Abstract Submissions

Conference 1-2 December | Workshops 30 November

Submission Requirements

The 2017 conference will be held at the University of Sydney from the 1-2 December, 2017.

Presentations and Submission

Three presentation formats will be run:

  • Individual papers: 20 minutes including question time. Paper abstracts should be less than 150 words.
  • Symposia: consisting of 3 to 5 papers to be presented within 1 hour and 40 minutes including question time. Symposia abstracts should provide an overall abstract (<150 words) as well as abstracts for each paper presented in the symposia (<150 words for each). If a discussant is included in the symposia, no paper abstract is required for the discussant.
  • Electronic Poster Sessions: Posters will be presented in dedicated sessions. Participants will provide one Powerpoint slide that will be displayed on a poster-sized screen (so no need to print out your poster!).



All abstracts and papers will be submitted to peer-review. Abstract review will consider the suitability of the proposed paper for inclusion in the conference, while the purpose of the full paper review is to provide feedback regarding quality and possible improvements prior to publication.
