Call for paper

Important date

Draft paper submission deadline
Final paper submission deadline


All accepted and registered papers will be published in International Conference Proceedings, which will be submitted to EI Compendex, Scopus for indexing.

Submission Guidelines

1.Templates: Please use Microsoft Word or LaTeX to create your document. All submissions must be in English. It is suggested to use the templates that incorporate the correct formatting specifications. 
2.Page limit: Varying length from 4 to 8 pages including figures and references.
3.Headers, footers, and page numbers: No headers, footers, or page numbers should appear on your manuscript.
4.Margins: Papers cannot be accepted with margins smaller than those given in the table below:

Margin         US Letter        A4    
Top 0.75 inch 19 mm         
Bottom 1 inch 43 mm
Side 0.625 inch 13 mm

5.Fonts: Fonts must be either Post Script or True Type and licensed for embedding. Use of unlicensed and custom-made or hacked fonts is strictly prohibited; your submission will be rejected if it is found to contain them. Below is a list of recommended fonts:

Content              Font
Text Times New Roman       
Code Courier
Equations Symbol

6.Graphics and Images:
1).Choose vector graphics (e.g., .eps or .pdf) over bitmap (.bmp, .png, or .jpg) images because they are electronically efficient and will not conflict with conversions to PDF.
2).All images should be checked by printing to hardcopy if the conference will be producing a book, especially when color images in your paper will be translated to black and white in print.
3).Resolution should be more than 300 dpi. 
4).Labels within graphics should have a type point size of 4 or higher.
5).Smooth Graphics should not be used as it often produces extremely large files with slow loading time. The Smooth Graphics option is usually found in the Page Setup Dialog box.
