Conference programme

View the conference programme.


This year's conference will once again be held at the Mandurah Gates Resort, 110 Mandurah Terrace, Mandurah. This is just north of the Mandurah City Centre and Estuary on the old Mandurah road (just after Stewart St. on the right as you head into Mandurah), and is about 60 mins drive from the University of Western Australia.

For relaxing after a mentally invigorating day of talks the resort offers a swimming pool, heated spa, sauna, mini-golf, half-sized tennis court, volley ball, and games room. The beach is about 100m walk, and there is a licensed bar and restaurant.


Accommodation is in two bedroom self-contained apartments which include a sitting area, kitchen facilities, private bathrooms, TV, and reverse cycle air conditioning.

The units can sleep four to five people.


Meng Seet: A simple algorithm for computing bound volume of a complex object.

Simon Huband: Using XML to specify a trace format for MPI programs.

Primantara Trisnawan: The simulation of network configuration and security testing.

Andrew Boden: Java interfaces considered insufficient: evolving Java to support design-by-contract.

Nick Lowe: A new medium for art.

James Strauss: Improving the appearance of polygonal models simplified using vertex clustering.

Kylie Clark & Ali Lahijani (ECU): Holographic Interferometry for the early detection of breast cancer.

Gian Lorenzetto: A linear time heuristic for trapezoidation of simple polygons.

Voon-Li Chung: A distributed tuple space operations protocol for VLOS.

Daniel Midgley: The best of intentions: automatic tagging of discourse acts using transformation-based learning.

Anthony Di Petro: Evolutionary computation in collaborative multi-agent environments.

Terry Woodings: Upon the variance of estimation.

Eunjung Holden: Automatic facial point detection.

Information for speakers

It is anticipated that each speaker will be allocated 30 minutes. The talks themselves should be 20 to 25 minutes in length, leaving 5 to 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

Facilities available will include an overhead projector and computer projector. Please contact one of the organisers if you require any special equipment.

Information for authors

A sample LaTeX file that can be used as a template can be found here. For those using other typesetters or word processors, please view either the dvi output or the postscript output from the sample file and match it as closely as possible. This format is required to give the proceedings a consistent look, and papers that are too different from this format will have to be returned for re-typsetting.

In particular:

  • Papers should be prepared in single column format, right and left justified, using 10pt roman font. (This is the default for LaTeX article class).
  • Page numbers should not be included, but rather printed lightly in pencil on the back of the pages.
  • Please limit papers to a maximum of 20 pages.

For printing purposes you should also take account of the following:

If intending to embed any pictures in your paper, please scan in the picture with as high resolution as possible, but print out on laser printer with 300dpi (coarse) as maximum.

  1. If you are intending to use any shading use a minimum of 20%.
  2. If intending to include graphs, use as high a contrast as possible between differing sets of data points (slight changes of tint do not print up well).
  3. Margins: Allow 25-30mm for left and right margins (minimum). Allow 20-25mm for top and bottom margins (minimum).

Deadlines for papers and abstracts

The deadlines for papers submitted to the conference are as follows:

  1. Titles to Voon-Li or myself: Friday 17th August
  2. Completed draft papers to supervisors: Friday 24th August
  3. Final papers and abstracts: Friday 31st August

These deadlines are necessary in order to allow time for reviewing, collating and printing the proceedings before the event.
