Abstract submission

Abstracts of 400 to 600 words (excluding references) are invited for peer review.

Abstracts should clearly state the presentation objectives and findings, and explicitly identify which of the key themes that the presentation fits.

The abstract should include: title, keywords, introduction, method, findings/discussion and conclusion. Inspiring conference posters are also requested from students and other researchers.

Please use Calibri font size 11 and save the document in Microsoft Word format using the family and first name of the presenter (eg. Taylor, Steve).  If supplying references, please include a maximum of five.

We welcome all forms of representation at the event, from performance (poetry, song, dance, video, or whatever) to more traditional research papers and posters, and everything in-between.

All abstracts should be submitted to [email protected] using this Abstract template by 31st March 2023.


Early notification of acceptance is also available upon request. Simply email this request to [email protected]

Note: All accepted abstracts will be published in the conference book of abstracts, and will be available on the ATRA and conference web pages. There is also the possibility for some papers to be considered for post-conference publication – a special issue of the Journal of Outdoor Recreation and Tourism is being explored.
