Submissions:

Manage your submission via ConfTool.

Full papers and all abstracts should be submitted on-line by the deadline of 31st January 2019. Please visit our website at http://www.isl21.org and register for full details and instructions. The corresponding author should be the one to upload the documents. If you are unable to use the on-line system, please contact the Symposium Administration by e-mail: isl21@nottingham.ac.uk

If the paper is to be considered for the PhD award, this must also be indicated at the time of initial submission. Failure to do so will result in the paper not being considered for the award.

Papers and abstracts will only be accepted for review on the condition that the manuscript has not been copyrighted, published, presented or accepted for presentation at a professional meeting and is not currently under review for presentation at another professional meeting.

Authors must register for, and attend, the Symposium to present the paper if it is accepted.

All accepted papers will be published in the Symposium Proceedings, provided completed papers are received by the appropriate deadline and conform to the format, length requirements and within the layout guidelines (www.ISL21.org).

Deadlines: 

Full Paper/Abstract  Deadline: 31st January 2019

Final deadline for revised full and working papers: 8th May 2019

The decision regarding acceptance, and for reviewers feedback to be given to full papers, will be made by the end of mid-March 2019.

Two types of submissions are requested:

Full papers: The complete paper (including abstract) is submitted by 31st January 2019 and will be subjected to a full peer review process. If accepted, authors will be expected to make changes consistent with the reviewers’ comments before final submission by 8th May 2019.

Working papers: These may represent early stage research ideas or initial findings. Only an abstract is needed for review by 31st January 2019. If accepted, a full paper will be required by 8th May 2019. The full paper will not be peer reviewed.

In both cases, papers must be no more than 8 pages and comply with the formatting style of the conference. Failure to do so may result in the paper being returned to the author or rejected. In the Proceedings, peer reviewed full papers will be with an asterisk on the contents page.
