Submissions should indicate the proposed presentation format which may be:

A symposium will take the form of an integrated series of three papers around a clearly identified theme. The symposium chair should submit the abstracts for all presenters, as well as an additional 200 word statement of (a) the aims of the symposium; (b) the relationship of the topic to the conference themes; (c) the relevance to the conference audience; (d) the expertise / viewpoints represented by presenters. Symposia should be designed to run for the same length of time as three individual oral presentations, comprising 20 minute presentation and 5 minutes for questions (75 minutes in total).

2. Individual Oral Paper

Individual oral papers will be related to one of the conference themes and will be presented in the context of recent research and / or policy.  Oral papers may report on work using a range of methodologies.  Oral papers will have 25 minutes allowed in the conference program (20 minutes: presentation; 5 minutes: questions).

3. Posters

Posters are suitable for shorter communications, and for work-in-progress.  They will be scheduled around common themes to facilitate networking and discussion between presenters and audience members and will be scheduled during 30 minute morning and afternoon tea timeslots.

Notification of outcome of abstract submission will be sent to the submitting author 6th September 2013.  All abstracts of papers included in the final program will be included in full in the conference program.
