Abstract Guidelines

DPS 2012 » Abstract Guidelines

Contributed papers must be in English and should report an original work. The total length, including figures and references, is two A4 format pages. Invited speakers should also prepare the abstracts that summarize their presentations. The contributions will be reproduced without reduction or modification. The authors are asked to use one of the following templates and to follow the guideline described in them. Contributed papers which do not conform to the format described in the templates may be rejected.

Each abstract should be submitted separately via the web site. Contribution submitted by email, fax, and conventional mail cannot be accepted. The submitted file must be a PDF document, and an abstract prepared using Microsoft Word or LaTeX should be converted to a PDF file. Please keep your file size below 3 MB.

The deadline for receipt of two-page abstracts (contributed papers and invited papers) is August 12, 2012 July 29, 2012. All contributed papers will be refereed by DPS Organizing Committee, and authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection of their abstracts by the beginning of September, 2012, based on scientific quality. Accepted contributions and invited papers will appear on the proceedings that will be distributed to the participants at the conference site. No publication will occur, unless the registration fee, for at least the presenting or the corresponding author, is received on or before October 16, 2012.
