Instructions for Authors:
Paper files must be submitted as PDF files. Only PDF files complying with the IFAC style rules and PDF requirements are admissible. Paper file compliance is the author’s responsibility, as the organizers will not modify an incorrect PDF file after it has been produced. One paper should not exceed 6 pages. However, up to 8 pages will be accepted. If one paper includes over 6 pages, the representative author will be charged from the 7th page (100€ per one page).
For paper formatting instructions and PDF specification instructions, as well as support packages in both latex and word (featuring template files) can be found in:
Information for IFAC Authors
Please note that all IFAC conferences require A4 paper size. It is important to note that PDF paper size is determined by your PDF converter. Even if you start out with A4 in your word processor, your PDF converter will have to be set to create an A4 output. You are strongly encouraged to use the IFAC paper upload website feature enabling the authors to check whether the submitted pdf file satisfies the specified requirements.
All fully reviewed papers presented at the IFAC NGCUV15 technical meeting (conforming to IFAC publication requirements) will be published in electronic form after the meeting on the IFAC-PaperIFACrsOnLine.net website.
The copyright of all papers must be transferred to IFAC before they can be accepted for presentation at the event. No paper can be included in IFAC-PapersOnLine unless its Copyright Transfer Form has been received. IFAC copyright conditions are the following:
“All publication material submitted for presentation at an IFAC-sponsored meeting (Congress, Symposium, Conference, Workshop) must be original and hence cannot be already published, nor can it be under review elsewhere. The authors take responsibility for the material that has been submitted. IFAC-sponsored conferences will abide by the highest standard of ethical behavior in the review process as explained on the Elsevier webpage (http://www.elsevier.com/journal-authors/author-rights-and-responsibilities), but see also the Vancouver protocol, and author information (http://labs.elsevier.com/blog/what-makes-an-author-authorship-contributorship-and-micro-attribution) and the authors will abide by the IFAC publication ethics guidelines (http://www.ifac-control.org/events/organizers-guide/PublicationEthicsGuidelines.pdf/view).
Accepted papers that have been presented at an IFAC meeting, will be published in the proceedings of the event using the open-access IFAC-PapersOnLine (http://www.ifac-papersonline.net/). To this end, the author(s) must confer the copyright to IFAC when they submit the final version of the paper through the paper submission process. See also http://www.ifac-papersonline.net/static/copyright.html for the personal permission rights to reproduce the published paper on a personal or institutional www-site.”
