Call for Papers open

Draft slides for both tutorial and conference sessions MUST be provided
with submissions otherwise the PC will be unable to review the
submission; this means that submissions that do not include slides will
be rejected immediately. For work in progress, the most current
information available at time of submission is acceptable.
All draft and complete slides must be submitted in PDF format only.
Final slides are to be provided for publication by 21 February 2021.
Prospective presenters should note that the majority of speaking slots
will be filled well before the final submission deadline. Presenters
should try to get material to the PC sooner rather than later.
More information about key dates is available on the conference website.

The user agent string their crawlers will be using is: NLNZ_IAHarvester2021
For more information on our domain crawls please see http://natlib.govt.nz/publishers-and-authors/web-harvesting/domain-harvest
While we do our best to crawl respectfully, obey robots.txt, and break out of any crawler traps before grinding too much bandwidth, if you encounter any issues from us then please get in contact.
