2010. The city of Seoul cherishes its heritage and carefully maintains its historical monuments, royal palaces and temples. In addition, Seoul is a city on the move, constantly revitalizing itself, balancing ultra-modern renewal with careful restoration of its ancient buildings and preservation of the environment. The mountains surrounding Seoul are breathtaking and the Han River flowing through the center of the city offers scenic recreational escapes. Here in Seoul, you will find a harmony of the past and present, history and future, culture, economy and environment. Seoul is a global city that blends the culture of yesterday with the trends of today and the hopes of tomorrow.

IAMURE Standards in the Submission of the Abstract for World Conferences
1. Newness of discovery as your contribution to global knowledge. Of the many things you discovered in your study, decide only three most important information that you happened to know only when you finished the study. Make sure these are captured in your abstract. Your abstract is like the exhibit area, encased in glass in a boutique that shoppers can see samples of your best merchandize collection, so they respond to enter your store, check the items, try them, then buy. Shoppers buy first what is new, nice to look at, comfortable, sets them apart higher than others, affordable and of good quality. Design your abstract from this perspective ” Why should a world scientist take time to read me and listen to me when he knows many things already? What can I tell him that he can quote or cite in his next paper? How can I make him trust me that what I tell him is correct and credible? Can my full paper support everything claim in my abstract when the paper gets published?”

2. Technical requirements in abstract writing.

Title. Base your title on the most important result and not on the scope of the study. Use no more than 12 to 15 words.

Identifying the information. Write your name only. Do not include your degree titles. Do not include your co-authors since the abstract is for presenters only. If your co-author intends to register as a participant, you can include the name. Write your ORCID number. Go to orcid.org to register for your open researcher and contributor ID. This is your permanent lifetime ID as a world researcher whose works are collected and listed in a database shared by CrossRef, Thomson Reuters and Scopus. Write your email address. We prefer your webmail issued by your current employer or university , Example is genarojapos@liceo.edu.ph. If you have none, then write your name in a Gmail account , example is genarojapos@gmail.com. This address will appear in the journal publication as point of contact. Do not use any other alias as email since you are a scientist. Write your preferred organization as your affiliation.

Body parts. Begin with a sentence introduction of your main concepts investigated and their dynamics that gives the reader a peek into your content. Do not begin by stating the objective of the study as most researchers do. Second, state the major purpose or objective of the study. Do not state all objectives, write only one comprehensive sentence. Do not state the purpose as a question, state is as a declarative sentence. Third, state your methods in a sentence that synthesizes how you conducted your research according to the standards of your discipline or field. Fourth, state your most important results, about three only that directly answers your objective. Fifth, state your conclusions. Recommend one item that has international application, otherwise you do not write a recommendation. Do not cite authors in your abstract.

Keywords. Write keywords to contain four parts: discipline/field your study belongs, the concepts you investigated, the method and processes, and the geography of the study -local and continental. These pieces of information are useful for library indexing and web searching.

Quality assurance test. Use a Microsoft word counter if you reached 200 words only. Do not submit shorter or longer abstracts since that will destroy the space allocation in the Book of Abstracts and the final journal publication. Next, use a spelling and grammar checker software to cleanse your writing of errors. Read it aloud to feel your language, grammar, punctuation and other mechanics.

Submission requirements. Attach your photo in jpeg that shows your face and part of your upper formal dress. The photo must present you as a celebrity with nice hair, clean made-up face. World impressions begin with this photo. Use a current photo. Do not submit photo showing you in a graduation gown, or casual wear. It must be something that shows you like the ambassador of your country or royalty of your kingdom. Send  logo of your organization or university and the flag of your country. Send your professional updated curriculum Vitae that show your academic degrees, publications in complete journal bibliographic entries. Go to Google Scholar and Orcid to check your online accessible publications because only these  really matter that define your research productivity and world status as researcher. Do  not list unpublished researches and those published in print only journals. Prefer to select those publications with a digital object identifier. Include  your leadership engagements in research. List your involvement in journal editorial boards and peer review. List your research related awards. List your most important national and international oral presentations. List your research grants. All these are needed as your entry to the research awards. If you have no track record since you just graduated, or you are starting your research career, IAMURE welcomes you to serve as your global platform to start your career in research.

Attach in your submission your bibliographic list as one basis for evaluation by the scientific committee.

We expect to receive abstracts only from researchers who have valid passports, can afford to pay the registration, and are determined to participate. We do not offer fund grants to presenters. We are a serious scientific organization that is ISO certified.

We expect you to publish your work with us since oral presentations alone do not build your research and publication track record. We provide monthly data of world readers to our journals to inform contributors of the countries reading the journals.  Our journals are indexed, cross referenced,  ISO certified, and globally accessible.

   Post submission of abstract. The scientific committee reviews your abstract and sends you the results and instructions for improvement. Guidelines will be issued.
