Please make sure that you do NOT change the formatting (fonts, margins, etc.) in any way for this is the format for the proceedings. Once you have completed your paper, save/print/export to a PDF file and then submit it. Only submission in PDF format is accepted.

Formats other than those can NOT be accepted as the fixed glass frames in the venues are in these dimensions. There will be no need to submit anything for now.


The emphasis of 8OSME is the presentation of academic papers. However, we will be running a series of more informal workshops in conjunction with the main program. These could include general discussions of an applied origami idea, presentation of a book written by an author, or sharing and teaching a model that may have useful kinetic properties, or be useful in education.

Workshops materials will not be published in the 8OSME proceedings, but workshops will be a forum to share ideas and participate with the conference.

If you would like to present a workshop please submit a proposal to us at

Model Instructions and Diagrams

Working in conjunction with the Melbourne Origami Group we will be publishing a joint model collection. If you wish to share any model instructions that may be relevant to 8OSME, in terms of educational benefit, explaining a mathematical principle, has a kinetic property that may be of interest to engineers, please share it with us for publication.

Please email all diagrams to with the subject title "Model Instructions and Diagrams".
