Authors Information

Please note that due to an incorrect setting some authors who have submitted their paper through the "submissions" email address, have received an out of office reply which have led some of you to assume the review might be delayed until June 11th. This is not the case and we apologise for the confusion this may have caused. Most of the authors concerned should have been contacted individually.

Paper Submission

Here is a direct
link to the paper submission portal.

Please note that to submit your final paper you should preferably use the login dialogue on the page linked to above, using the login credentials you used to upload and submit your abstract. This should take you to your personal "my submissions" page, where you can complete the submission process of your (final) paper. This ensures your paper is directly entered into the database where your assigned reviewer can access it.

Should you need assistance please contact us through the
submissions e-mail address. If the above submissions process does not work for you, feel free to attach your paper to an email and send it to the submissions email address above.
