Presenters will retain author copyright on their materials. Please note that a conference paper should not be simply a copy of a slide presentation.

Submission that does not comply with the above guidelines may be rejected without review or sent back to authors for resubmission after correction.

The review process is single-blind peer review. SAATA reserves the right to publish the accepted papers in conference proceedings.

Authors of accepted papers will retain copyright to their work and will give SAATA the right to publish such papers within Conference Proceedings that will go to all delegates and may afterwards be made available free or at a cost.

Accepted refereed papers, posters, etc., must be presented at the conference by an author registered to attend. We strongly encourage at least one author of every paper to register by the early-bird deadline so that session chairs can make plans for its presentation.
