Abstract Submission
Conference organisation
All Civil-Comp conferences are based on the no-abstract, no-paper, no-podium rule. This means that, in order to make a presentation, you must submit your full-length paper by the due date in the specified format. Full-length papers may be submitted only when the abstract of the paper has been accepted. So if you wish to present a paper at the conference you MUST submit an abstract of your paper by the specified date.

Please remember that submission dates are final and abstracts and papers should be submitted earlier and not later than the specified date.

Abstract preparation
  • Do not submit the same abstract to more than one conference!
  • The abstract should clearly state what is new in the paper.
  • Abstracts should be 500 to 1000 words.
  • Please format author names and affiliations in the following style:

    A.B. Smith* and J.F. Wesson+,
    *Centre for Special Studies, Tower University, London, United Kingdom,
    +Institute of Computer Generated Information, University of Western Flanders, Ostend, Belgium.

    Please note: The affiliations should be in English without abbreviations. Author's first names are abbreviated to initials.

  • The title should be maximum 80 characters long including spaces between words. It should not contain any non-alphanumeric symbols or embedded equations.
  • Keywords: 6-12 keywords should in decreasing order of importance indicate the topics addressed by your paper.
  • Corresponding author: name, title, full postal address, telephone, fax and email. Please note that this information must be accurate if you are to receive further conference information including acknowledgements, acceptances, registration information and paper preparation details. Ideally the corresponding author should be the person who will present the paper at the conference but it may be appropriate for another co-author to be the corresponding author. We can only hold the name of one corresponding author with respect to each paper.
Abstract submissions
The Civil-Comp Conference abstract submission procedure has changed from previous years. Abstracts should be submitted using the Civil-Comp Manuscript Manager (CCMM). Please submit your abstract to the correct stream: "RW2012" for Railways 2012, "CST2012" or "ECT2012" etc. Failure to submit to the correct stream may result in your paper being rejected as inappropriate for the conference you submitted it to - in error.
