Guidelines for Manuscript Preparation

Initial Manuscript Guideline

Please ensure that your conference paper satisfies the following points:

1. Originality

Is the work scientifically rigorous, accurate and novel? Does the work contain significant additional material to that already published? Has its value been demonstrated?

You are agreeing to any necessary originality checks (plagiarism, multiple submissions) your paper may have to undergo during the peer review and production processes. 

Each manuscript must be accompanied by a statement that it has not been published elsewhere and that it has not been submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to reproduce copyrighted material from other sources and are required to sign an agreement transferring the copyright to the publisher. All accepted manuscripts, artwork, and photographs become the property of the publisher.


2. Relevancy

Is the material appropriate to the scope of the conference to which it is submitted?


3. Clarity

Is the English clear and well written? Poorly written English may obscure the scientific merit of your paper. Are the ideas expressed clearly and concisely? Are the concepts understandable?


Manuscript Presentation

Please use the provided manuscript templates.

You have to choose an appropriate template that suits to your paper.

Papers should be prepared in the following order: Introduction, to explain the background work, the practical applications and the nature and purpose of the paper; Body, to contain the primary message, with clear lines of thought and validation of the techniques described; Conclusion; Acknowledgements (when appropriate) and References.

Please do not change the format and layout style defined in the document template. The editorial teams of each publisher will do the final editing and layout processing before your paper is published.
