Submission: Please submit your paper or extended abstract through the online submission form at https://editorialexpress.com/conference/uea2018/.
Potential presenters are requested to submit only one paper each. However we will now also allow participants to suggest a grouping of submitted papers into complete 4-paper sessions via email (email@example.com), and we will give complete sessions a weak preference. You will thus have an opportunity to network with colleagues and shape your session in the way you find most appealing. Papers in complete sessions will still be vetted individually as the scientific committee reserves the right to regroup papers with other sessions. We do accept the submission of extended abstracts. However, all else equal, preference will be given to completed papers. You will be notified by May 21, 2018 whether your paper is accepted.
Submission Deadline: April 15, 2018.
UEA Student Prize: If you are currently a full-time PhD student and would like your paper to be considered for the UEA Student Prize, please choose the area "Prize for Best Student Paper" when submitting your paper. A paper is eligible only if all (co-)authors are full-time PhD students at the submission deadline. A shortlist of student papers will be presented in special prize sessions. The award winner will be chosen by a panel set by the UEA and the prize will be awarded at the meeting.
