There will be a theme issue of the journal Shima arising from the conference that will be published in April 2025.

All conference presenters are invited to submit extended versions of their papers (4000-8000 words, including footnotes and bibliographies) for review by September 1st 2024. Manuscripts can be submitted for review in any standard format but, if accepted, the final manuscript will need to be formatted according to Shima guidelines, see instructions for authors at:

All submissions will be double-blind peer reviewed and reports will be delivered to submitting authors by November 1st 2024, allowing authors the opportunity to address reviewers’ recommendations and – if recommended – make the required revisions.

The deadline for the submission of revised material will be January 15th 2025.


Any queries on the above should be addressed to the Shima editor, Philip Hayward, at: prhshima(at)
