Abstract submission

Paper selection will be based on independent reviews of extended abstracts. Abstracts should consist of a maximum of two pages (A4) of text, and, where appropriate, an additional one page (maximum) of figures and tables. Abstracts must clearly summarise the nature and rationale of the proposed work and should contain sample results, major conclusions and possibly a statement about further results that should be included in the final paper. Abstracts should be submitted electronically and uploaded to the TSFP13 conference management website using the link below.

Copyright: The copyright of TSFP manuscripts remains with the authors, who are free to submit their work for publication in an archival journal, citing the TSFP manuscript as preliminary results. Archival journals may also invite selected authors of TSFP manuscripts to submit their work for publication in special issues.

Full paper submission

For accepted abstracts, presentations at the symposium require the authors to submit a full paper, restricted to 6 pages in length. To this end, templates (including guidelines for preparing the documents) will be provided in due course.

Each full paper submission will be required to be supported by a unique registration payment. For instance, if two accepted papers (e.g. Submission IDs 1 and 2) are co-authored by A and B, either A or B should support ID 1, and the other should support ID 2. Papers without unique supporting registrations will be removed from the program.

Submission of full papers will need to be done after completing the payment of supporting registration.


MS Word or LaTeX templates for the extended abstract (max 2 pages + 1 page of figures/tables) are available below. Formatting instructions are included in the templates.
