Author Information

Note to Authors 


Each presenting author will be required to register and pay for the Conference by Monday 7 October 2024 to ensure their submission(s) are included in the final Conference program. Authors who do not register by the deadline will be removed from the Conference program.


All Conference submissions accepted for the ANZAM Conference program can be made available to delegates in the electronic Conference proceedings. However, after acceptance, the lead author will be asked if they want to ‘opt in’ to having their full submission published in the Conference proceedings (see further information below) or only the abstract.


The Conference proceedings have an ISBN and indicate clearly that all refereed submissions were double-blind peer reviewed. In addition, a printed Conference summary will report titles, authors and abstracts for refereed Conference submissions as well as panels and symposia. Please note that the copyright of the Conference proceedings belongs to ANZAM. The copyright of the individual submissions belongs to the authors.





The 2024 ANZAM conference is planned as an in-person only event and it will not be possible for submissions to be presented virtually. If the submission cannot be presented by a conference attendee, then please advise the Conference Chair as early as possible so that we can adjust the Conference program.



Opt-In Option

Publication in the Proceedings


The ARC-driven ‘Excellence for Research in Australia’ (ERA) and ‘Performance Based Research Fund in New Zealand’ (PBRF) initiatives have highlighted the relative importance of research publications in ranked journals compared with unranked journals or conference proceedings publications. In order to provide lead authors with some flexibility around this issue, the submission process for the ANZAM Conference includes an option for lead authors to ‘opt in or out’ of having their full paper(s) included in the Conference proceedings.


Once the proceedings have been published in mid December, they cannot be edited.


If you select the opt out option, only your abstract will be included in the proceedings. Your full submission will NOT be published. The submission and refereeing/revision processes will remain unchanged. This option may be of interest to submitters concerned that publication of a full Conference paper may preclude publication in some journals, particularly those that publish relatively short papers.


If the author(s) of submissions that are nominated Best Paper Awards have chosen to opt out of the proceedings, they must at a minimum be agreeable to their submission being temporarily available online (approx. two weeks) to ANZAM members. If the author(s) are not agreeable to this then the nomination will be revoked, and another submission will be selected as a nominee for the award.
