Call for Abstracts

Submissions have now closed. We look forward to seeing you in Perth.

 

TASA invites authors to submit abstracts for consideration for presentation at the 2017 conference. Papers are welcomed that engage with the conference theme of ‘Belonging in a Mobile World’, as well as other papers submitted to the 28 TASA thematic groups.

Submissions of abstracts and written conference papers (for Honours, Graduate and Postgraduate students, see below) were due by the extended deadline of June 16, 2017.

Please note that all presenters must be registered by October 10 to be included in the conference programme.

Abstracts are required for all presentations (i.e. even if you are submitting a paper). From 2015 onward TASA only accepts written conference papers from Honours, Graduate and Postgraduate students. These papers will be reviewed and if accepted included in the conference proceedings (please note, it is not compulsory for Honours, Graduate and Postgraduate students to submit a paper. This cohort can submit an abstract only and will be allocated the same presentation length as peers who have submitted a paper. The difference being, those students who have submitted a paper will have it reviewed and published in the proceedings). Conference papers for refereeing will be accepted from non-students if a delegate cannot access institutional support or funding to attend otherwise. If this applies to you, please contact Sally in the TASA Office for a ‘full paper submission’ code before submitting your paper. Papers for refereeing are due by the extended deadline of June 16 2017. Delegates can be listed as a sole or lead author on one presentation only and may be listed as a co-author on one additional paper. All abstracts (and papers) will be submitted for a review process with notification of results sent via email by late July 2017. Accepted abstracts and papers will be allocated 15 minutes presentation time and 5 minutes for questions. Please note that all presenters must be registered by October 10 to be included in the conference programme.
