Conference General Proceedings Publication

Oral presentations will be published in a General Technical Report (GTR) by the Southern Research Station. Authors should submit a final manuscript of a complete paper for the GTR (general proceedings of the conference) no later than June 1, 2011. This year the BSSRC offers the option for authors of oral presentations to submit an extended abstract instead of a full paper. Poster presenters may choose to submit a complete paper or an extended abstract, or neither. Abstracts by themselves will not be published in the GTR. Peer review and editorial review are expected prior to submission for publication.
