Instructions for Authors
Call for Papers
Contributions are invited on subjects within the Conference Scope and also on other relevant subjects.
Submitted papers must be of high quality, original and not published elsewhere or submitted for publication during the review period.
Papers will be reviewed by members of the International Programme Committee and depending on their standard, attributes, and reviewer recommendations, may be selected for oral or poster presentation, and publication in an appropriate medium.
Full papers may be submitted for consideration for inclusion in the conference proceedings, following peer-review by at least two referees.
Complete, full-length papers (not abstracts) must be provided for review in the case of papers intended for the proceedings.
The proceedings will be published in two gold standard open access journals, and the papers will be freely available to read and download.
Papers from the General Track will be published as a special edition of InImpact: The Journal of Innovation Impact (ISSN 2051-6002).
Papers from the Workshop on Smart Medical and Healthcare Systems will be published as a special edition of Advances in Smart Systems Research (ISSN 2050-8662).
Both journals are open access publication with no fees for reading or downloading the papers and are part of the KES Open Access Library (KOALA). Authors assign to the publisher the right to publish the paper, but apart from this, keep rights to the paper themselves.
The guide length for Full Papers is eight to 12 pages (approx. 4000-6000 words). Longer papers will incur an additional charge. Papers much shorter than the guide length should be submitted as Short Papers.
Authors of selected papers may be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication as book chapters in a published volume.
Authors may choose to submit a contribution for presentation without the submission of a full paper. In this case, a Short Paper in the form of an abstract, guidelength one to four pages, summarising the subject and content of the talk, should be submitted.
Short Papers will be distributed in the conference digest and may be published through the conference website, along with the powerpoint presentation used.
