Submitting a full paper

Post-deadline papers are your opportunity to showcase your very latest research in an international forum, with a shorter period than usual between submission and publication.

Papers should focus on real business case studies/scenarios, innovative tools and techniques and report on work completed or nearing final stages, or efforts that have concluded with an important outcome of interest.

Sales pitches will be rejected. The working language of the conference is English.

Please note that the page limit is five pages including references and graphs and you can find the paper template below.

To submit your full paper or poster please log on to your Oxford Abstracts account and upload your document in the same way you uploaded your abstract/ poster.
