Instructions for authors

We recommend that authors read our Publishing Policies & Ethics, and use our editorial guidelines and templates to prepare their article.

Policy on re-use

Conference papers may be updated, or enhanced, for further publication as a regular journal article, including submission to journals not published by EDP Sciences. Journal articles derived from work previously published in conference proceedings must contain a substantial amount of new or previously unpublished results. The question of whether there is sufficient additional material to warrant a new publication, is a matter for individual journals to decide. To enable informed decisions by journals, we recommend the authors to supply their chosen journal with a copy of their proceedings article, accompanied with a clear statement describing the material reproduced. In addition, a journal article derived from a proceedings paper must include a citation to this proceedings paper.

Article-processing charges

There are no article processing charges for authors; all costs incurred are the responsibility of the conference organizers.
