How To Apply
If you are interested in presenting a paper at this conference, please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words to email@example.com by 24th March. Abstracts must be prepared for anonymous review (though please include your name and institutional affiliation in your email).
Selection will be by a two-stage process. In Stage 1, abstracts will be reviewed anonymously, and a shortlist assembled on grounds of quality and fit with the conference theme. In Stage 2, a final selection will be made with the aim of ensuring reasonable diversity with respect to gender, nature and place of home institution, and career stage.
Talks will be around 40 minutes, with a similar amount of time set aside for Q&A. Buildings will be wheelchair accessible, and special dietary needs will be accommodated. If you have questions about any aspect of the conference, please contact the organisers: Michael Garnett (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Chris Mills (C.Mills.email@example.com).
