Papers’ Guideline

Abstract

Before a scientific paper can be submitted for possible inclusion in the Conference Program, an abstract of it must be submitted to the Review Committee for their consideration. It is not possible to overemphasize the importance of the abstract since it is the introduction of the paper to the Review Committee and they will decide whether to read the entire article based upon the abstract. The Conference requirements for an abstract follow:

be concise and accurately summarize the paper by concentrating on the most important ideas only (four or five at the most);
a maximum of 50 lines/3000 characters is permitted. Character count must include any headings, keywords, and the author’s name;
only report on the work and do not evaluate of the results;
use English and clearly and coherently write the abstract;
submission must be via the author’s personal profile on the Conference website.

The Conference Review Committee will evaluate all submitted abstracts and approve or reject papers based upon the information in their abstract. Authors of approved papers will be invited to submit their entire manuscripts for further consideration. Authors who do not receive approval emails should check their spam folders to make certain an email was not received because it was marked as spam.

Full Paper Submission

Once the abstract is approved, authors must prepare and send their complete manuscript to the conference following these requirements:

1. Written in English language as a word processing file using MS Word for Windows (.DOC or DOCX);
2. Papers must be submitted via the author’s profile;
3. must not exceed 8 typewritten pages including the title, author(s) name(s), abstract, full text, charts, drawings and literature review.
4. A long paper (+ 69 euro) has a maximum of 12 typewritten pages (including title, author(s) names, the abstract, full text, charts, drawings and literature).
5. Extra-long paper (+ 139 euro) is a maximum of 16 typewritten pages (including title, author(s) name(s), the abstract, full text, charts, drawings and literature).

The Final Manuscript

Writing an effective scientific paper does not need to be difficult. A good rule of thumb is to write your paper as if your reading audience is composed of people who know about your field in general but do not already know what you did. In addition to the science, pay attention to the writing style and remember your purpose is to communicate your findings clearly to your reader. Finally, format and prepare your manuscript following the conference requirements:

Text Format

Absolute compliance with the conference paper formatting style is required.
– Margin format: Top, 3 cm; Left/Right, 3 cm; Bottom, 3 cm; empty Header/Footer, 1.5cm.
– Font: Times New Roman, size 12.
– Alignment: Justified
– Line Spacing: Single; line space before a paragraph, 6pt,
– Page orientation: portrait.

Images/Figures

Every image or figure used in the text must be in grayscale and numbered with unique sequence. If you have different shapes (lines, rectangles, circles, squares, rectangles, arrows and etc.) or text box objects, they must be grouped as one element.

Tables

Tables are to be numbered sequentially using Arabic numerals. Table headings are to be placed above the table and aligned left. If necessary to make a table fit onto a single page reduce the font size to 11 pt or 10 pt but no smaller. Tables must be placed next to text that is relevant to the table. Do not change to landscape orientation to make a large table fit on single page. Instead, save the table as an image and reduce it so that it fits vertically on a portrait-oriented page.

References

Every reference cited in the text must be included in the references list, under the References heading, at the end of the text. Similarly, every entry in the reference list must be quoted at least once in the text with indices in the form of [1], [2], …, etc. The names of all the authors are to be included in the reference list. The maximum number of quoted references allowed is 15 for an 8-page article. Articles containing more than 15 references will be returned to their authors for correction.

By submitting an abstract and/or a full paper, every author agrees to the following:

– The Author declares that the manuscript is original in its present form and has not been published elsewhere in any form; it has not been submitted to any journal or proceedings.
– If the abstract and/or complete manuscript is accepted for publication in the Aeon Conference Proceedings, it will not be submitted elsewhere for publication.
– The Author(s) is responsible for the research done and for the results described in the paper.
– If the paper is a joint work of several authors (co-authors), the Author responsible for submission of the article declares that any person named as an author (co-author) of the paper is aware of the provisions of this agreement and has agreed to them and to be included in the paper.
– The Author(s) warrants that the article does not infringe upon any copyright, contains no libelous or otherwise unlawful statements, and does not infringe upon the rights of others.
