Author Guidelines

Page count for submitted manuscript should be between 4 and 6, with references and abstract. Article submission is done by electronic article submission. For article submission, it is necessary to register online.

For preparing your paper, please use one of the reference templates (MS Word or LaTeX) and follow the instructions from respective document and Authors Guidelines. In case of using LaTeX file format, please submit all files in one archive.


ARTICLE STRUCTURE

Title

Title should be such, that it exactly, briefly and clearly describes the issues addressed by authors. Use of unexplained abbreviations in the Title is strictly prohibited. The total number of characters should not exceed 75 including spaces.

Author names and affiliations

Due to blind review process, please provide blinded copy of your conference paper (no author names, no affiliations) for initial review. Only after your paper has been accepted, please complete your paper with name of author(s) and identify affiliation (Name of the institute, City, State/Province, Country).

Abstract

Abstract should be written in structured form with the following parts: Motivation, Problem definition, Approach, Results, Conclusion. The word count should be between 100 and 150 words. It is required to use standard terms, while abbreviations are to be excluded (except well-known abbreviations such as ICAO, IATA, etc.). Abstract should not include any references. Parts of the abstract (as mentioned above) should include:

Motivation – e.g. what lead to addressing the issue(s) and where does the necessity for gaining new knowledge and results come from.

Problem Definition – e.g. what specific issue (problem) is addressed. What specifically is the work focused on (general approach or specific situations).

Approach – e.g. how was the issue (problem) specifically addressed or what was the approach to it. What kind(s) of method(s) were used in addressing the issue (problem) (simulation, analytical model, prototype, data analysis...). Which important variables were taken into consideration, which were measured or ignored, etc.

Results – e.g. brief presentation of essential results. If applicable, concrete numerical results can be presented as well.

Conclusion – e.g. what are or could be implementations of achieved discoveries. Is it possible to generalize the achieved results, or are they specific for one given field?

Body of the article

Names of article sections and subsections are for author(s) consideration. Authors are asked to number the sections and subsections (1, 2, 2.1, 2.2, 3, …). It is not to be used on abstract, references and acknowledgements. Article structure should be as follows (names of sections do not have to be the same).

Introduction

Introduction should mainly consist of research (worldwide), referring to articles published in the past addressing similar topic and exact stating of work intentions. This section starts with broader overview and subsequently narrows down to the specific issue(s). Introduction should be understood as an upside down pyramid, where it is necessary to start with general (large) overview and then work towards formulation of claims or hypothesis, which should be the last part of Introduction. It is necessary to provide reader with reasons for addressing the issue and why is the study an inevitable part of research in given field.

Materials and methods

It is necessary to describe in detail the approach to defined issue (problem).

Results

It is necessary to clearly present the results of solving the issue (problem), which the article addresses. This is a description of results, not a discussion.

Discussion

Presented results should be discussed and if possible compared to similar studies, addressing similar issues.

Conclusion

Besides general conclusions, provide potential contribution(s), limitation(s) and recommendation(s).

Acknowledgements

This section has to be placed at the end of the article, before References. This section is not numbered. Provide information about financial support of publication (grant, etc.) and all individuals that are not listed as authors, but participated in a way of, for example: proof reading, language check, consultations, etc.

References

Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended to be put in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. Web page references will be accepted only minimally (max. 2). References in text have a form as follows:

  • (Author 1989)
  • (Author et al. 1989) for more than 2 authors
  • (Author 1989, Author & Author 1987)

In the text, place the authors’ last names (without initials) and the date of publication in parentheses. At the end of the paper, list all references in alphabetical order. If several works by the same author are cited, entries should be chronological:

Larch, A.A. 1996a. Development ...

Larch, A.A. 1996b. Facilities ...

Larch, A.A. 1997. Computer ...

Larch, A.A. & Jensen, M.C. 1996. Effects of ...

Larch, A.A. & Smith, B.P. 1993. Alpine ...


Form of references should be as follows:

Journal article

FIGURES AND TABLES

Each Table and Figure must have a caption, where each caption is original (non-repeating) and also fully describing the figure/table. Captions of Figures cannot be integrated in the figure. Figure caption belong below the Figure and Table captions belong above the Table.

Each Figure and Table has to be referred to in the text, in this form:

  • References in the text: Figure 1, Figures 2-4, 6,8a, b (not abbreviated)
  • References between parentheses: (Fig. 1), (Figs2-4, 6, 8a, b) (abbreviated)

Figure quality should be as follows (see also Artwork Guideline):

Line art

  • Please send in as TIFF files, with a minimum resolution of 800 dpi.
  • Please send in as EPS files, absolute minimum line width of 0.5 pt, preferred minimum line width of 1 pt. Do not place bitmap images within the EPS file, but send these in as TIFF instead, as indicated above.

Please note that when graphs are produced in software such as Word or Excel, the default is to display the graph lines in color. These types of colored thin lines are difficult to reproduce, and therefore we would like to encourage the authors to submit such graphs in black & white with different types of dashed lines for total clarity.

Halftone images

  • Please send in TIFF files, with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi, or 500 dpi when it includes lettering.

Color images

  • Please send in color images as CMYK encoded (not RGB encoded; note 1) TIFF or EPS files with a minimum resolution of 600 dpi.
  • If you are only able to send in JPEG files, please make sure that these are saved at the highest possible quality, with absolute minimum compression. (Please see note 2 below).

Note 1: Please note that RGB encoded color images will allow for more colors than CMYK encoded images, which you can reproduce (on paper). These are only good for online purposes and CD-ROM/interactive productions. Before printing these images need to be converted to CMYK, and colors may appear slightly different.

Note 2: JPEG files can sometimes present problems as the compression algorithm used throws away some of the image information every time you “save” the file. When such a file needs adjustments, then more information will be lost the next time the file is saved. Therefore we would like to encourage authors to send in their files in TIFF (or EPS) format instead of JPEG.

Also make sure when images are embedded in Word to always send the original images (TIFF/EPS files) along with the article.
