Information for authors & presenters

Information for authors & presenters
We have 30 minute slots, so each presenter will have ca. 20 minutes for their talk, plus 8 minutes discussion time. The rooms have computers and projector - please make sure your data is on that computer (not your own laptop) in the coffee/lunch break before your session starts. If you want to use printed handouts, make sure you bring these.
In the publication, each paper will be allowed ca. 7500 words.
The poster stands are ca. 1x2m, including 'legs'. So, posters should be max A1 (landscape or portrait) or A0 (portrait). Posters remain on stands, available in in all 4 coffee breaks. Velcro for fixing is provided.
You can print the poster in Leeds, rather than bringing it with you, but in that case you would need to come on Friday and make sure that you are in touch with a relevant print shop beforehand.
A short version of the poster, ca. 2000 words, will be published in the proceedings as well.
All publications

Dates to be announced! (In any case, after the conference.)

The information below will come into effect after the meeting.

Full papers will be re-submitted on EasyChair and peer reviewed a 2nd time. Submission to Springer is taken care of by the editor.

We will use the  "Springer SocPsych" Author-Date reference style (sample), which is basically "APA 6th". (Program files: EndNoteZoteroBibTeX.)

Papers should not exceed 7500 words - less is more!

Detailed technical guidelines and templates (Word/LaTeX) are on Our papers are ‘chapters’ of the volume, so relevant points are on We will not make an index. The usage of Springer's (antique) templates is not mandatory. Alternatively, a) for Word, use the template or a blank document and with the default settings and styles (e.g., for heading styles, lists, footnotes, etc.) - but do use styles rather than formatting by hand. b) For LaTeX Aaron Sloman has kindly provided additional detailed instructions.

A complete submission will comprise:

  1. Paper with references in pdf
  2. Paper with references in source file (Word or LaTeX) - 'attached' in EasyChair
  3. Abstract (150-250 words, no references) - direct text in EasyChair and in the paper
  4. 3-5 Keywords - direct in EasyChair, not in the paper
  5. Permissions to copyrighted material, if applicable

The final formattting is done by Springer. This is called ""Submit a New Version" on EasyChair - please do not use the 'proceedings' submission!
