We have had a number of requests to extend the submission dates for papers to this years conference (http://www.herga.com.au/conference.html) particularly due to clashes with marking at this time of the year.
We are happy to announce an extension to the 27th of July for papers, workshops, posters and panel discussion submissions.
As this date will put pressure on our reviewers, we ask that if you do intend to submit, you indicate this by going to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/herga_2014_intent and leaving your details. This will allow us to have the required number of reviewers ready to do their work from the due date.
We hope this extension will prove helpful to you, and wish you all the best with your marking :-)
