submission Deadline has passed

The submission and volunteering deadline has now passed. Thank you to all those who applied.

All accepted volunteers will be invited to attend the VSPC. However, we anticipate receiving more volunteers than there are spaces at the conference, so please understand that we cannot accept all offers.

Volunteer referees will be assigned soon. You will be asked to read 5–6 papers and send us a brief report on each.

Selected authors and volunteer chairs and commentators will be assigned before June 1.


In general, VSPC participation is self-funded. However, we have a limited budget to assist with VSPC costs for would-be participants who lack access to research funding. The deadline for bursary applications have passed. Bursary decisions will be complete by June 1.
