Types of Proposals

All submissions are subject to a peer review process.
Proposals are invited for:

Individual Papers
Each paper accepted for individual presentation will be allocated a minimum of 30 minutes for presentation and discussion.

Discussion Workshops
If the number of abstract submissions is as high as in recent years contributors may be invited to present their work, along with other contributors, in the format of a discussion workshop. These workshops will not offer the opportunity for full individual presentations of papers, but will provide greater time for discussion of papers submitted in advance on related themes.

These provide the opportunities for presentation of related papers on a single theme; the minimum number is 4 and a maximum is 6 papers per symposium. Symposia submissions can be made by one individual and all papers can be submitted together. Alternatively, a planned symposium can be set up and contributors may then add their papers individually using the online submission system. Proposals must state clearly the rationale for the theme, the names of the convenor and/or the chair of the symposium, a discussant, if appropriate; the names and details of all participating presenters plus the title of each presentation planned. The symposium proposal should include an abstract and a paper for each presentation.

Poster Sessions
These provide the opportunity for researchers to present their work visually in the format of a wall poster. Poster displays will be on show throughout the Conference and specific times will be allocated in the Conference programme when poster presenters should be with their posters and delegates invited to engage in dialogue and informal exchange. Abstract proposals should contain a title, originator(s), presenter(s), contact details and a description of the research work undertaken.

Posters will be displayed on 6 foot by 4 foot poster board.

We recommend that poster presenters look at the guidelines set out at:
