In addition, please remember to indicate your publication preference. The author of each accepted paper will present it at the conference. Presenters accepted for the edited conference volume must submit a complete version of the paper by the end of 2018. Presenters accepted for consideration in the special issue must submit a complete version of the paper for peer-review by the end of July 2018. A formal paper will not be required of presenters who do not wish to publish in either outlet.

Session proposals. Each session should consist of 4 to 5 papers. When submitting your session you will be asked to provide a brief session description (150 words or fewer) followed by the request to submit individual abstracts for each session paper (see instructions for abstract submissions above).
