Call for Paper is CLOSED

Thank you to all who have submitted their contributions!

The Congress theme is “Delivering Future Cities Now”  and it will be explored and discussed through the following TOPICS

Paper submission

  • Technical paper
  • Scientific paper
  • Commercial paper

IMPORTANT NOTE: For Glasgow we are using a streamlined submission process for all types of paper. It will be not required an initial “draft” paper, authors can directly submit a “complete” paper, up to 10 pages (please provide as much content as possible to allow the reviewer to judge your paper appropriately) using the Congress Paper Template provided online. For accepted papers there will be no requirement to make a further submission although the authors will be able to update their paper, add diagrams or tables of results etc. As before, for conditionally accepted papers authors will need to revise their paper addressing the reservations of the reviewers when submitting a final version of the document.

We would like to stress that the 10-page “complete” paper submission is not compulsory – you can still send in a 2- or 3-page (approximately)  paper which will be judged for acceptance giving you plenty of time to complete the preparation for the final text. 

Special Interest Session (SIS) submission – Deadline 13 January 2016

IMPORTANT NOTE: The pressure for Special Interest Session slots has been steadily increasing and we are now over-bid by at least 3:1. To ensure a wide a range of Sessions as possible, and to give an equal opportunity to all potential session bidders, the European Programme Committee has reluctantly decided that the criteria for selection must be tightened and the following constraints will apply:

  • Bids will not be considered unless they give the names, e-mail addresses of at least 3 CONFIRMED speakers.
  • If a majority of speakers named in the Preliminary Programme are not registered 4 weeks before the Congress then the Session will be closed and the slot given to a candidate from the reserve list.
  • Any one individual will only be allowed one slot as either Moderator or Speaker.
  • Preference will be given to round-table or ‘panel’ types of session which it is recognised require more preparation by the organisers.
  • The EPC reserves the right to combine provisionally approved sessions and review the speakers for the resulting session.

Whilst the programme committee will endeavour to offer submitters who meet the selection criteria their preferred format of presentation, this cannot be guaranteed and final selection decision of the programme committee will stand.
