Submissions for IFKAD 2017


Full paper submission deadline: 10 April 2017

Once you received the acceptance letter and invitation to submit the full paper, we kindly ask you to apply following guidelines.
You can also download this FULL PAPER FORMAT EXAMPLE which will help you to format your paper correctly. We kindly ask you to send your contribution in Word format (.doc or .docx).

Full papers of accepted abstracts will be reviewed by Scientific Committee. The Committee will request further revisions for those papers which are not aligned to the following guidelines.

The submission of full paper must be done using upload electronic procedure not later than 10 April 2017 in order to be included in IFKAD 2017 Proceedings.

Since 2015, IFKAD implements some important changes in formatting paper for the conference. Full papers must have max 5.000 words (including abstract, keywords, figures and tables and references). The length of the short structured abstract is 400 words max. The reason for this innovation is that ever more journals only accept conference-based articles if they are substantially different from the conference paper they are based on. Some journals request that the journal article is more than 50% different from the conference paper. By accepting shorter full papers we facilitate the development of your work into journal articles.

Full paper manuscripts should include:

  •      - Cover sheet - including title, name, affiliation, address and email address for each author, indicating the corresponding author
  •     - Short Structured Abstract - abstract must be structured in following paragraphs: Purpose - Design/Methodology/Approach - Originality/Value - Practical Implications
  •     - Keywords - max 5 keywords
  •     - Paper type - indicate if your manuscript is Academic research paper or Practical paper
  •     - Text, acknowledgements, tables and figures (included in the text)
  •      - References
Please use 10 point size font for the main text of the paper.
!! Max length of the entire manuscript (inlcuding abstract, keywords, references, tables and figures) is 5000 words !!

Please note, that each author can present only one paper at the conference.

We also kindly invite you to read this PRESENTATION GUIDELINES which will give you all information you about presentation timing and helps you to format and structure your presentation.
