Abstract submissions

To submit an abstract please complete the online submission form below. This should be completed by the lead presenting author. Once you click ‘finish’ your abstract will be sent to the organising committee for consideration. Successfully submissions will be allocated a 20-minute presentation slot, so you should plan to speak for 15 minutes and allow 5 minutes for comments and questions. 

If the number of abstracts submitted is more than can be accommodated using the conventional format of presentation then we may include some roundtable sessions. If this is necessary then similar papers will be grouped together.
