Length of paper: Minimum 5 pages and maximum 10 pages. Full papers are to be submitted in Pdf format.
There is no specific paper format for i-SMaRT Conference, however the authors have to follow the template of journals of their choice.
For any doubts or clarifications, please contact Dr. Harish T.M at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mr. Jiju P.P at email@example.com or Mr. Unnikrishnan S Nair at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Authors should submit their abstracts and full papers online via the link given below.
To submit your papers, log in to the submission Web page for i-SMaRT 2023: Paper Submission Link i-SMaRT 2023.
Please upload your abstract/full papers following the submission guidelines given below.
PS: There is no specific template to be followed unless you opt for any of our partner journals. In that case, authors may follow the standard templates provided by the journals. Template and guidelines for article submission can be referred from their respective webpages, links to which are included in the publications page.
Submissions must include title, abstract, author affiliation with email address and keywords.
Regular papers should present novel perspectives within the general scope of the conference.
Short papers (Work-in-Progress) are an opportunity to present preliminary or interim results.
Posters are intended for ongoing research projects, concrete realizations, or industrial applications/projects presentations.
All registered papers are double blind reviewed and suitable papers shall be recommended for publication in any of our partner journals.
The paper length should not exceed 10 pages. However, the authors can extend the number of pages by paying an additional page charge (based on the journal opted for publication).
Registration fees mentioned on the website are for a maximum of 6 authors per paper. Additional authors need to pay an escalated registration fee of 1000 Rs per author irrespective of the category.
Literature reviews/survey papers shall be considered if they present a new perspective or clearly benefit the field. To be published, such papers must go beyond a review of the literature to define the field in a new way or highlight exciting new technologies or areas of research.
The organizers of this conference regard plagiarism as a serious professional misconduct. All submissions will be screened for plagiarism and if identified, the submissions will be summarily rejected.
All submitted papers will be subjected to a "similarity test" by URKUND/Turnitin Software.
Manuscripts suffering a 20% similarity score will be examined and those that are deemed unacceptable will be rejected/withdrawn without a formal review.
Copyright violation is viewed seriously, and authors are encouraged to request for permission from the copyright holder if images/tables or text are reused from other sources in your paper. Always give due credit and references in your paper.
A submission SHOULD NOT be intended to get reviews from the Program Committee for the sole purpose of improving the quality of manuscript. A submission implies that the author intends to ultimately register the paper upon favorable response from the conference organizers. Withdrawal of accepted papers are not solicited, and such papers shall not be submitted elsewhere without significant changes or improvements.
