A Conference Proceedings USB is published and one copy is provided for each delegate.

Conference Proceedings will be published in the form of extended abstracts (max 12 pages of A4 text) and one copy will be provided for each delegate. Full written papers that are submitted may be refereed with a view to publication in Insight.

Awards are presented for the best paper in the Proceedings and the best paper by a person in the early stages (first five years) of their career. The winning papers will be selected based on both the quality of the paper and the presentation. A travel and attendance award is also given to a oversees delegate that wishes to attend the conference but is unable to do so due to restricted finances.
