Submit a Conference Paper or Book Chapter

To assist authors and contributors with the keying of their work to the standard required, we have made available Instructions for Authors and Example Sheets.

• Please note that the instructions are intended to give consistency of style and format. Failure to comply with these instructions may result in your paper being returned and cause a delay in publication.

• It is important that you use the correct set of instructions as there are three, each pertaining to a different size of book.


• If you are submitting a paper for a Conference Proceeding you must use the Conference Books instructions. Please note that papers for conference proceedings should not exceed 12 pages in length.


• If you are in any doubt as to the size of book for which you are about to submit a paper or chapter then please check with our Production Editor, Isabelle Rham ( irham@witpress.com ) before starting to format your work.
