Full paper submission deadline: 01 November 2018


Individuals or groups interested in contributing a paper, poster or organising a thematic working group related to any of the sub-themes of the conference are invited to submit an abstract, outlining the background, purposes, methods and results (possible outcomes). Please note:

- Abstracts must be written in English and the file size should not exceed 1MB.
- Text should be 12-point, in Times New Roman Font, left-justified and single-spaced with one inch margin on all sides.
- Abstracts should be submitted in Microsoft Word format (File name: Author’s Surname_Given Name_Abstract.doc).
- Abstracts should include Title of Paper, Abstract text (maximum 400 words) and 3-5 Keywords.
- Abstract file itself should not include the name or affiliation of the author(s) to facilitate a double-blind peer review process.
- Abstract submissions will only be accepted via the symposium website using the following submission system.

All abstracts will be reviewed by at least two scientific committee members. Presentations will be selected to provide a programme that offers comprehensive
treatment to the issues related to the six symposium sub-themes. Authors will be notified by email of the outcome of their abstract submission. Accepted
authors must register for the symposium as full delegates in order to be included in the programme. Where a paper or poster is jointly written/created, at least
one author is required to register as a full delegate. All abstracts, posters and full papers will be included in a digital conference proceedings and a number of best
papers and posters selected will be invited to be included in a journal special issue and/or an edited book.

Thematic working group sessions

A thematic working group session requires one lead person (organiser) to submit an abstract by the Abstract submission deadline (15 June 2018)
before the other participants. This leader should indicate in the abstract a workshop title, its aim, programme, outcomes and interested participants
with their names and email address. Once the abstract is accepted by the scientific committee, the secretariat will email the participants of the workshop
to submit their own papers or posters to the thematic working group organiser. All participants of thematic working groups (including the organiser) are
required to register as full delegates to attend the conference.

Poster Presentations

The same rigorous review process applies to posters as papers, but the presentation of a poster does not require a full paper submission. Instead, accepted
authors of poster presentations should print and bring their posters to the conference by themselves. The organisers will help affix the poster on boards with
pins provided. Poster dimensions are approximately 2 numbers of A-1 size (594 x 841 mm or 23.4 x 33.1 inches) drawings, with no minimum size and a vertical
or horizontal orientation. The author’s name and the Abstract ID# should be written on the front of the poster. The conference will feature accepted posters in the
exhibit hall on Friday 14 Dec 2018 and Saturday 15 Dec 2018.
