Type of Submissions

The 2018 Conference Committee aims to create a conference program with a mix of the following presentation types:

Referred Papers 
Refereed Papers are distributed to an Academic Panel for preview and evaluation. The review process is typically carried out over a number of weeks and aims at maintaining or enhancing a certain quality of work. As the review process involves a number of unbiased opinions relating to a certain abstract, Refereed Papers are therefore typically viewed as more credible. Presenters wishing to submit a Refereed Paper Presentation must submit an abstract of up to 400 words. Refereed Paper Presentations will be allocated one 30-minute session including questions. These presentations may report on research projects or research-to-practice reports. Upon acceptance of the abstract, authors will be asked to submit a full paper for peer review. Accepted papers will be published as Conference Papers on the AASE website. The PowerPoint from these presentations may be made available on the AASE website following the Conference. Authors may choose to subsequently submit their papers to the editor for consideration for publication in the Australasian Journal of Special Education.

Concurrent Presentations
Presenters not seeking formal review of a written paper can submit an abstract of up to 400 words for a Concurrent Presentation. These presentations will be allocated one 30-minute session including questions. The PowerPoint from these presentations may be made available on the AASE website following the Conference.

Posters

Presenters wishing to submit a poster presentation must submit an abstract of up to 400 words. If accepted, the poster must not exceed the size of A0 (1189-841mm) and be brought along to the Conference for display. All accepted posters will be displayed for the duration of the Conference.
