Instructions to Authors

All contributions must be of high quality, original and not published elsewhere or submitted for publication during the review period. Papers submitted will be sent to at least two independent referees selected from the symposium scientific committee for double-blind peer review.

Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors should register and orally present the paper in the symposium. Failure to do so shall lead to the exclusion of the paper from the symposium proceedings. Each registered author/co-author can present no more than three (03) papers, unless another registered author/co-author fails to attend and requests an attending colleague to present the paper on his/her behalf.

All abstracts must be submitted electronically using the ‘Submit My Abstract’ link.

All papers must be submitted electronically in MSWord format via the link ‘Submit My Full Paper’ link.

You can find the important deadlines of the symposium from the right side panel.
