Author Guidelines

Published conference papers:

Accepted abstracts will appear in the conference proceedings. If you wish to publish a full paper in the proceedings, manuscripts must be submitted by Friday October 19, 2018 and authors must have paid their registration fee by October 26, 2018. Manuscripts must conform to the following formatting and style guide.

Formatting and style:
  • Paragraphs should use 1.5 spacing throughout, with 2.5cm page margins;
  • Main sub-headings should be typed with initial capitals, in bold, aligned  against the left margin. Minor sub-headings should be treated in the same way and italicised. No further levels of headings should be used.

  • All illustrations, tables and figures are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.

  • Type styles should be 12-point font, avoiding over-use of italics, boldface or capitals.

  • Acknowledgements should be given under a final sub-heading immediately preceding the References.

  • Endnotes should be used only in exceptional circumstances. Instead, place explanatory notes parenthetically in the text if required.

  • References should be used sparingly, and should follow the author-date Harvard system.

  • 4000 word limit


Please note: Full papers are not required for the conference but are optional. If a full paper is not submitted for review then the accepted/reviewed abstract will be printed in the conference proceedings. If a full paper is received and accepted after review then the full paper will be printed in the conference proceedings.
