Authors are invited to submit full (and original research) papers (at least 6 pages) including surveys, tutorials, perspective/colloquia articles in conference topics of interest through the EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iconmasted2020) by June 14, 2020. By submitting a paper an author and all co-authors are assumed to agree with the terms of the IOP Proceedings Licence (https://publishingsupport.iopscience.iop.org/questions/iop-proceedings-licence/).
Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by three reviewers on the basis of technical quality, relevance, originality, significance, and clarity. If necessary, a fourth, additional reviewer will be involved. The Program Committee will use these reviews to determine which papers will be accepted for presentation at the conference. The result of the reviewing will be announced to the submitting authors by email, along with reviewer comments, if any.
The following paper categories are welcome:
Full research papers should contain sufficient background and motivation and they should present proofs, where applicable, or at least outlines of such in sufficient detail to enable an expert to complete them. Thus summaries and mere announcements of papers appearing elsewhere cannot be included, although more detailed versions of e.g. a highly technical contribution may well be published elsewhere later.
Surveys should cover a sufficiently broad topic, and should normally not just review the author's own recent research. In the case of surveys proofs of results may not be necessary.
Review papers are also welcomed and accepted.
Submissions should be: basically, correct and sound; original (not published elsewhere partly or in full and not submitted to other venues for simultaneous consideration); presented at the conference (at least one author of each article should attend to the conference);
in line with the scope of ICon-MaSTEd.
The number of references in the list of references should not be less than 10.
Self-citations should not exceed 10 %.
Authors are encouraged to refer to the Committee on Publishing Ethics (COPE) for all aspects of publication ethics (http://publicationethics.org/) and to strictly conform to the ethical rules described on https://www.e3s-conferences.org/about-the-journal/publishing-policies-ethics, in particular:
A single study is not split up into several parts to increase the quantity of submissions and submitted to various edited book projects or journals or to one journal over time (e.g. "salami-publishing").
No data have been fabricated or manipulated (including images) to support the manuscript's conclusions.
No data, text, or theories by others are presented as if they were the authors own ("plagiarism"). Proper acknowledgements to other works must be given (this includes material that is closely copied (near verbatim), summarized and/or paraphrased), quotation marks are used for verbatim copying of material, and permissions are secured for material that is copyrighted.
Consent to submit has been received from all co-authors and responsible authorities at the institute/organization where the work has been carried out before the work is submitted.
Authors whose names appear on the submission have contributed sufficiently to the scientific work and therefore share collective responsibility and accountability for the results.
