The CAA 2013 Conference will include several formats for the delivery of
content, including the following:

- Paper sessions

Long paper sessions (LP):

A conventional format session of related 20 minute papers with 10 minute
question time. Papers should present new and ground-breaking research.

Focus sessions (FS):

A session consisting of thematically-related 5 minute key-point
presentations, an optional discussant to pull the theme together, followed
by a room-based breakout organised around posters or demos presenting
additional information to maximise networking. Note: Focus Session papers
are not 'short papers', they are regarded as full papers.

- Roundtables

A panel addressing a specific topic or issue, coordinated by one or more
individuals. Presentations of the speakers will normally be followed by a
discussant and general discussion.

- Posters

A poster session will provide an opportunity for preliminary work to be
presented and discussed directly with the presenter.

All research presented at CAA2013, regardless of the delivery format, may be
submitted after the conference for publication in the peer reviewed
conference proceedings.

- Workshops:

The conference will include a number of half and full day pre-conference
workshops. Workshops will generally include practical work or other active
participation of attendees.
