Virtual Conference Dates

As a result of the disruption to travel caused by Covid-19, we have changed our international academic conference to take place online instead of face to face this year. The conference dates remain the same - August 27 and August 28 - as these are the dates people have allocated to attend the conference. We expect most participants will still commit their time during this window to participate in the conference and have discussions with fellow researchers around the world.

Submission details

Although preference will be given to full papers, abstracts of 200-500 words will also be considered. Please email your papers and abstracts before August 21, 2020.


and or

Not more than 2 papers will be accepted from any author.

Information for Authors of Accepted Papers

All accepted papers at the virtual conference will be presented using a pre-recorded video followed by an interactive online discussion.

All accepted papers (poster, spotlight, long talk) will need to create a 5-minute video that will be used during the virtual poster session.

In addition, papers accepted as a long-talk should create a 10-minute video.

Each video should use a set of slides, and should be timed carefully to not exceed the time allocation. The slides should be in widescreen format (16:9), and can be created in any presentation software that allows you to export to PDF (e.g., PowerPoint, Keynote, Prezi, etc).

Conference registration fees

The registration fee for the attendance of both days has been substantially reduced to £50 for students and £75 for non-students. This reflects the virtual nature of attendance. For those who have already registered, we have automatically refunded the remainder of the registration fee, so that you will only pay the new reduced rate.

If the same participants would like to join again on the 9-10th of September 2021 (face to face conference in London) participants' fees will reduce to £200.

The fee includes:

Conference file, copy of conference program, certificate of presentation, publication of an accepted paper in the online conference proceedings.

Cancellation: A refund will be given for cancellations received before Aug 25, 2020. Cancellation fee is £25.

The organiser reserves the right to cancel the conference in case of natural disaster, strike, government regulation or any other unpredictable event making it impossible to hold the conference. If a conference has to be cancelled, the organiser will refund full registration fee paid.
