Call for Abstracts
Abstract Preparation and Submission Instructions
The abstract should give a clear synopsis of the proposed content of the full paper. It should be between 300 to 500 words in length and contain text only. Abstracts must be in English and should be checked for errors in spelling and grammar before submission. The abstract, including the paper title, authors, affiliations, and keywords are to be uploaded through the online abstract submission page.
All poster and oral presenters have to be registered (paid) for the conference by the time of full paper submission.
A guide to preparing papers for submission to ACAM 7 is available. All papers submitted for the proceedings of ACAM 7 must follow this guide.
It is the authors’ responsibility to ensure their paper satisfies these guidlelines and the Organising Committee reserves the right to reject a paper if it does not do so. The paper and abstract must be written in English and submitted in PDF format through the ACAM 7 website. The abstract should offer a concise summary of the paper and should be between 300 to 500 words in length and contain text only.
The title, authors, affiliations, corresponding author, abstract and keywords of each paper will be printed in a Book of Abstracts. The full paper will be published in an electronic version of the proceedings. Both the Book of Abstracts and the electronic version of the proceedings will be provided to delegates at the Congress. The proceedings will also be published through the informit database.
12 papers will be selected to be published in the Australian Journal of Multi-Disciplinary Engineering. In addition, selected papers/presentations will be invited to submit a paper for a special issue of the Fatigue and Fracture Engineering Materials and Structures Journal.
A maximum of two papers per registration will be accepted. All poster and oral presenters have to be registered and paid for the conference by the time of full paper submission.
The deadline for submission of the full paper is July 18th 2012 and for the final manuscript by September 23rd 2012.
All abstracts will be reviewed by the Organising Committee for proposed technical content and to check that the topics are within the scope of ACAM 7. Authors of approved abstracts will then be invited to submit a full paper. Applicants will be notified by email of their abstract status in April 2012. The deadline for submission of full papers is 18th July 2012.
To ensure a high-quality congress, all papers will be peer reviewed by members of the ACAM 7 Technical Committee. Final acceptance of the papers will be contingent on this review process. The peer review status of the papers will be available by mid of September 2012, and the final submission date for revised papers is 23rd September 2012.
Authors of approved papers will be invited to give an oral or poster presentation as part of the Congress. A maximum of two papers per registration will be enforced. The Organising Committee reserves the right to reject for presentation any paper that does not meet content or presentation expectations.
