Information for Authors

Manuscript Submission Portal

The manuscript submission portal is the same as the abstract submission portal: When ready please submit your  manuscript here. As a first time user you will need to create a new account here. However, we expect that all of you will be using their accounts already created for the abstract submission. If you have a user account created but need to reset your password do so here.

Full Paper Submission

The authors of all papers presented at the conference can submit their work for publication in the book “Traffic and Granular Flow ’17”, to be published by Springer. The length of each paper (poster and oral presentation) is strictly limited to 8 pages, including references. The current template for full papers can be found here. The deadline for submitting the full papers is 01 December 2017; submissions are to be sent in via the GW Submission System (resubmitting your work after submitting the abstract). Submit both the pdf and the LaTeX source code (including figures, bibliography files). Papers can be submitted using the GW Submission System mentioned above. In your submission, please include/keep the (modified) abstract (pdf) as well as all LaTeX source files needed for compilation (zip). Update your interest for the special issues under “Special Issues Interest”.

The template should be followed strictly. A checklist for common mistakes in the submitted files is found here. The referencing style document can be found through here.

Special Issues

Upon submission of the paper for the proceedings, please indicate whether you like to submit another, more lengthy paper for publication. Currently, the organizing committee is having one special issue in one major journal: the Journal of Intelligent Transportation Systems. Based on the interest, we will invite authors to submit their journal article, which will undergo a normal review procedure. The journal articles do not have a length restriction and should follow the format of the journals of interest.

Further information will be provided to the authors by January of 2018.

Presentations/Posters Submissions

The poster layout of the posters must not exceed the maximum size of 841mm x 1189 mm or approx. 33″ x 47″ (A0 format/36” x 48“ format). If you have not yet submitted your posters/presentations as soft copies to the conference organizers (pdf or powerpoint or keynote formats), please email them to: hamdar@gwu.edu. The presentations/posters can be then shared through the conference website.
