About work submission and review
  • What kind of submission is recommended for my work ?
    • Full papers are reccommended for complete research works by all categories of authors (researchers and / or students). Non-student researchers (including post-docs) may publish brief papers to communicate new ideas, speculative hypotheses, and original reviews, or to report work in progress or recent results. Students (graduate or undergraduate) may report their work in progress by means of poster submission. See the call for works and info for authors pages.
  • How many pages can my work have ?
    • Full papers can have up to 10 pages without figures, or 12 pages with figures. Brief papers can have up to 5 pages. Poster abstracts must have only one page. Brief papers are for communicating new ideas, new findings, conjectures and speculations, by experient researchers and post-doctoral fellows - not directed to students. If you are not an experient researcher and your paper is about a work that is still on course, you should consider to submit it as a poster. (see info for authors webpage).
