Important Dates

The Society will again be publishing peer-reviewed proceedings for its national conference in 2015. Conference delegates will therefore again have the option either to present non-peer reviewed papers at the conference (as we have become accustomed to in the past, and for which only an abstract submission is required), or to submit full papers for peer-review with the intention of having their papers published in conference proceedings, if accepted for publication. It is a requirement that full papers submitted for review should contain novel material not published or submitted for publication elsewhere (in a journal or in other conference proceedings), and such papers will be subjected to double-blind peer review. There will be no distinction between the oral delivery at the conference of peer-reviewed papers and non-reviewed papers for which only abstracts were screened during the submission process, other than that the former will be included in the conference proceedings after the conference, if accepted.

Prospective delegates are invited to diarise the following important conference-related dates:
