The papers/proposals should be between 3000 and 4000 words. They should examine and address one or several conference topics. Papers should include background description of the topic and its importance, how the topic is relevant to the conference themes, review of research and work done in the country, what are the lessons learned, what is still needed to be done and why, how can young women leaders in the Gulf country be involved, what is the action plan. 10–15 papers will be selected and successful applicants will be awarded a 3-day travel grant to Beirut, Lebanon, to attend and present their work (November 28–30, 2010).
