When submitting a paper you will be asked to complete an online submission form. Please ensure that all information such as the paper title, author name & contact details and other fields are completed accurately when uploading your initial submission, as these may be used in the published conference proceedings and authors will be unable to edit these online.

For the reviewing process do I need to submit a draft paper, or will an abstract be enough?

To submit a paper to the BAM conference we require a draft paper to be submitted for review; an abstract will not suffice. What is required for submission varies for the different paper types.
