Authors of abstracts that are accepted for inclusion in AGA2017 will be asked to submit a full paper version. Authors are fully responsible for the content/originality of the paper and for the English language quality of the text. Therefore, we suggest before sending in your manuscript, the complete text of the manuscript to be checked or proof-read by an English language expert.
Manuscript Text Formatting
The manuscript must contain the following essential elements: The manuscript should contain: Title of the paper; Name, affiliation, and email of each author; Keywords (3-5 words); E-mail address and telephone/fax numbers of the corresponding author.
Title Support: Author names, scientific/academic degrees and titles, affiliations (if available – name of the institution, postal address, the e-mail address of each author) Abstract (maximum 500 words) Keywords (maximum 6 keywords) Main text (A4 page size, margins of 2.5 cm, Times Roman 12-point font, text fully justified, 1,5-line spacing) Conclusion Acknowledgements (acknowledgements should be collected in a separate section at the end of the manuscript before the references) Reference list. All references mentioned in the Reference list should be cited in the text, and vice versa. References can be in any style or format as long as the style is consistent. However, references should contain: author(s) name(s), journal title/book title, chapter title/article title, year of publication, volume number/book chapter and the pagination must be present.
Manuscripts should be written in good English using either UK or US spelling. Authors are responsible for the accuracy of content. The length of the manuscript is limited to ten (10) pages including illustrations and tables. The preferred length is 8 pages.
As the Conference proceedings will be printed in black and white, it is the author’s responsibility to ensure that all coloured illustrations (figures, photographs, graphs, images) are readable when translated to black and white in the printed proceedings. Illustrations should contain only English labels and be prepared in the final published size, not oversized or undersized. Illustrations can be placed either next to the relevant text in the manuscript, or on separate page(s) at the end. Each illustration should have a caption.
Graphics, figures, photographs and illustrations should be embedded in your digital file. In addition, where possible, all graphs, tables, photographs and illustrations should also be included as separate files. Images should have a resolution of at least 300 dpi.
Tables should be submitted as editable text and not as images. Tables can be placed either next to the relevant text in the manuscript, or on separate page(s) at the end. Tables should be numbered consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Each table should have a caption.
Equations should be prepared using the equation editor in MS Word. Any equations that have to be displayed separately from the text should be numbered consecutively.
A cover letter stating explicitly that the manuscript is being submitted for publication in the Conference proceedings must accompany the manuscript. In addition, the corresponding author should state if the manuscript is to be formally refereed.
Also, the cover letter should be included biography of the presenting author. The biography is limited to a maximum of 300 words.
Conference presentation and proceedings.
Regardless of whether submitted papers are formally refereed, all authors whose abstracts are considered suitable will have their papers included in AGA2017 conference and the printed proceedings. The papers will be checked to confirm their authenticity. The proceedings will be included in the index of scientific citation. The conference program will be constructed on the received papers. The presentations might be only oral or oral with Power Point Presentation. The duration of the presentation has to be no more than 15 min. Since overall time for paper presentations at the conference is limited, it is possible that, due to time constraints, the abstracts that have been recommended for publication might not be included in the AGA2017 program for presentation.
Thank you very much for participating in the IAMU AGA2017.
