Proposals for a session of three to four contributed papers on a topic, with a session chair, are also welcome. Each contributed paper will be allocated 30 minutes (of which it is expected that 20 minutes would be for the presentation, and 10 minutes for questions and discussion).

- Please ensure that all acknowledgements, references, contributors or sources of information are attributed appropriately in the full paper or extended abstract.
- A biography of the proposed presenter must be provided for all submissions and should be no longer than 250 words.
Criteria used to review proposed presentations will include:

- The decision of the Conference Committee will be final and no further correspondence will be entered into.
- A windows-based PC and data projection facility will be provided for all presenters, together with microphone at the lectern and laser pointer. Presenters may want to consider using a pdf file as this will ensure that all original features of the presentation are preserved.

- The ratio for your Power point or pdf presentation should be 16:9.
- Presenters are requested to bring their presentation with them on a USB drive and present themselves to the AV Technician in the Speakers Preparation Room at least 4 hours prior to the scheduled presentation.
