Full papers must contain the following:

Full papers must adhere to 6 Page limit as indicated in template; WIP will be 2 pages. If a submission is co-authored, the primary recipient of the correspondence should be clearly indicated. An oral presentation of 15 minutes and 5 minutes of questions will be allowed to successful students at the conference.

Viruses

All documentation received will be checked for viruses. However, it is the responsibility of the author to ensure that documents are free of viruses. Any document that is infected with a virus and cannot be recovered will be returned to the author, with a request that a clean copy be resubmitted.
