Abstract Submission Guidelines

Authors interested in presenting a paper should submit an abstract (500-1,000 words) in .DOC or .PDF format. Final papers are expected to have a length of (2,500-3,000 words).

Abstracts should include discussion on:

  • Background – an overview of the topic and the research questions that will be addressed by your paper,
  • Methods and data – an overview of the data used and the methods employed in your research, and
  • Findings – a description of the results of your research.

The Design Modelling Symposium is aiming at creating scientifically as well as visually strong proceedings. These will first be published as a book by Springer. The format of the book supports papers with large scale visual representations. The Scientific Committee invites authors to submit, besides the visual representations used in the text of the paper, up to 5 additional images or illustrations to underline the content of the papers.

Both, abstract and full paper must be submitted blinded so that there is no information that can be used to discover the identity of the author(s) during the double-blind review process.

Out of the list of themes and topics, an assignment word should be chosen for the paper. Where there is an overlap between the coverage of several themes and topics, authors should choose the one they consider to be the most appropriate.
