All submitted papers should report original and unpublished work, experimental or theoretical, and are not under consideration for publications elsewhere. All papers should be no less than 4 pages in length and must strictly follow the format of the ICFTBA 2023 Conference template. All papers are subject to reviews and edits. Prospective authors are kindly invited to submit full-text papers that includes title, abstract, introduction, tables/figures, conclusion and references. Other styles of papers are not accepted. Please submit your papers in both .doc/.docx AND .pdf formats as attachments via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by the given deadline. It is unnecessary to submit an abstract in advance.
All accepted papers will be published in conference proceedings, which will be distributed to all delegates after the Conference has been held.
The submission will first be reviewed for its topic and length, then go through an originality check. The peer-review process will begin soon after the paper is found to be qualified. The paper will be sent to have a double-blind peer review by 2 reviewers. They will judge the paper based on the theme, coverage, innovation, integrity, depth, and language. If the paper is accepted, notification of acceptance and review comments will be sent to the author via email. The actual review time may be different under certain situations.
All submissions should be original and unpublished. All submissions must be in English and checked for correct grammar and spelling. The standard paper format and page limits which are listed in the given "Template" should be strictly abided by. Each paper should clearly indicate its technical or scientific contributions and the theme to which it belongs. Papers that contain any form of plagiarism and/or do not match the conference theme will be rejected.
Q: Is it possible to submit other non-English papers?
A: NO. ICFTBA only accepts papers written in English.
Q: Is there a limit to the number of submissions I can be listed as an author on?
A: NO. But please make sure that your submissions are distinct and sufficiently substantial.
Does the six-page limit include references?
We recommend the authors write within 6 pages with references; however, we still accept papers longer than 6 pages. An extra fee is charged.
By whom is the proceeding indexed?
The papers will be submitted to Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI), Crossref, CNKI, DOAJ, and Google Scholar for indexing.
What are publication time and index time?
After the conference, all papers accepted by ICFTBA will be submitted to the publisher for review and publication, and then submitted to CPCI and other databases for reviewing and indexing. The proceedings will be published in about 6 months. The specific index time depends on the efficiency of the review process, usually 12-24 months after publication.
