Call for papers
Full papers must be written in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, addressing one or several of the conference tracks and topics. Every submitted paper must be original and clearly highlight the nature of its technical/scientific contribution and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable. The paper review will follow a double-blind evaluation. Authors are encouraged to take under consideration the scientific ethical norms regarding plagiarism and self-plagiarism thoroughly before submitting and must make sure that their submissions do not substantially overlap work which has been published elsewhere or simultaneously submitted to a journal or another conference with proceedings.
Papers that contain any form of plagiarism will be rejected without reviews.
Authors can submit their research paper in one of the following forms:
- The full paper consists of a paper with 5-6 pages.
- The short paper consists of a paper with up to 4 pages.
All papers must be submitted through the online submission facilities and should follow the instructions and templates that can be found under Guidelines and Templates. After the paper submission has been successfully completed, authors will receive an automatic confirmation e-mail.
Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple events, submission of previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud. SEAHF 2019, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals, prohibits these practices and may, on the recommendation of a program chair, take action against authors who have committed them. In some cases, program committees may share information about submitted papers with other conference chairs and journal editors to ensure the integrity of papers under consideration. If a violation of these principles is found, sanctions may include but are not limited to, barring the authors from submitting to or participating in future conferences for a set period, contacting the authors' institutions, and publicizing the details of the case.
