The value of conference proceedings

Papers in conference proceedings contain original / primary research results, published in the form of full or short papers according to the requirements of the journal.

This type of publishing is valuable for a variety of reasons:

  • The authors of primary research in the rapidly developing fields of science often favor conference proceedings over journals because the format helps them get their work across to the global community faster
  • For providing a report on scientific meetings and in capturing snapshots of early-stage research that may later emerge in full research articles
  • For scientists starting their careers by offering what may be their first experience of peer reviewed publishing
  • And they can provide a showcase for the activities of smaller societies and for scientists in the parts of the world that may currently have a lower level of exposure in international research journals

Submission instructions

Please download the current template and example files for the CTE Workshop Proceedings and see the guidelines therein for detailed instructions.

NB: A few regions in the world have a disputed legal status. We welcome submissions also from such regions but their affiliation should then by default use the United Nations standard reference for the region. In some cases, an ambiguous reference, e.g. just the region name, may be used in the article. Editorial Board adopts a conservative (i.e. like United Nations) position about the legal status. ACNS remains neutral with regard to any jurisdictional claims.
