The Call for Papers for the 12th SIA Biennial Conference has yet to be Announced.
For SubSTEC Conferences, technical papers will be incorporated in the Conference Proceedings and it is vital that the template is used. Do not reformat your paper to look the same.
Conference proceedings are not produced for Biennial SIA Conferences
Presentations for all SIA Conferences should be prepared in MS PowerPoint and set up in 16:9 format (widescreen). To adopt this format, select File>Page Setup... and select 'Slides sized for: On-screen shown (16:9). Use of the 4:3 format will have an effect on the presentation and will result in graphics and text becoming distorted.
See the Conference Registration page for details.
Invited Plenary Speakers are guests of the SIA and are entitled to free registration for the entire conference and free attendance at the Reception and Dinner.
Presenters of accepted technical papers are entitled to free registration for the day of their presentation.
To assist with conference management and catering, we require that all Guest Plenary Speakers and Presenters of papers register for the conference. Once Presentations have been accepted, you will be advised of a promotional code which, when entered, will allow you to register for the 2 Day Conference only ticket at a discounted rate that incorporates your existing discount status. Presenters wishing to register for additional (chargeable) events (eg Tours, Reception, Dinner) should do so on the same ticket.
