Event Paper Process

1. Submit an Abstract

The abstract is what readers review first in order to decide whether the paper is relevant to their work and whether the paper deserves further study. The abstract should provide clear and concise statements on the contents of the paper. It should contain information on what the work is about; how the work is different from other previously-published, related work; a brief discussion on the novelty of the work; the methodology that has been followed; and the theory that has been used to complete the work. The abstract is a self-standing document and should not include references, footnotes, figures (or references to them), or tables (or references to them). It should include brief findings, solutions, impacts, and concluding remarks of the work. The abstract should be written in one paragraph and it should be less than 250 words.
