Submission instructions

All submissions are handled via the PaperCept platform. This requires that every author has an PaperCept account. Accounts can be registered with the PIN Wizard.

Papers need to be formatted according to the IFAC Author Guide. It is recommended to use the LaTeX or Word template files available from the Author Guide. Draft papers are limited to 8 double-column pages. Final papers are restricted to 6 pages. Papers up to 8 pages long may be considered, but will be subject to an overlength fee.

Invited session proposals

Invited session proposals should include the session scope, aim, outline and the titles, authors and abstracts of 4 to 6 papers. The scope and aim should be at least 1-page long. Each contributor to the session must submit an invited session paper. If an invited session is not accepted, all corresponding papers will be treated as regular submissions. All invited submissions will be reviewed individually and may be accepted or rejected independent of the overall session proposal.
