Call for Paper
Conference papers will be selected through a two-phase, double blind peer review process, which will be used both for long abstracts and full papers. Initial submissions must be anonymous and must not contain the name(s) of the author(s) or any reference to their affiliation. This information should be included only in the camera-ready paper after the full paper acceptance notification. The language of the conference is English, and all submissions must be in English. Submissions that do not comply with the submission rules will be excluded from the evaluation process and proceedings publication.
Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings if (at least one of) the authors register to the conference to present the work.
Long Abstract Submission | Deadline 01-10-2019
At first stage, authors are invited to submit a long abstract and keywords using the ‘SUBMIT!’ link provided on the conference website (cumulusroma2020.org). The long abstract should be no longer than 600 words, with an additional space provided for bibliographical references. Please omit any references to the author(s) or the institutions they are affiliated with.
Full Paper Submission | Deadline 01-02-2020
After the notification of the abstract acceptance, full papers should be submitted according to a template, which will be provided to the Authors. The length of the full paper should not exceed 4000 words (excluding references) and follow APA publication style for in-text citation and reference lists (www.apastyle.org). At this stage, files should be submitted in PDF version and should be anonymous without containing the name(s) of the author(s) or any reference to their affiliation. Documents that do not comply with this rule will be excluded from the evaluation process. Once reviewed, the accepted submissions will receive comments for necessary revisions for the final camera‐ready submission.
Camera-ready Paper Submission | Deadline 30-04-2020
After the notification of full paper acceptance, the final (camera-ready) version of the full paper should be submitted in both MSWord (.doc or .docx) and PDF format according to the conference template.
