Speaker Papers Submission Guidelines


All conference delegates, whether presenting or not, are strongly encouraged to contribute a paper of 5 – 12 pages on any topic which they feel may be of interest.  If the paper you submit relates to any of the conference workshops or plenary sessions, please forward a copy to each of the workshop discussion leaders or plenary session speakers for the session to which the paper relates together with a copy to Katherine Donaldson, IPEBLA Management Office (Phone: +1 416-693-7775 x222 | Email: ipebla@managingmatters.com | Fax + 1 416-929-5256). 


If further assistance is needed, please contact Katherine Donaldson. The number of formal presentations is limited to encourage maximum participation and discussion by all conference delegates, particularly at the workshops.
