Call for Papers

Each session is 45 minutes after which there will be time for questions. We may also have a limited number of shorter, 20-minute slots available. Please indicate clearly in your submission if you wish to present a 20-minute talk. Presentations will be recorded.

All presentations must be in English.

Selected speakers will get free entry to the conference but will still need to register. We do not in general cover travel and accommodations for speakers, but may be able to do so in limited cases. If you require assistance with funding to be able to attend, please make a note of this in the submission notes field. See our financial disclosure for more details.

The submission deadline is at 23:59. Submitters will be notified before of the committee’s decision.
