Convocation rules

Established by Convocation council

1 Unless previous notice to the contrary be given, all persons engaged to present papers must be in readiness at the time assigned by the council, in default of which all remaining papers will be entitled to precedence.

2 In case of inability to be present, immediate notice should be gived to the secretary to whom the paper may be forwarded for use of the Convocation.

3 The author of each paper should furnish, in advance, a brief abstract for newspaper reports and, to prevent errors in the records, each person taking part in any discussion, should promptly give the secretary an abstract of his remarks.

4 All papers read before the Convocation belong to its proceedings and are to be handed to the secretary.

5 Any papers for the full reading of which there may not be time, may, by permission of the council, be read by title and published in the proceedings.
