FULL PAPERS 2019-04-19T12:57:48+00:00


Authors with accepted abstracts are now  requested to prepare an extended paper which will be published on the online Journal Key Engineering Materials, published by Trans Tech Publications and indexed by Scopus. Further instructions will be given after the abstract acceptance.

The preparation of the extended paper won’t be compulsory but optional.

All accepted abstracts will be included in the final program anyway.

All Authors will receive credentials to access a personal page on the Publisher’s website. Once in the page please follow step by step instructions and template to upload your full Paper.

The full paper should be of 6 pages. (Download the template example)
For the manuals for authors, you are welcome to download it in pdf version or to watch video guide by following the link 

After the review process and final acceptance of the full paper, papers will be selected for oral or poster presentations  by the Scientific Committee, taking also into account the preference expressed by the authors for the oral or poster presentation.

The final decision on type of presentation and topic is by the Scientific Committee. Authors will be informed by April 30, 2019

A selection of the best submitted full papers will be published on a special issue of the Journals “Surface Engineering” and “Materials and Manufacturing Processes” after the Congress.

Please note that at least one author for each paper should be registered in the Conference by May 5, 2019
