** New Section: Selection and Participation of Children

Under this subheading, the authors of the paper should describe how children were selected (if there were no children simply write – no children participated in this work), what consent processes were followed (i.e. did they consent and if so what they were told), and anything especially interesting in terms of how the children participated.

This subsection should not exceed 125 words and will not count towards the page limit – even if this detail is elsewhere in the paper we still want to see this paragraph. Examples can be seen in IDC’16 proceedings.
