Oral and Poster Presentations

TSFP accepts contributions for presentation based on at least three reviews of an extended abstract. Submissions selected for oral or poster presentation will then require authors to provide an up to six-page manuscript, along with a one-page abstract. The one-page abstract is posted online as part of the program listing. The up to six-page manuscript is made available electronically to participants at the Symposium, and is subsequently posted on the TSFP web site. The copyright of TSFP manuscripts remains with the authors, who are free to submit their work for publication in an archival journal, citing the TSFP manuscript as preliminary results. Archival journals may also invite selected authors of TSFP manuscripts to submit their work for publication in special issues.

Extended Abstract

Paper selection will be based on at least three independent reviews of extended abstracts. Abstracts should consist of a maximum of two pages (A4 or letter) of text, and, where appropriate, an additional one page (maximum) of figures and tables. Abstracts must clearly summarise the nature and rationale of the proposed work and should contain sample results, major conclusions and possibly a statement about further results that should be included in the final paper. Abstracts should be submitted electronically and uploaded on the Symposium website. When submitting, authors should select a primary and a secondary session topic. This information will be used by the committee to allocate oral presentations to sessions.
