Call for Papers

BSPS Annual Conference 2018


Submissions should be made online by midnight on Tuesday 24 April 2018.

A short abstract of up to 250 words is required, which should cover research question, methods, data, preliminary results & potential applications. Extended abstracts can be sent separately & are optional, but will help in the final selection of papers: up to 4 double-spaced A4 sheets in PDF format only may be emailed to pic [at] with ‘BSPS extended abstract’ and the intended strand or session in the title line. Extended abstracts are not a substitute for formal online submissions: this process should still be completed. Strand or session organizers may request further details of a submission before final decisions are made. Short abstracts will appear on the Conference website. Extended abstracts are for information purposes only. 

Choose an appropriate strand or session and submit online at: 

If you are unable to submit online, please contact pic [at] for alternative arrangements. 

Oral & poster submissions are given equal weight. Final decisions on papers & posters accepted for presentation will be emailed to submitting authors by mid-May. 

In addition to strands and sessions which solicit submissions, there will also be a couple of closed sessions, for which submissions are not being sought, plus training sessions: these will be advised on the preliminary timetable, when published. Offers of training sessions would also be very welcome. Please contact pic [at]
