People presenting papers or posters to 9ASM are strongly encouraged to prepare a paper for the conference proceedings. Papers are between 2-8 pages in length.

Publishing your conference presentation as a paper means that it will be an important and permanent legacy of your work.  Papers from past ASM conferences are available online and have been read and cited many thousands of time. The papers ensure knowledge exchange across the industry nationwide and internationally and have broad appeal to local groups, managers, policy makers and researchers.

Papers describe new techniques, tools, theories or inventions, or present case histories that extend our understanding of stream management.  Papers should present new ideas, methods, applications, techniques, management approaches or policy. The conference proceedings can be considered as an industry journal.

Peer Review Process

All papers are reviewed by other conference participants (who are also authoring papers themselves), and revised, before being published online in formal conference proceedings. You will receive constructive evaluation from peers and leaders in the field. Specialist feedback improves the quality of papers, and therefore the quality of the conference.

As a participant in the conference you are strongly encouraged to review at least one other paper. This is not an onerous task and should take less than an hour.  The Editorial team will endeavor to match the paper to your interests so that the review is valuable for the author as well as the reviewer. Simple guidelines for reviewers will be made available.

Once your paper is reviewed you will need to make changes you feel are acceptable before final submission. The Editorial Committee is there to assist with any questions or concerns about the submission or review.

  • Three days of Conference Sessions from Monday 13th August to Wednesday 15th August, incorporating a half day technical tour on Tuesday, 14th August.
