Call for Papers

Call for Papers

Original contributions are invited from prospective authors with interests in the indicated conference topics and related areas of application. All contributions should be high quality, original and not published elsewhere or submitted for publication during the review period. The papers can be theoretical, practical and application oriented on the conference tracks. Every submission must identify the conference track which best relates to the contents of the paper. Papers will be peer reviewed by the International Program Committee, and may be accepted for long and short presentation.

We solicit original research and technical papers not published elsewhere in the following three categories.

  1. Full Papers (up to 15 pages)
  2. Short Papers (up to 7 pages)
  3. Poster Papers (A poster is a two-page manuscript that describes late-breaking or otherwise novel and interesting results to the overall community at large. )

Full and Short papers will be published in Springer proceedings, however, poster papers will be included in the book of abstract only.


Best Paper Awards

The Best Paper Awards will be given to the authors which will be selected by the committee among the papers presented in MIND-2019. The Best Paper Awards Committee will be recommended by the advisory committee and the nominees will be evaluated based on scientific contribution, writing/presentation style, reviewers comments etc. The “Best Paper Awards” will be given for each track/discipline in the following three categories.

  1. Outstanding paper
  2. Excellent paper
  3. Best paper

Proceeding Publication

All the accepted and presented papers will be published by Springer Nature (confirmed). Extended versions of the best papers selected from this conference will be invited to be published in the special issues from some of the high repute SCI/Scopus/Web of Science indexed journals. The details in this regard will be announced later.

Paper review, Presentation and Publication

  • The conference review process takes place after the submission of full papers. Each paper is reviewed through employing a double-blind peer review process. The double-blind review process ensures that both authors and reviewers remain anonymous during the peer review process.
  • Full papers are submitted for peer review have to adhere to the conference format and address the conference themes, sub-themes and conference focus areas. Expert are selected to perform the reviews from reputed national and international institutions. A list of the peer reviewers will be included in the conference proceedings.
  • All full papers submitted to the conference are subjected to a rigorous double-blind peer review process. This process takes place prior to both the verbal presentation at the conference and the publication of the Conference Proceedings. Authors receive feedback in the form of a peer review report. The full paper peer review process and the outcomes presented in the review reports are monitored and verified by a review committee.
  • At least one author must be registered for the Conference in order for the paper to be included in the conference programme and considered for publication in the Conference Proceedings. A 15 minute slot will be allocated to each paper in the conference programme. A verbal presentation is delivered during the conference and provides the opportunity to conference delegates to engage with research topic.
