Newly published (co-) authors/editors are invited to present their books during the BAF through 5 minutes "book sessions" that take place during the coffee breaks (think "poster session" but with books).
Deadline for submitting abstracts: 15 April 2018, midnight GMT +01:00. Abstracts for talks and book presentations should be sent in Word format (1-sided single page, A4). Before submitting an abstract you must pre-register (see "Pre-registration"). Submitting an abstract and pre-registering does not confirm your attendance. To confirm your attendance you must register. Registration will open early March.
