Call for Papers
Authors are invited to submit full (and original research) papers (6-12 pages)
including surveys, tutorials, perspective/colloquia articles in conference topics of interest
through the EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icsf2020) by December 31, 2019.
Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by three reviewers on the basis of technical quality, relevance, originality,
significance, and clarity. If necessary, a fourth, additional reviewer will be involved.
The Program Committee will use these reviews to determine which papers will be accepted for presentation at the conference.
The result of the reviewing will be announced to the submitting authors by email, along with reviewer comments, if any.
Accepted papers written in English will be published as a special issue of the
E3S Web of Conferences journal (eISSN: 2267-1242 / publisher: EDP Sciences) in two month after conference.
Submissions should be:
basically, correct and sound;
original (not published elsewhere partly or in full and not submitted to other venues for simultaneous consideration);
presented at the conference (at least one author of each article should attend to the conference);
in line with the scope of ICSF.
A maximum of two articles per author is accepted.
One paper shouldn't have more than five authors.
The number of references in the list of references should not be less than 10.
A single study is not split up into several parts to increase the quantity of submissions and submitted
to various edited book projects or journals or to one journal over time (e.g. "salami-publishing").
No data have been fabricated or manipulated (including images) to support the manuscript's
No data, text, or theories by others are presented as if they were the authors own ("plagiarism").
Proper acknowledgements to other works must be given (this includes material that is closely copied
(near verbatim), summarized and/or paraphrased), quotation marks are used for verbatim copying
of material, and permissions are secured for material that is copyrighted.
Consent to submit has been received from all co-authors and responsible authorities at the
institute/organization where the work has been carried out before the work is submitted.
Authors whose names appear on the submission have contributed sufficiently to the scientific work
and therefore share collective responsibility and accountability for the results.
In case you have never worked with the EasyChair system before, and therefore do not have an EasyChair account please create it
by clicking "create an account" link at the login form. Please follow simple instructions for creating your account, then log in
to the EasyChair. You will be offered to enter the ICSF 2020 area as an author. At the New Submission page of the ICSF 2020, please
fill in the forms as requested by the instructions.
ICSF requires that every conference participant, not necessarily a speaker, but also a listener, registers at the conference.
A non-dedicated registration service is provided for this step. We need your registration for:
Personalizing your conference information bundle, including the badge with your name and affiliation
Offer additional services to you: e.g. visa support, hostel booking, official invitation letter preparation
Collecting statistical information about session attendance, including social events - for proper resource planning
Letting the other conference participants know who you are to facilitate networking
Please choose the right item for you to complete the registration, the registration fee is listed as follows:
Research articles should contain sufficient background and motivation and they should present
proofs, where applicable, or at least outlines of such in sufficient detail to enable an expert to complete
them. Thus summaries and mere announcements of papers appearing elsewhere cannot be included,
although more detailed versions of e.g. a highly technical contribution may well be published
Surveys should cover a sufficiently broad topic, and should normally
not just review the author's own recent research. In the case of surveys proofs of results may not be necessary.
Changes of authorship or in the order of authors are not accepted after acceptance of a contribution
to the proceedings.
Requests to add or delete authors at revision stage or after publication is a serious matter, and may
be considered only after receipt of written approval from all authors and detailed explanation about
the role/deletion of the new/deleted author. The decision on accepting the change rests with the
volume editor(s)of the proceedings.
