Research domains

Papers are invited for presentation under one of nine broad research domains.

Submissions must be linked with one of the research domains specified to facilitate the development of a thematically streamed programme and authors should choose the domain which fits most closely with the content of the presentation.

It is recognised that it is not always obvious which research domain provides a “best fit” but authors are encouraged to submit proposals in the domain in which they would most like their paper to be timetabled. Papers will be timetabled for presentation within these 9 research domains.
