Conference Submission Categories

Papers of approximately 1500 words excluding references: 

These papers may be conceptual or empirical and should normally report on completed studies in one or more of the suggested track themes, however papers reporting on substantially developed work in progress will also be considered. All full papers will be subject to a double-blind reviewing process. If accepted, authors will normally be required to present in a 30-minute session (20 minutes for presenting the study and 10 minutes for questions) at the conference.


Authors are encouraged to use posters as an alternative means of presenting their research. This may be a more appropriate format for reporting on less developed work in progress.
