Demonstrators and Products Tracks
PACT has made provision in 2018 for display and demonstration of working software and hardware that are relevant to African manufacturing base and learning environment. We will also consider working prototypes from university students, staff and industry.
Original research papers containing new research findings which have not been submitted concurrently to any other publication outlets such as conferences, Journals and books are sought from authors. Full length papers must be limited to six A4 single-line spacing pages (10 point font size minimum) and formatted following the Springer conference paper format. Student papers are also limited to between three and four A4 single-line spacing pages.
PACT has adopted the Springer referencing format for all its publications. Paper submission is through Easy Chair via the conference site at PACT 2019 Easy Chair Submission
Authors should access Easy Chair through the conference site for all submissions and by all means try not to email papers directly to Track or Conference Chair persons as this makes reviewing of your papers messy and difficult. All papers submitted to the conference will be reviewed by at least two international reviewers.
Papers which are registered and presented during the conference will be included in the conference proceedings with an ISBN to facilitate access and referencing.
Post Conference Publications:
All papers accepted and presented at the conference will be submitted to Compendex and SCOPUS for indexing. Reviewed papers which meet the Springer requirements and presented during the conference will be forwarded to the Springer for consideration for inclusion in the Springer Digital Repository. Papers will also be submitted to iqproceedings.org for inclusion in their conferences database for worldwide access and indexing.
Despite the above undertaking, authors whose papers are found to be technically relevant and suitable as possible journal publications will be invited to extend their PACT conference papers to full length journal papers of not less than 12 pages. Such extensions must ensure that the extended paper is clearly significantly different in contents from the paper presented during the conference.
They will be further reviewed and if the extended papers are accepted by the Journals they will be included in special 2019 issues of:
a) African Journal of Information and Communication b) African Journal of Computing & ICT c) Computing and Information Systems Journal
d) African Journal of Informatics e) Journal of Machine to Machine
