Pre-Print

Conference pre-print

We are reviving the Saga Conference’s tradition of pre-prints. Contributing a full paper is optional. If you choose not to contribute a paper, we will publish your abstract in its place, and kindly ask you style your abstract in the template for pre-print papers provided. This will provide you an opportunity to check that your abstract is up to date while easing our workload (and the online form lost all italic font).

Pre-print papers may be in any language of the conference. The published paper need not be in the language of your presentation (e.g. to make your presentation more accessible to speakers of different languages). Your presentation also need not be a slave to the printed paper: ideas evolve and may develop considerably by the time we reach the conference.

Please use the template below when submitting your paper or styled abstract in order to make the layout of your own and more than 250 other papers and abstracts as efficient as possible:

The template is set up to use “styles” so that your submitted paper should be print-ready. There is a lot of information in the template that may already be familiar to you or that is not relevant to your own paper, so we thank you in advance for your patience. Please note that papers must be submitted in the template to be included in the pre-print.

Kindly note the following maximum length restrictions (including lists of references):

  • Papers = max 9 pages
  • Round table discussions = max 6
  • Posters = max 4 page

The length limits are absolute owing to printing costs. If your paper is longer than the limit or you miss the deadline, it cannot be included in the pre-print and we will include your abstract instead.
