+ SUBMITTING A PAPER FOR REVIEW
Please note, if you are using Windows Explorer 8 (or an earlier version) you may encounter issues during the registration and paper submission process. Please change your browser to Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox before submitting your paper or registering.
The registration system encourages you to register at the same time as submitting your paper, but it is not essential – you are able to submit a paper without completing the registration process at this time (click the 'abstracts' tab, next to the 'registration' tab).
Papers can be submitted for an oral presentation, poster presentation or both oral and poster. There is a possibility of submitters nominating for an oral presentation but receiving a poster presentation.
For delegates who are preparing posters, please note that the maximum size allowed is: 100cm wide by 120cm deep. Velcro will be available to fix the poster to the boards.
Please read the guide to authors prior to submitting your initial paper. Note that when submitting the initial paper (step one) you will first be asked to provide a "summary" (approx. 100 words) in the text box provided, once you complete this step you will be asked to upload a full paper in '.doc' format for review (.pdf submissions will not be accepted). Note: the Paper Submission web pages refer to the full 4 page "papers" as "abstracts".
Please note, you must be a fully paid up registrant for your paper to be accepted into the final program.
