Please adhere to the guidelines presented below when writing and submitting your work to EMCB 2021. Due to organizational and time constraints, we are unable to accept and evaluate abstracts/papers that do not follow the guidelines provided.

General submission rules

Each author is welcome to present up to 2 submissions at EMCB 2020 conference. Any additional submission by the author will require registration and presentation by co-author(s).

Authors have three publishing options for the EMCB Proceedings:

Option 1:
Publish the full paper in the EMCB Proceedings. Authors choosing Option 1 must submit the full (up to 7500 words) paper for review. When publishing a full paper in our proceedings, please bear in mind that this can mean that you might not be able to subsequently submit your paper to certain journals that do not publish papers that have been published in proceedings. We ask that all authors operate in an entirely ethical manner and follow the guidelines and policies of the journals they submit to.

Option 2:
Publish an extended (1000 to 1500 words) abstract in the EMCB Proceedings. Authors choosing Option 2 must submit a 1000 to 1500-word abstract only. If accepted, only the extended abstract will be published in the EMCB Proceedings. Authors may submit their paper elsewhere for publication.

Option 3:
Publish an extended (1000 to 1500 words) abstract in the EMCB Proceedings, but have the full paper reviewed (in case when you want to compete for the best paper award). Authors choosing Option 3 must submit a 1000 to 1500-word abstract, and a full (up to 7500 words) paper for review, both by by December 01. If accepted, only the extended abstract will be published in the EMCB Proceedings. Authors may submit their paper elsewhere for publication.

Submission should be strictly in accordance with the provided author guidelines (please see below).

Submissions are required to be an original work that has not been previously published or accepted for publishing in a journal or conference proceedings, nor presented at another conference. Works that are under consideration for publication or presentation elsewhere are also not acceptable. EMCB reserves the right to check the submission with the anti-plagiarism software.

Co-authors’ names order is final once the submission is made, and it will be published in the program and conference proceedings exactly as indicated at the time of submission. No adjustments or changes can be accomodated after the submission deadline.

Submissions open on 15th July 2020. The deadline for submission is December 01, 2020, 23:59 GMT-5. Submitted works will undergo blind review by expert reviewers. Notification of acceptance will be done by January 11, 2021. The decision of the track chair is final. The paper submitted is the final paper and no revised version is required.
