Please note the following important instructions:
- The conference page limits must be kept to: 14 pages for full papers (oral presentation) and 6 pages for short papers (for poster presentation).

- All figures and tables should be referred to in the text.
- Do not number the pages of your paper and do not include running heads for the pages.
- References should use the MathPhySci format, as shown in the 'Guidelines for Authors' document. Authors are encouraged to include DOIs in their references where known.
- References must be supplied as Bbl files to avoid omission of data when converting from Bib to Bbl.
