Conference Presentation Guidelines
All oral paper, case study and symposia presentations should be prepared for presentation via powerpoint.
Computer and digital projection equipment will be available for all presentation sessions and delegates are requested to liaise with conference technical support staff, who will be available prior to each paper session, to upload presentations immediately in advance of the start of the session.
In order to respect the individual needs of each presentation there are no formal guidelines: delegates will be expected to develop presentations that are consistent with the content of the accepted abstract and that communicate their work in a clear and effective manner.
Due to the high number of papers accepted for presentation, timing will be strictly controlled by session chairs who will have discretion to determine the detailed conduct of each session. As a general guideline, however, delegates are advised to prepare presentations of a maximum of 12 minutes to allow time for questions and discussion, either at the end of each paper or collectively at the end of each session as determined by session chairs.

Post-Conference Book Guidelines
Guidelines and time schedule for full paper submission
These guidelines are provided for delegates who have had abstracts accepted for presentation at the conference who wish to submit a full paper. Full papers will be peer reviewed to determine a selection to be included in the post-conference book. This book will be the latest in a series published by Hogrefe Publishing. Selected peer reviewed papers in previous books have captured the high quality of the Alexandria and Rome IAPS conferences. The post-conference book from Leipzig is currently in press and will be available at the IAPS 22 Conference in Glasgow.
We would be grateful if delegates could express their interest in submitting a full paper by the end of July 2012.
The deadline for initial full paper submission is 31 October 2012.
Decisions and revision requests will be notified to authors by 31 January 2013.
The deadline for revised paper submission is 31 March 2013.
Please email your full paper
The full papers will be selected on the basis of a peer review process for which the major criteria are:
1. Relevance for the IAPS 22nd Conference themes and congruence with the IAPS mission.
2. Scientific quality with regard to clear underlying theory, information content, method and evaluation.
3. Clear questions, convincing arguments, and good answers
4. Innovative character of the approaches and/or findings and presence of clear policy and practice implications and societal value.
Because of the high number of submissions accepted for conference presentation the selection process will be strongly competitive. Therefore, papers which are not fitting the following format specification criteria will not be considered for publication:
1. At least one of the authors must have registered and attended the conference
2. Each author can submit only one paper, either individually or jointly with others.
3. Submission deadline must be respected
4. Format and extension requirements must be respected
