Extended abstracts (minimum 2 pages), full draft papers or other proposals should be submitted for the review process through the submission section. The extended abstract or the full draft paper must contain title, authors, affiliations, addresses, main body and references. Each extended abstract or full draft paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee taking into consideration scientific quality, originality and relevance. Only original papers, written in English will be accepted. The extended abstract or the full draft paper should be prepared by following the final paper formatting. However any type of paper formatting can be accepted for the first submission.
IMPORTANT: submissions for special sessions must respect the procedure defined by session organizers (please refer to the special sessions section)
After the notification of acceptance, authors are required to prepare and submit the camera ready paper. The International Program Committee will accept camera ready papers up to 10 pages, 2 columns length (minimum lenght 4 pages). The camera ready paper must adhere to the conference template. The .dot file contains the complete instructions for preparing a camera ready copy for the Proceedings. The final version of the paper must be a PDF file. If your work must be cleared or approved before publication by your institution, company, or governmental agency, please be sure that process will be completed by the due date above or we will not be able to include it in the CD Conference Proceedings.
The conference provides the opportunity to publish extended versions of the conference papers on different International Journals. The Organization Committee would like to speed up the journal publication processes, therefore at the time of preparing the camera ready paper for the conference, selected authors can also prepare an extended version for the journals (please see the deadline section for information about deadlines for journal submission). The extended version for the journals must be at least 50% different from the conference paper. Information for journal articles submission will be provided to selected authors by email.
A full registration is needed in order to guarantee the publication of the paper in the Conference Proceedings. Without registration the paper will not be published in the Conference Proceedings. Further information on Registration and Fees
Good visual aids can greatly enhance the effect your presentation has on the audience. Experience at past conferences has shown that many of the oral presentations have not been adequately prepared. Often an attempt was made to present too much material and too much detail. Visual aids, the primary means to hold the attention of the audience, were often poorly conceived and inadequately prepared. It is our hope that these guidelines will help you prepare a better visual presentation. IMAACA sessions are characterized by 3/5 minutes for introductions and then 20/25 minutes per paper, of which 5 minutes should be reserved for audience questions and comments.
