Abstract submissions

Researchers should submit their abstracts electronically here.

A contributor in the conference may be a single author of only one paper and may be the co-author of two additional papers. Submitted abstracts of max 500 words (one page) will be reviewed in accordance with the following criteria:

  1. Significance: Does this study address an important problem?
  2. Innovation: Does the study employ novel concepts and aims or original methods?
  3. Approach: Are the conceptual frameworks, designs, methods, and analyses adequate?
  4. Usefulness: How can the research objectives benefit the respective scientific area?
  5. Clarity: How clear and well-organized is the presentation?

The researcher(s) will be notified whether their accepted paper will be prepared as an oral presentation.
All papers must be submitted as .doc, .docx or .pdf format. All other formats will not be accepted.

Workshop proposal submission

Proposals for workshops should be about two (2) pages in length, and should contain the following:

  • A description of the workshop topic. Identify the specific issues on which the workshop will focus.
  • A brief discussion of why the topic is of particular interest at this time, including a discussion of prior workshops in this area (if applicable).
  • A brief description highlighting the organizing committee’s expertise in the area and experience organizing similar events.
  • A brief description of the proposed workshop format, regarding the mix of events such as paper presentations, invited talks, panels, and general discussion.
  • The names and full contact information (email and postal addresses, fax and telephone numbers) of the organizing committee – three or four people knowledgeable in the field-and short descriptions of their relevant expertise. (Please specify the main contact.)

Workshop proposals should be submitted electronically here as soon as possible and no later than the designated deadline. Word format is preferred. Organizers will be notified of the committee’s decision.

Presentation Guidelines

Oral presentations should be of max 20 minutes duration (15’ minutes presentation +5 minutes questions and discussion).

The conference will be equipped with a video projector and a computer connected to the projector for each oral presentation room. Normal audio equipment such as microphones will be provided.

Presentations should be saved in ppt or pdf format.

In order to minimize incompatibilities between software versions, it is suggested that the Save As” option be used from the Powerpoint “File” pull-down menu. When a dialog box pops up, click on the “Tools” menu on that dialog box and select “Save Options”. Then, check the option “Embed true type fonts”. Click “OK” and then click “Save”. This will include the fonts originally used in the presentation and minimize any font incompatibility problems. Otherwise, any fonts that are not recognized by the conference computers will be incomprehensible.

In addition to the default “.pptx” file format, we suggest to presenters to also save a copy of their presentation in the “.ppsx” (PowerPoint Show) format. We also suggest presenters save (or print) their presentations into a “.pdf” format and thus be able to use the free Adobe Reader software to present in case of any incompatibilities.

All the authors are requested to (a) visit the Speaker Ready Room at least one day prior to the session, (b) verify their presentation for compatibility and proper operation. If necessary, especially if you have embedded multi-media content, you will have the final opportunity to adjust or tweak your presentation at that time.

Poster submission guidelines

Posters will be exhibited on a billboard at scheduled day and time according to the programme. They should be placed at an indicated place for all the session and should be removed after finishing the poster session the same day. We will provide material for attaching your poster. The maximum poster size is A0: 1189 mm x 841 mm (portrait or landscape). Authors are expected to be present by their poster during the session.

Full paper submission guidelines

Following the conference authors will be contacted in order to submit the full paper of their presentation. All papers will be subjected to double blind peer-reviewing and are expected to meet the scientific criteria of novelty and academic excellence. Results of the paper review will be sent to the author within two weeks of submission along with reviewer comments. Before final submission, all reviewers’ comments must be considered.

Researchers should submit their papers electronically  here.Submitted manuscripts should not exceed 8 pages, including illustrations and references. All papers must be submitted as both doc (or .docx) and .pdf format, without page numbers and without author(s) name. Format your paper according to the following template Microsoft Word or Latex.

The corresponding author is responsible for ensuring that the article’s publication has been approved by all other co-authors and takes responsibility for the paper during submission and peer review.

Round Table 

Round tables should consist of 4 to 5 presentations and a collective discussion to enhance presentations, which is an integral part of this session format. The emphasis is on discussion of key issues using audience participation. The round table conveners should fill in the round table form, here, which includes an abstract for the proposed round table as well as for each individual presentation. Please note that every participant must register individually, if the round table is accepted. The duration of each round table is scheduled for 90 minutes: 15 minutes for each presentation, and 20-40 minutes collective discussion (depending on the number of presentations).

The official language of the conference is English.
