You must submit your paper by 2nd October 2015.

You will need to submit your paper via the Ex Ordo abstract submission system (you will be required to register first)

Please ensure that you have read the Call for Papers page before submitting your abstract.

Preparation of your paper

Before you prepare and write your paper, please ensure you read and follow all the guidelines below, as this will help to avoid possible delays in your submission and review. All papers should be structured as follows:

  • Title
  • Author(s)
  • Affiliation(s)
  • Abstract
  • Introduction
  • Methodology
  • Results
  • Conclusion
  • Acknowledgement
  • References

All submissions will be reviewed by three independent reviewers and refereed by the Programme Committee. Submissions will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Relevance
  • Significance
  • Novelty
  • Technical correctness
  • Experimental/evidential support
  • Clarity of presentation
  • Reference to prior work and publications

You will be asked to include a Practitioner Summary of not more than 80 words when you submit your paper. This is a great chance to explain the importance of your work. Note that this is separate to your paper and can be copied or typed in when you submit. See our advice on marketing your paper by choosing an interesting and concise title and writing a practitioner summary. You will also be asked to choose four keywords. Please ensure that these accurately reflect the content of your paper so that we can allocate reviewers properly.
