All of these professionals share a common interest: the production of breakthrough science outcomes with workflows that require large scale computation, massive data sets and complex analysis.
We invite expressions of interest for:
Accepted presenters will be required to register for the conference, pay the appropriate registration fee and meet their own travel and accommodation costs.

The online submission portal will require selection from the following categories and activities:
Please click on the items below for further detail.
Authors will be able to add a specific description when submitting your abstract online.
While you will be asked to indicate your preferred presentation format, the conference committee may request an alternative format be considered. The committee will allocate presentations to the program taking into account the preference of authors and the balance of the program.
We anticipate that authors will be the principal presenter for at most one presentation, but may be the principal presenter for more than one display poster.
Workshops are intended to be interactive sessions with defined learning outcomes.
Birds of a Feather sessions (BoFs), Unconferences, and Tutorial sessions may also be considered, noting these formats must be submitted as half or full day workshops and are subject to the same review process and conditions as traditional workshops (please see below).
Authors interested in delivering a workshop should submit a 250 word overview of the suggested session via the on-line portal.
When submitting a workshop online, you are only required to enter the name and biography of the lead author and/or facilitator. Following review, the committee may request more information.
Once accepted into the program, workshop hosts will be required to provide a full workshop overview to the committee for inclusion in the online program. The overview should include all content being delivered during the workshop and all presenter names and affiliations. It is expected this information be provided to the committee at least one month prior to the conference.
If you are expressing interest in hosting a workshop, please note the conference charges delegates a registration fee per workshop that is not included in the conference registration fee.
This is necessary in order to cover catering, venue, and organisation costs for the workshops. Please see the registration page (coming soon) for the fee schedule.
If you would prefer your delegates to pay a reduced cost to attend your workshop you are very welcome to subsidise their attendance; this can be arranged with the conference organisers.
Oral presentations may be original research, case presentations, large scale projects or analytical studies. Where possible, presentations with a similar theme will be grouped together.
It is anticipated oral presentations will be allocated 15 minutes for presentation, including 3 minutes for question time, however the conference committee may like to offer some authors more or less time based on presentation content and interest in the subject matter.
Presentation length will be confirmed to authors upon acceptance of their submission.
An A0 portrait size poster that will be displayed for the duration of the Conference.
The abstract and a PDF of each accepted poster will be included in the conference app for delegates to view on their smart devices.
Presenters will also be asked to attend their poster during a poster viewing session to discuss the poster with other delegates.

Dedicated space will be available at C3DIS for interactive displays, such as electronic posters, VR exhibits, demonstrations etc.
It is anticipated screens on stands and/or projectors will be available to interactive display presenters, along with power and a clothed trestle table.
Presenters will be responsible for the provision of all other equipment needed for their interactive display.
When submitting an abstract, authors should describe their interactive display and their display requirements.

All presenters will be required to register for the conference and pay the appropriate registration fee. Presenters also need to meet their own travel and accommodation costs.
The Conference Committee & Stream Chairs will review all submissions.

Speaker’s Preparation Room
Please proceed to the Speaker’s Preparation room at least 4 hours prior to or the day before your presentation. A technician will be available in the speaker’s preparation room to load your presentation and to discuss any audiovisual queries you may have. If you are not providing slides for your presentation, please advise the AV technician in the Speaker’s Preparation room 4 hours prior to your session.
Each session room will be equipped for the presentation of PowerPoint slides and include a data projector, computer with external speakers, lectern and microphone.
Please provide any specific audiovisual requirements to the Conference Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
An Audio Visual technician will be located in your room throughout the course of your presentation and will provide assistance in the unlikely instance an issue occurs. Please ensure you take the time to familiarise yourself with the technology prior to your presentation.
Presenters should bring their Power Point slides to the conference on a memory stick, where an audiovisual technician will load your presentation.
Video and audio clips should be embedded in your Power Point slides rather than linking to external files.
All slides will be run from a central presentation computer. However, if you have a complex presentation, which includes multiple media files, we suggest you bring your own laptop as a backup in case of difficulties loading your presentation.
The conference will seek your consent to post your presentation slides to the conference website following the event. Consent forms will be available in the Speakers Preparation room and need to be signed prior to your presentation.
