QAMT will publish conference proceedings for QAMTAC on the QAMT website.
Please note that if you are presenting at QAMTAC, you are required to submit an abstract for the conference program. You are also encouraged to submit a full paper if possible, though this is optional.
Be aware that papers published in the conference proceedings are not refereed.
There are two types of presentations at QAMTAC – keynote addresses (forty five-fifty minutes so as to allow for question time) and workshops (fifty minutes).
There is no maximum length of a paper, though a short paper (one to four pages) is more likely to be read in full than a long one. Support materials such as spreadsheets, sound files, software, TI-Interactive files, and short video clips can also be submitted. While we don’t have a maximum file size, please confer with the QAMTAC Convenor if you wish to submit a large file.
Written permission of original copyright holders must be provided for material that could not otherwise be reproduced legally, or cited using normal academic conventions. This could include, for example, a significant table or diagram from another publication, and applies even if you are the author of the original material.
A copyright statement similar to this must be included at the end of your document. We suggest that you copy and paste this statement at the end of your document – all you have to change is the author’s name.
Authors Name © 2009. The author assigns to the Queensland Association of Mathematics Teachers and other educational and non-profit institutions a non-exclusive license to use this document (and any included computer files) for personal use and in courses of instruction, provided that the article is used in full and this copyright statement is reproduced. The author also grants a non-exclusive license to the Queensland Association of Mathematics Teachers to publish this document in full on the QAMT website. Any other usage is prohibited without the express permission of the author.
Presentation of papers
All papers and abstracts should be submitted in Microsoft Word format.
The preferred way to receive papers and abstracts is as attachments via email with the conference title, author name & presentation title in the subject area.
All attached files should be clearly labelled as above and editable for the use of the conference convener. Other than minor editing changes (if we happen to spot a spelling mistake, for instance), the document that you submit is the document that will appear on the website.
Publishing of Papers
If a paper contains many graphics, or one or more large graphics, or graphics in a format that is not universal, we will convert the paper into PDF (portable document format). This is a universal format that retains the original appearance of the document.
The Teaching Mathematics Journal
The editor of Teaching Mathematics may request that your paper appear in the Teaching Mathematics journal prior to being published on the website. If you give permission, it will be published in one of the next two issues. The formatting will be changed and minor editing may be carried out. If major editing is required, the editor will send you a copy of the edited version to check that you are still happy with it. This will be easier if an e-mail address is provided.

Information about the conference is available from the QAMTAC conference page or by emailing the QAMT office.
