Abstracts and papers

Abstracts have been reviewed, and authors will be notified of acceptance during the week commencing 13 November 2017. Full draft manuscripts must be in the Protections 2018 paper template and be submitted via the website. They are due on 5 January 2018. Login instructions will be sent to authors on acceptance of their paper. Please get in touch if you are having problems accessing the paper submission area.

The author guarantees that the paper is an original work, has not been published previously, is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that any necessary permissions to quote from another source or include graphics or images has been obtained. Further, the author declares that any person named as co-author of the contribution is aware of the fact and has agreed to being so named.

The Protections 2018 papers will be peer-reviewed; all accepted papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings. The Proceedings will be published electronically, with an associated ISBN, and each paper will be assigned a DOI number and published in an online, open access repository. 

Failure to present the paper at the conference will result in withdrawal of the paper from the published Proceedings. The program distributed at the Conference may contain your paper, but that is not the official publication and cannot be cited in other literature unless it has been presented. Please be sure to attend and orally present your paper or have a co-author do so.
