Potential authors should be aware that Full Papers or Extended Abstracts submitted for presentation at the AMPEAK Asset Management Conference Perth 2014 must not have been published elsewhere unless agreed by the conference organiser prior to submission.  Commercialisation in the form of touting a specific organisation or product will not be tolerated in submissions to either format.

Author Attendance at the Conference

It is AM Council policy that the author must present their Full Paper or Extended Abstract in person. If this is not possible, a substitute should be nominated and the conference organiser must be notified as soon as possible. Presentations will not be permitted unless the Full Paper or Extended Abstract has been completed and met the requirements of the paper review process and presenters/authors have registered for the conference.

If a Full Paper or Extended Abstract cannot be presented at the conference it will be withdrawn from the conference program, USB, and Conference Proceedings.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we are unable to waive registration fees for authors, however a substantial discount is available to presenting authors which will be disclosed at the earliest opportunity.
