Call for Papers

The Call for Papers closed on 31 May 2007. See the Programme pages for details of the selected papers.

Notification to Speakers

The Selection Committe received more proposals than there is time for in the Conference Programme. The Committee carefully reviewed all the proposals, with the aim of achieving a mixed programme which will attract a wide audience. This unfortunately led to some excellent proposals being turned down. Emails were sent out on June 13th to all theose who had sent in proposals, telling them whether their proposal had been successful or not.

Presentation materials

An Impress template recommended for use for the conference presentations is available here. If you would like instructions how to load this template into your copy of Impress please click here.

All speakers are required to file a copy of their presentations in .odp and .pdf format with the Conference organisers by September 1st. September 14th (Note: deadline extended). Speakers who fail to do so are liable to lose their slots on the Conference programme. Presentations will be made publicly available on the Conference website.

Why do we ask speakers to file copies of their Conference presentations in advance?

Our Conference is for all the community, including people who cannot attend for financial or other reasons. The people who attend in person are a privileged minority; the conference website is an important resource for everyone. Having presentation material available on the site is almost essential for people who are attending the conference by video link, as it's often very difficult to read what's being projected on the screen. After the conference, your presentation will remain archived here for reference, further enahncing the value of the contribution to the community.

Please note that your session may be streamed as a live broadcast and may be recorded and made available for download from the Conference website.
