Format of Presentation
There will be two formats for paper presentation at the ICoMCS2 conference: Speed Papers and Regular Papers. While you are asked which kind of paper you would prefer to present, the conference organisers will determine the presentation mode, according to time-tabling and appropriate grouping. Submissions from students through to established researchers are encouraged.
Symposia consisting of a set of 4 papers with a specific theme are invited. If you wish to propose and organise a symposium, the symposium organisor should submit a symposium abstract indicating the theme, names of the four presenters, and individual paper titles. Authors of papers in the proposed symposium may then submit their abstract or full paper individually, and in the usual way.
To apply to present at the conference (regardless of presentation format), please submit a 150 to 300 word abstract or a 4 page full paper (in accordance with the full-paper template) and include three keywords categorizing your paper, starting with the most relevant one. Please provide a list of technical requirements for your presentation. We cannot guarantee the supply of all technical resources, but will notify you in advance of any problems. Performance item submissions need to be particularly aware of technical and space constraints that may be imposed beyond our control.
Abstracts/full-papers must be received by July 13 in order to be considered. Submissions will then be assessed and if accepted, placed into either a Regular or Speed Paper slot. Symposia abstracts will be processed in a similar way.

These papers are to be presented in 15 to 20 minutes, with 3 to 7 minutes for questions. This is a more traditional mode of conference presentation. If performance or installation, no more than 10 minutes of the work is to be performed. The rest of the time is to be used for discussion and description of the performance or installation.
These papers are presented in 4 minutes blocks with groups of 3 to 7 speakers in each session. These presentations are followed by a question period of 10 to 15 minutes. Speed papers must be presented on a powerpoint template consisting of four slides (the template for which can be found here http://www.hcsnet.edu.au/summerfest06/speedpapers) and be submitted two weeks prior to the conference. The audience will be given a copy of your slides and will be invited to provide written feedback. At the end of your session the feedback forms will be collected, collated and returned to you.
Your paper will be assessed by two peer reviewers. Papers which are accepted and for which at least one author has registered by the registration deadline will be included in the conference proceedings.
