Final Paper Submission for Review

A copy of the camera-ready paper is to be submitted to your university representative for printing. At this point the postgraduate student must also fill in a registration form (located in the Registration section) and give it to the university representative. There is no registration fee associated with postgraduate students from the participating universities.

The poster must clearly show the title and highlight the issue(s) with the study, some information about the background of the research, the chosen direction and important conclusions. References and acknowledgements should be clearly stated.
