The Conference Program Committee reserves the right to accept or reject abstracts. The Committee may also allocate some abstracts as posters - preference for presentations will be given to those who are already registered to attend the conference.

Presenting authors are responsible for the accuracy of the content and spelling as abstracts will be published as submitted, subject to reformatting that may be required by Conference Organisers. You will need to meet your own travel, accommodation and registration expenses, and take responsibility for transport and storage of presentation materials. Accepted abstracts may be published in the Conference Handbook, on the Conference website, and CD-ROM.

Only abstracts submitted online through the conference website will be considered for inclusion in the conference.

Please note that presenting authors must be registered delegates, and pay the registration fee no later than 21 January 2011.
