judged both on the merits of the written document and on the quality of their presentation at the conference. The awards serve to acknowledge the authors who receive them as leading researchers in Health, Life Sciences, Agriculture and Environmental Sciences. The awards also provide an incentive to authors to produce high-quality papers and present them in a lucid and compelling manner.

GAHLS Best Paper Award recipients are selected through a two-prong process. The first step is a review of the full-length papers accepted for the conference. Review committee members of the conference rank these papers according to quality, relevance and originality, to determine the finalists for each award category. While selection as a finalist for an GAHLS Best Paper Award is a notable achievement in itself, winners are then chosen from the finalists, according to the quality of their presentations.

Role of a Session Chair

  1. Introduction

    At the start of the session, briefly introduce yourself and explain the timing system to the audience, and as often during the session as you think necessary.

  2. Start on Time

    Start the session on time - announce the first presenter and the name of the paper, and start the timer.

  3. Check the Microphone

    If a microphone has been provided, then please ensure that this is working.

  4. Stick to the Schedule

    Please adhere to the time schedule listed in the schedule so that simultaneous sessions are as closely synchronized as possible. Many attendees move from session to session in order to hear specific presentations.

  5. Allotted Times

    The normal allotted time for every presentation is 20 minutes (15 minutes to present; 5 minutes for Q & A). During the 15 minutes presentation time, after the first 12 minutes there will be one bell just to alert the presenter that only three minutes are left and then after 15 minutes the final bell will be rung.

    Presenters must be asked to stop when their allotted time is up in a courteous but firm manner. Keep in mind that the session must end on time, and that the last speaker has just as much right to an audience as does the first speaker.

  6. Absent Presenter(s)

    Should a presenter fail to appear, call the next presenter and so on.

  7. Session Problems

    If any problems arise that you are unable to handle while continuing to chair the session, either go, or immediately send, someone to the registration desk to alert the Meetings Manager of the problem.
