Instructions to the authors

You are here : Home » Instructions to the authors

Authors wishing to be considered for the conference should submit an extended abstract of 3 pages maximum.  Those authors wishing their articles be considered for publication should send a full paper instead of the extended abstract. Papers to be considered for the doctorial consortium or a special track should be clearly indicated.

The papers can be submitted in English or French. The papers should be submitted in Microsoft Word format (size A4).  Extended abstracts should not exceed 3 pages and full papers should not exceed 15 pages, excluding references and annexes. Papers that do not respect this limitation in number of pages will be automatically rejected.

The layout of the text should be in a Word format with a 1.5 space, using 12 point Times New Roman font, and margins of 2.5 cm (top, bottom, left and right). The titles should be in bold and numbered as 1 and 1.1, 1.1.1, etc. Page numbering will be centred at the bottom of the page and begin with 1. Figures, diagrams and tables should be centred, with a numbered title and placed in the text prior to their content.

Extended abstracts will start by the title of the paper (Times New Roman, bold, 12), the authors’ names and affiliations and a list of keywords pertaining to the conference topics. Please indicate if your paper is to be considered for one of the special tracks or for the Doctoral Consortium on the next line. All communications will be with the first author.

For full papers, in addition to the 15 pages referred to above, please add two non-numbered pages at the beginning with:

  • The first page containing the title of the paper (Times New Roman, bold, 12), the authors’ names and affiliations, together with an abstract and a list of keywords.  In case of multiple authors, please indicate the contact author for all communications with the scientific committee. Please indicate if your paper is to be considered for one of the special tracks or for the Doctoral Consortium on the last line.
  • The second page contains the same elements, with the exception of the authors, their status and their contact information to ensure anonymity in the review process.
