IWSM2018 Bristol 15-20 July Registration

Abstract submission (and poster/talk format)

The abstract submission deadline is now closed. There were are large number of high quality submissions and the scientific committee had a difficult task in selecting which to accept as talks for the limited number of slots available. However, you should now have received a decision email on your submitted abstract. The deadline for submitting final abstract versions for inclusion in the workshop proceedings was 21st May 2108. The workshop language is english.

The poster format guidelines for the conference are that posters should be in portrait format, and between A1 and A0 paper size (obviously smaller is not forbidden, but is probably not a good idea).

Slides for talks should be in stand alone pdf format (so if you use powerpoint, export the presentation to pdf). Please try out your pdf file on a computer other than the one you prepared it on in advance of the workshop. Please bring your presentation on a usb stick for uploading to the workshop computer.
