Last-minute presentations
In addition to the scheduled presentations, a portion of the technical stream will be set aside for 'last-minute' technical presentations, the aim of which is to present up-to-the-minute material.

Proposals for the last-minute presentations need not be submitted until three weeks before the start of the conference - a call for papers will be announced in early August. Presenting a full paper will not preclude an individual from being selected to present a last-minute presentation.
