All papers must be written in English with a summary of not more than 150 words and should include Key Messages for both the scientists and the practitioners in the audience.

Offered Papers and Posters are limited to 6 pages, including tables, illustrations and references. Invited, "Keynote Papers", specified by Session Organisers, must not exceed 8 pages. Final papers should ideally be presented as even numbers of pages i.e. 2, 4, 6, 8.

Draft Versions of your manuscript should be sent to your designated Session Organiser, who will correspond directly with you. On acceptance of a Final Version, this should be sent, as a Word File (.doc or .docx), to the Proceedings Compiler, Tim Heilbronn, no later than 1 December 2017. This can be e-mailed, or sent on a CD to the address shown below.

Please download these Instructions to Authors. It is essential that you follow the style shown. It is recommended that the "electronic version" of the Specimen Pages is used as a template.
