Paper format and submission
We are inviting full paper submissions (four A4 pages, with an additional page for references) for oral or poster presentations and for publication in the Congress proceedings. Authors are strongly encouraged to use the ICPhS Word template here or LaTeX template here provided to produce their papers. Full details of the required paper format is given within these templates. Papers must be submitted in PDF format.

For this Congress, there will be a two stage submission process. Authors must signal their intention to submit a full paper by submitting at least the title and abstract by 4 December 2018. We will be allocating papers to reviewers on the basis of the titles and abstracts beginning on 4 December, so these cannot be changed after this date.

Authors are also encouraged to submit full papers by 4 December, though the submission portal will be open for upload/revision of full papers until 11 December 2018. Reviewing and decisions on acceptance will be done on the basis of the full papers. Please note these are strict deadlines and they will not be extended.

The paper submission portal will open 6 August 2018.

Review process
Submissions will be subject to a double-blind review process based on the full 4 page paper (plus references) submitted. Authors will be notified of decisions re acceptance by 15 February 2019.
