The result of the reviewing will be announced to the submitting authors by email, along with reviewer comments, if any.

    • presented at the conference (at least one author of each article should attend to the conference);
    • in line with the scope of ICSF.
  • A maximum of two articles per author is accepted.

    • No data, text, or theories by others are presented as if they were the authors own ("plagiarism").

    • Consent to submit has been received from all co-authors and responsible authorities at the institute/organization where the work has been carried out before the work is submitted.
    • Authors whose names appear on the submission have contributed sufficiently to the scientific work and therefore share collective responsibility and accountability for the results.
