ICFM 2020 solicits papers in the following three categories:
- Long papers: technical papers reporting original research or survey papers
- Short papers: papers reporting promising work-in-progress, system descriptions, position papers on controversial issues, or survey papers providing a synthesis of some current research trends
- Extended abstracts of recently published work in a relevant journal or top-tier conference
Regular research papers should be at most 10 pages (including references, figures, and tables). Short papers should be between 5 and 8 pages. Extended abstracts should be at most 2 pages and should reference the originally published work.
Note that accepted papers up to 6 pages will be published with no additional charge. Exceeding pages will be charged an additional fee.
Accepted long and short papers will be published into the conference proceedings. Authors of an accepted long or short paper will be expected to give a presentation at the conference. Authors of accepted abstracts will be expected to present their work during the conference, but the extended abstracts will not be published in the proceedings (they will be made available in a separate booklet).
At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference and present the paper. Only registered and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
Accepted papers will be included into IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering (ISSN: 1757-899X), which have been indexed in the past by Scopus, Ei Compendex, etc. This makes the proceedings with very high visibility.
