Do I add the paper submission authors/affiliations?
A = no, not at this stage. Please simply upload the paper in the template. We will advise you later about these additions.
Who is the Readership:
Please assume that the readership is not from your Country and therefore needs an introductory briefing of where the project/issue is geographically and culturally, so a map/plan of 2 might be beneficial to support your text.
For all Australian co/authored papers: please ensure that, if required, the relevant Human Research Ethics protocol approval is stated, dated and coded, and that this information stated at the bottom of your paper before or after the Reference list. If the paper clearly implicates research scope and activities that would normally require an approval from an Australian university human research ethics committee in accordance with the Australian National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007; rev 2018), and if this information is not stated, the Symposium Scientific Committee will use their discretion to NOT accept the paper and its referee’ing. Please note that this is an Australian co/author requirement, and all non-Australian co/authors should disregard this item.
