Session organisers should provide a title and brief abstract (up to 200 words) of the proposed session(s), with an estimate of the number of individual sessions requested. All individual sessions will run for 2 hours and include 6 presentations. All papers will strictly be 20 minutes in duration (15 mins speaking + 5 mins question time). Speakers may only present one paper during the conference, although they may be co-authors on other papers.
