Preparation of papers
When submitting a paper, the authors are responsible for the paper’s originality, correctness of its subject-matter, language and formal attributes, and for applying all requirements that are specified in the conference paper template (see table below).
The paper should present the results of original scientific research, ideally arisen from the processing of primary data by appropriate methods. Papers containing no original research results, e.g. introduction of educational projects, other short communications, reviews, etc., can be presented in the conference sessions (oral or poster presentation), but cannot be published in the conference proceedings.
The structure of the paper should consist of the following sections: Title, Abstract, Key Words, Introduction, Material and Methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgements, References. The paper length should be up to 7 pages in total (there is a fee of 20 EUR or 500 CZK per additional page).
In introduction, the paper must provide a short review of a current state in the area of the paper’s aim. The paper should refer to significant sources, particularly scientific journals and conference proceedings listed in the databases of ISI Web of Knowledge.
Harvard referencing convention is required. See paper template for common examples of its application. All referred sources from the list of references must be mentioned in the paper as a continuous quotation and vice versa.
Submission of papers
The papers including all figures and tables should be submitted via electronic submission form. It is available to authors after registration and login.
All papers are submitted to a double-blind peer review process before publication. Reviewer’s overall recommendation can be as follows:
- Accept the paper. The paper is forwarded to the Programme Committee to be accepted for publication in the conference proceedings, no changes are required.
- Accept the paper with a minor revision. The paper is returned to the author to do some small corrections, rather technical than in contents.
- Accept the paper with a major revision. The paper is returned to the author to improve the quality of the paper significantly.
- Reject the paper. If both reviewers select this option, the paper will not be published in the conference proceedings.
Reviewers’ suggestions and comments as well as other comments by a supervising Programme Committee Member will be available in the conference submission system. The corresponding author will be informed by e-mail as soon as the review process finishes. If a revision is required, the author should submit a revised version of his/her paper through the submission system again.
The revised version of the paper should be accompanied by another file, where the author replies to all reviewers’ comments and describes all changes in the paper (see the template of the Replies to reviewers' comments below). It is author’s right to refuse some reviewers’ comments; in this case, he/she has to clarify his/her viewpoints in this accompanying file, too.
