Abstract Guidelines

  • Please ensure you submit your abstract as a Word document. The abstract template is shown here in Word. Abstracts must not exceed 300 words. Click here for frequently asked questions (FAQ’s) around abstract submission.

Fullpaper Guidelines

  • Instructions for preparing and submitting your paper to ICS2018 in Haeundae are provided below. Some relevant general points are provided here first:
      -  We invite submission of papers relating to oral presentations as well as posters.
      -  It is not obligatory to submit a paper – you can present your work at the conference without publishing a paper in the      special issue of JCR.
      -  We aim to improve the quality of the papers and increase the involvement of the delegates by engaging all delegates in the      paper reviewing process. By submitting a paper the author agrees to provide constructive criticism and comments on two      other papers submitted to the session.
      -  As always with conferences, the time table is very tight and also rigid. For example, we must have the conference      proceedings available at the start of the conference. We must therefore all adhere to the deadlines, both for paper      submission and reviewer’s comment. We cannot accept papers submitted after the deadline, nor can we accept papers by      authors who do not engage in a timely manner with the reviewing process.

  • Preparing your paper

  • A template with numerous instructions in the margin and additional information at the end of the document is available. Please, try and conform to the guidelines. Reviewers will be specifically asked whether a paper is in the correct format and we will not be correcting the lay-out of your paper. If the paper is not in the JCR format, it will not be accepted. Also note that papers to be submitted should be 5 pages long. Papers that exceed the page limit will be rejected and papers with less than 5 pages are unlikely to contain sufficient information to warrant publication either. The 5 template is in Word format ( .doc), and your paper must be submitted in the same format.

Paper Submission

  • Full papers are not mandatory, however if you would like to submit a paper the deadline is November 30th 2017. Papers will be reviewed during November and December and you will be asked to submit your final paper by January 31st 2018.
  • You can download a full paper template shortly. All papers must be submitted using this template.
  • All papers will be peer reviewed, please note you may be given another author's paper for review as part of this process.
