IWSM 2015: Information for Authors
The presenting author must submit the PDF file prepared in LaTeX using the guidelines described below. The deadline for abstract submission is February 10, 2015. Abstracts must include the title of the paper, name(s) of the author(s), the affiliation(s) and an e-mail address for correspondence. The abstract should report the substantive problem and the data analysed, as well as the approach and models used. Also include a clear statement of the main results and conclusions and the key references. The workshop language is English.
Please use the provided LaTeX template to create abstracts and final manuscripts. The accepted length for first abstract submission is 4 pages.
- The presenting author must indicate whether he/she wishes to give an oral or a poster presentation.
- The presenting author must also specify whether he/she is a student who automatically competes for one of the Student Awards.
Abstracts and final manuscripts, for both poster and oral presentation, must be prepared in LaTeX using the style file iwsm.sty and the template file templateIWSM.tex. The file templateIWSM2015.zip includes the necessary files. Please do not use external bib-files and follow the guidelinesIWSM_2015.pdf very strictly. Please do not alter or add additional packages to these files. To ensure proper evaluation, abstracts should be approximately (but no more than) 4 pages. Due to the fact that the proceedings are archived electronically (as PDF) on the Statistical Modelling Society webpage and the PDF will be also available from the conference webpage, we encourage authors to submit their figures in colors. Nevertheless, in the printed version of the proceedings, all figures will be printed on a grey scale. Hence the authors should make sure that their plots retain their informative value even when printed on a grey scale. For posters, we suggest to use the format A0 and it must be in portrait orientation.
Note: The format files are slightly different from those used at previous IWSMs, so authors have to use the new ones.
Reviewing and Acceptance
All submitted abstracts, for oral and poster presentation, will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee. A decision on the acceptance of the abstracts will be made by March 25, 2015, and notification will be sent by e-mail. Due to the limited number of oral presentations some authors who have submitted an abstract for an oral presentation might be asked to submit a poster presentation instead.
Note: Until the time of acceptance, only the PDF of the abstract is required.
The final manuscript, ready for printing (both oral and poster presentation), should be submitted by sending an e-mail to HFriedl@tugraz.at and using CC to email@example.com no later than April 30, 2015. The authors must send a single .zip file including the final PDF file (as the paper should appear), the source .tex file, and the associated figure files (in .PDF). Final manuscripts will be handled (and included in the Proceedings) only for participants registered with payment. The formal registration deadline for authors is April 30, 2015. Maximum length of final paper: 4 pages for poster presentations; 6 pages for oral presentations.
Note: Registration and payment are requested before submitting the final manuscript.
All the accepted papers (for both oral and poster presentation) will be included in the Workshop Proceedings. As for previous IWSMs, there will be two volumes: Vol. 1 devoted to oral presentations and Vol. 2 devoted to the posters. The printed form of Vol. 1 will be provided to all registered participants. The printed form of Vol. 2 will be distributed only if requested upon registration (additional charge applies). Participants of the conference will be provided with a free PDF file of Vol. 2 for download.
By submitting a final paper, authors agree to grant the organizers of the workshop the right to publish the paper in the conference proceedings volume, to be distributed at the workshop. The material should not have been published elsewhere before the workshop. The workshop does not claim copyright and authors are free to publish the same material elsewhere after the workshop. Authors should ensure that publication in the conference proceedings does not conflict with the rights of third parties, nor violate non-disclosure agreements or copyright laws.
