The following guidelines apply to all submissions; papers that do not adhere to the guidelines may be disqualified from review.
All submissions must be done online to conference email email@example.com no later than the submission deadline mentioned in the conference. To avoid technical problems, early submission is strongly encouraged.
All academicians/Scholars/Students/industrialists can submit a paper or proposal for the conference. Simply send your full-paper to the conference Email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be receiving a submission acknowledgement mail. Each *submitter* (whomever is entering the individual submission) is limited to one first author peer-reviewed submission and one co-author submission.
We recommend that first authors should submit paper to the conference on behalf of their teams. All conference participants must use their own e-mail address for all submissions.
Abstracts should be 200 – 250 words in length. Your abstract may not exceed 260 words.
Your abstract should indicate a research question and clearly articulate the means and results of the conducted research.
Abstract content and paper title should not be already existing in the research literature.
Please see below for more specific paper style requirements.
A typical conference paper should include an abstract, a title, an introduction, objectives, a methods section, results/findings, discussion of findings, conclusion/recommendations, acknowledgments, and references. Authors can also have sections such as problem statement, literature review, and funding footnote.
The paper length can be up to 8 pages, including figures, tables & references.
Followed by Abstract
An Introduction that will cover the background for the research and the purpose of the research.
In case of a proposed work, it should be followed by a Literature Review, which will discuss about the previous research findings.
Then your method / methodology – e.g. did you use a case study? did you collect empirical data? did you use imperial units or metric units? whatever that may be relevant to how you collected your data and analyxed it.
The results section – here you present the results that you gained, in case of review study, focus on any new ideas that may have been generated by your research.
Discussion / analysis – like all academic work, here is where you place written text that analyse your results and contextualize them.
Conclusions – these should be short and to the point.
List of references – make sure you have some good and recent references – meaning relevant references of authoritative voices in your field. More than two Self-cited references are strictly NOT encouraged. Include the references in standard format (Follow APA/Chicago Style).
We will select papers that provide new ideas that others can both understand and benefit from. To that effect, ICSCDS evaluates papers based on 6 different criteria
Relevance to conference – ICSCDS’s sole focus is on communication and computing technologies with sustainability. While there are many related issues, papers on those issues should really only be included if they have some relevance to communication and computing technologies. Please review the conference Scope & Call for Papers.
Originality – Too often people simply redo work that has been done elsewhere. We place an emphasis on new work (although a good survey paper is certainly acceptable).
Clarity/Quality of English – Even the best ideas provide little benefit if no one can understand them because of the way in which they are presented. We look for papers that are well organized and well written.
References – Papers show their value and their originality by grounding themselves in the literature. Ensure that the paper includes references appropriate for the kind of work.
Length of Paper – Conference papers have particular limits and benefits. You should consider whether the ideas are appropriate for the length. Here, the paper length considered is 6-8 pages.
Potential Value – We hope that others will benefit from the ideas they hear about or read about at ICSCDS. Hence, we make that benefit one of the key evaluation criteria.
Comments & Feedback: To help the authors improve their proposal it is essential that every review includes some written comments too. We provide a written comment along with decisions (Acceptance, Revision, Rejection).
The review process will take around 10- 15 working days. You will hear back the decision from conference Email. In most cases, the decision will be communicated to the submitting author.
Once your paper is accepted and registered for the conference, you will be eligible to present your work at the conference.
The conference presentation schedule will be uploaded in the conference homepage (Probably 12-15 days before the conference date).
The same will be communicated to you (corresponding/submitting author) via Email.
There is no particular template for ICSCDS conference presentation. Presentation slide can be limited to 10-12
The presentation time limit is 15 minutes, which will be followed by a Q & A session for 5 minutes.
Authorship: Authors must give credit through references or notes to the original author of any idea or concept presented in the paper or proposal. This includes direct quotations and paraphrases.
Publication or presentation history: If material in your presentation has been published, presented, or accepted for publication or presentation, this must be disclosed in your paper or proposal and may make your submission ineligible, depending on the Division/Interest Group.
Conference attendance: If your submission or proposal is accepted for ICSCDS Conference, you have a commitment to register for and attend the conference and perform your assigned role. All Chairs and Respondents also make this commitment. If extenuating circumstances prevent you from attending, you should find a substitute to perform your duties and notify the program chair and Division or Interest Group contact person.
Self-plagiarism (or duplicate publications): Self-plagiarism involves an author presenting earlier published material as original and new. Self-plagiarism is often not an issue, but it must be transparent and limited. A critical issue involved in self-plagiarism is the degree to which it is clear whether the author is drawing from earlier manuscripts/research. Covert self-plagiarism occurs when the author is not transparent when drawing from earlier manuscripts or research; this can constitute a serious ethical transgression.
Types of covert self-plagiarism include:
Covert Duplicate Publication/Presentation – Submitting a paper to a journal or conference which had been previously published in a journal or conference proceedings.
Covert Redundant Publication – Occurs when some portion of previously published data is used again in a new publication with no indication that the data had been published earlier.
Covert text recycling – Reusing portions of previously published text in a new publication without a reference to the origin of the earlier published text.
Covert fragmented publication – Occurs when a complex study is broken down into two or more components and each component is analysed and published as a separate paper.
