Instructions for authors

Authors MUST submit their papers by email to smart2019@edusoft.ro. Submitted papers must be Microsoft Word documents, in English. Preferred maximum paper length for the papers is 20 pages, including figures.

The template for the paper is here. The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point Times New Roman font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate places, rather than at the end. The title will be bold 14-point, and the author’s name will be 12-point italic. Figures will have captions placed bottom-center, and tables will have captions placed left-top. Use a tab for indenting each paragraph and the subtitles, too. The subtitles will be bold 12-point. Please use Microsoft Word 97-2003 or newer.

We encourage the authors to use the camera ready format even for the first submission. All paper submissions will be carefully reviewed by the members of the scientific board or independent experts, who will provide a written feedback with comments and ratings. Authors will be notified of acceptance in maximum 2 weeks. Accepted manuscripts should be revised according to the comments of the reviewers and of the editors.

For questions concerning manuscript submission, contact Bogdan Patrut (bogdan AT edusoft.ro).
