All presenters must pay for their place at the conference. This fee covers the conference attendance only, it does not include accommodation. Accommodation must be booked separately. There is one discounted presenter fee per paper (maximum of one discounted presenter fee per presentation, additional presenters pay normal price). This must be paid as soon as you have been invited to present (or before), in order to be part of the programme. Presenters who have not paid their fee prior to the programme going to print will not be included in the programme after the given ‘cut off' date; this will happen automatically.
Submissions which include an element of participatory research during the session, (eg, using conference delegates in your session as part of your research) will not be accepted.
It is anticipated that four to six strands will run simultaneously on each day with papers, workshops, brief communications and symposia running throughout the day. Posters will be presented separately with a dedicated ‘viewing period'. The final programme is compiled as part of the review and selection process and successful submissions are compiled to form coherent themes.
