Abstract should briefly describe the study’s objectives, methodology, and results, or the text’s main points. Abstracts must not contain any personal information.

  2. Abstract review and full paper submission:
    1. Abstract review: After formal review by the Conference Advisory Committee, all submissions will be sent to reviewers through a double-blind reviewing process. The list of papers that pass review will be announced on the conference website on Thursday, October 3, 2019, and the conference program will then be drawn up.
    2. Submission: If an abstract passes review, the author will receive email notification along with the reviewer’s comments. Authors must upload the first draft of the full paper (8,000 to 15,000 words) to the conference website with responses to the reviewer’s comments before Monday, October 21, 2019. Download the form for full paper submission
  3. Paper review and publication
    1. Initial review of the full text: The Conference Advisory Committee will select two reviewers to conduct a double-blind review.
      • The reviewers will make one of four recommendations:
        1. Accept for publication
        2. Accept for publication following revision
        3. Review again after revision
        4. Decline and return to author
      • If the two reviewers do not reach consensus, a third reviewer will be asked to carry out a double-blind review.
    2. Full-text review: If the reviewers recommend “Review again after revision,” the author shall be notified by January 31, 2020. The revised manuscript shall be reviewed for the second time by the same reviewers, who shall then make one of three recommendations:
      • Accept the revised manuscript for publication
      • Accept for publication following further revision in accordance with comments
      • Decline and return to author
    3. Editing and revision: The author is solely responsible for proofing the manuscript following revision. The conference is only responsible for checking the formatting.
    4. Publication of the full paper: Once the full text has undergone double-blind review and has been accepted for publication, it will be included in the conference proceedings, two copies of which will be presented to the author. No fees will be paid to the author.
