How do we evaluate your papers?
To help the authors to write a high-quality
paper related to our conference main themes,
here are the suggestions:
1. Topic: It is very important to
check if your research work is within to the
conference focus: Read our call for paper
You should identify at least one keyword that
matches your work. Your paper should concentrate
on this topic.
The conference emphasized the “cooperative”
“integration” aspect of the design,
visualization, engineering and other
applications. It also includes the theory and
basic methods for these applications.
You should make sure your paper concentrates on
these aspects or be related to these aspects.
Multiple user, multiple discipline, multiple
location, multiple automaton, multiple unit,
multiple sensors, network applications or
facilitating such applications are within our
conference interest. Integration of life cycles
in design, engineering …are also within our
interest. Please see more in our call for papers
themes for more information.
2. Title: Setup a title that can
summarize your work in one short sentence. It is
the most important element for the readers to
understand your paper. All the contents in the
paper should serve the title. Try not to use
unnecessary words such as “research on …”, “a
new method of…”.
3. Structure: A paper should
include an abstract, keywords and a set of
sections and a list of references.
The abstract should briefly describe your work
presented in the paper and not an introduction
of the topic. It should be short.
A long paper should have an introduction
of the problem to solve, the current situation,
your approach, the reason to take such approach,
your results and evaluation. It should dedicate
enough space for the concrete work done.
Evaluation or at least some sample use cases are
A short paper
can present the intermediate
result of a project. No long introduction is
necessary. The paper should concentrate in
reporting the major result of the work.
The paper should follow the LNCS
restrictively including the page
layout, fonts types and sizes...This conference is
science and technology oriented. The paper should
be supported by schemes, figures and pictures etc.
Due to the short space, unless being exceptional,
a survey is not generally suitable for this
conference. You can see more in our submission
Paper evaluation criteria
1. Paper topic relevant to the conference
The conference is focused on cooperative aspect of
the design, visualization and engineering plus
other applications. For cooperative engineering,
we emphasize life cycle management, integration
etc. The paper topic should be related to the
topic listed in the call for paper themes of the
2. Technical correctness and novelty
The paper should be technically correct. The
technical approach should be novel compared with
exiting approaches. The paper will not be
considered if it has similar results in existing
publications including the authors own
3. English usage
The paper should reach the international technical
English writing level. There should not be grammar
mistakes and improper uses of abbreviations, terms
4. Paper format, figure, table, reference
The paper should follow the LNCS format. The
titles, fonts, figures, tables and references
should strictly follow the LNCS format:
5. Presentation quality in
The paper should have good quality in the
structure setup, contents distribution etc.
