Author Information

We invite proposals for contributed talks, invited sessions and mini-courses on the Conference Themes. The submission of papers and proposals for invited sessions and mini-courses is via the Papercept submission site.

Submission of contributed papers:

  • full papers between four (4) and eight (8) pages.
  • extended abstracts between two (2) and four (4) pages

For this edition of MTNS, the plan is to have the full papers indexed in Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar. To this end, manuscripts submitted as full papers will undergo a peer review process. Extended abstracts will undergo a simplified review process and will not be indexed in the academic citation databases mentioned above.

To ensure the uniformity in format of the papers appearing in the proceedings, authors are required to prepare their papers with LaTeX using the Macros and examples available here. Authors are required to submit their papers electronically in PDF format; please do not submit the original LaTex source.

Submission of proposals for invited sessions: Each invited session consists of 4 or 5 papers, dealing with several issues of a unified theme. The proposals should contain a 2-4 page long summary statement in pdf format describing the relevance and importance of the session, including a brief summary of the invited papers. Each paper in a proposed invited session will be first individually reviewed, and then the invited session will be evaluated as a whole. The International Programme Committee reserves the right to accommodate the accepted papers from rejected invited sessions into the regular programme.

The invited session proposals should be submitted using the Papercept system by the session organizer(s). After the submission of the proposal, the invited session will be assigned a code that the session organizers will receive and have to communicate to the session participants.

The session participants can then submit their papers as invited papers indicating the session code and following the submission procedure in Papercept.

Submission of proposals for mini-courses:  A mini-course consists of 1 or possibly 2 blocks of 100 or 125 minutes per block. Each block consists of 2-4 talks in the case of 100 minutes and 3-5 talks in the case of a 125-minute mini course, prepared and presented in a unified and coherent manner by a team of at most four people. The length of each talk is 50 or 25 minutes. A mini-course proposal would require a 2-4 page long extended abstract providing the structure of the whole mini-course, with no requirement of abstracts for the individual talks.
