CISBAT 2021 Guidelines Paper submission


Full paper submission in final layout - 15 March to 30 April
Review and revision - 1 May to 15 July

After review of all abstracts submitted to CISBAT 2021, the scientific committee will inform authors of its decisions by 15 March. Authors of accepted abstracts in all categories (oral and poster, remote and on-site presentation) are invited to submit a full paper by 30 April 2021 for inclusion in a CISBAT Special Issue of IOP's Journal of Physics: Conference Series, indexed by Scopus, ISI Web of Science, EI Compendex and others (CC BY licence).

Paper preparation

Once you have received notification that your proposal has been accepted, please write a paper according to the instructions given below and submit it via the CISBAT Submission system. The paper must not exceed 6 pages (including abstract and references) and should be edited in MS Word or in LaTeX, using the template provided by IOP. Instructions must be followed strictly as any layout corrections will delay the publishing process of the entire proceedings. We aim to publish the open access proceedings online by 15 November 2021 at the latest. NB: Do not forget to add acknowledgements for funding! Funding agencies may require this to accept your publication as a deliverable.

Paper layout checklist

Please strictly follow template styles MS Word (preferred) | LaTeX (zip). Before starting, read the example document with detailed instructions. Further information is available at Journal of Physics: Conference Series author guidelines.
In short:

In short, before submitting, please check correct formatting and if necessary have your paper proofread by a native or near-native English speaker. Bear in mind that papers will be open access and referenced; the writing quality must reflect this, in the editors' and the authors' interest.


Papers will be presented during oral and poster sessions. All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings (Journal of Physics: Conference Series CISBAT Special Issue) subject to author registration valid after payment of the registration fee and paper presentation at conference. The organisers reserve the right to ask for amendments, to reassign papers to a different session or presentation mode, or to reject them. The publishers also reserve the right to reject a paper, even after acceptance by the CISBAT scientific committee, if it does not meet their publishing licence terms and conditions. Note that the paper must not have been published before (other than in a research thesis or dissertation which fact has been notified to the conference organizer in writing).

By submitting a full paper the authors agree that at least one author will attend the conference (on-site or remotely) to present it. They also agree that the paper can be made available as part of the proceedings on paper, electronic supports and the internet.

Authors are kindly requested to register by 15 June. The conference fee will be returned should a paper be refused.

A best paper prize will be awarded at the conference.
