Authors should prepare an Extended Abstract of minimum three (3) pages and maximum four (4) pages that clearly indicates the originality of the contribution and the relevance of the work. The Extended Abstract should include the title of the paper, names and affiliations of the authors, an abstract, an introduction describing the nature of the problem and the state of the art in the field of interest, a description of the contribution, the results achieved and their applicability, conclusions, and references.
All accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings as Institute of Physics (IOP) open access Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS) and made available at the Conference. It is indexed in Inspec, Scopus and ISI Web of Science (WoS).
When the review process has been completed, authors receive a notification of either acceptance or rejection of the submission. If the paper has been accepted, the authors can prepare a final paper that incorporates the reviewers' suggestions.
The format for the final paper is identical to the format for the extended abstract except for the number of pages: the full paper has a required minimum length of four (4) pages and a maximum of six (6) pages.
Authors must prepare their papers using IOP Science JPCS Microsoft Word or LaTeX2e templates, and then convert these to PDF format for submission. Please note that papers will not be edited, proofread or have changes made to the layout. It is, therefore, the author's responsibility to ensure that the content and layout are correct — no changes can be made after publication.
