Submission of Abstracts

Rules for abstract submission

The conference is based on the no-abstract, no-paper, no-podium rule. This means that, in order to make a presentation, you must submit your full-length paper by the due date in the specified format. Full-length papers may be submitted only when the abstract of the paper has been accepted. So if you wish to present a paper at the conference you MUST submit an abstract of your paper by the specified date.

Please remember that submission dates are final and abstracts and papers should be submitted earlier and not later than the specified date (see Important dates).

Abstracts should be submitted via this web site after creating an account on this web site. Authors will be notified of acceptance by the Conference Editors. Final acceptance will be based upon review of the full length paper which must be received before the full paper deadline.

Format and content requirements
  • The abstract should clearly state what is new in the paper.
  • Abstracts should be 500 to 1000 words. No figures, no tables, no equations. References are allowed.
  • Please supply author names and affiliations in the following style:

    A.B. Smith* and J.F. Wesson+,
    *Centre for Special Studies, Tower University, London, United Kingdom,
    +Institute of Computer Generated Information, University of Western Flanders, Ostend, Belgium.

    Please note: The affiliations should be in English without abbreviations. Author's first names are abbreviated to initials.
  • The title should be maximum 80 characters long including spaces between words. It should not contain any non-alphanumeric symbols or embedded equations.
  • Keywords: 6-12 keywords - in decreasing order of importance - should indicate the topics addressed by your paper.
  • Corresponding author: name, title, email. Please note that this information must be accurate if you are to receive further conference information including acknowledgements, acceptances, registration information and paper preparation details. Ideally the corresponding author should be the person who will present the paper at the conference but it may be appropriate for another co-author to be the corresponding author.
