Submissions must contain a clear statement of aims, methods, results and conclusions for the work reported. Papers will be judged on originality, significance, technical quality, relevance to the conference, and presentation.

Submission of a Paper will imply an undertaking that, should it be accepted, at least one author will register and attend the conference to present the work, and provide a camera-ready version for publication.
