Please consider contributing to this conference by presenting a paper. There is a lot of fantastic work being done out there – why not tell the profession about it? Please contact us for more information and to indicate interest in presenting at APAS2020.


The conference program is regularly updated. Please check here for the latest, once available.



The Call for Abstracts is now open.

All abstracts must use the standard abstract template.

All instructions must be followed and the abstract must be submitted via email. Abstracts not using the standard template will not be accepted.


For your information, the deadlines for APAS2020 contributions are as stated below. Please ensure that you meet these deadlines, so the conference program and proceedings can be finalised in time.

  • Abstract submission deadline: Friday, 20 Sep 2019
  • Draft paper deadline: Friday, 22 Nov 2019
  • Final paper deadline: Friday, 24 Jan 2020
  • Conference: 23-25 March 2020 (Mon-Wed, with presentations on Tue & Wed)


We recognise that authors may not be very experienced in writing papers. In fact, we encourage submissions from authors that do not normally present their work at conferences. We therefore offer two paper deadlines.

By submitting your paper by the draft paper deadline, you have the opportunity to receive feedback from the Editor which may result in improvements of your paper. Any suggested changes can then be made before the final paper deadline.

In addition, a full paper template is provided to authors to help in the production of the paper and the conference proceedings. Please note that submissions not using this template will not be accepted.

The proceedings of past conferences can be accessed via the Resources page.
