Paper Submission Guidelines

Authors whose abstracts have been accepted are invited to expand them into full papers. Full papers should be between 2,500 and 3,000 words and be written in British English and may include 5 – 7 images. Paper titles should be no more than 50 characters with spaces and should give a clear insight into the topic of the paper. Papers should be concise and follow a logical structure providing: Abstract, Introduction, Background, Methods, Results and Reflection, and Conclusion.

Authors are required to submit a blinded full paper by removing any information from the document that could be used to identify them, such as names, affiliations, or acknowledgments that might give away their identities. We implement a strict double-blind review process for all submitted papers, ensuring impartial assessment based on its quality and contribution to the field.

The paper must be uploaded as a DOC(X)-file or a PDF-file to our website link by Friday, 5 April (extended deadline!). 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 DMS areas, authors should choose the one they consider to be the most appropriate. The Design Modelling Symposium aims to produce Conference Proceedings that are both scientifically robust and visually compelling. Springer will initially publish these contributions as a book.

Springer provides a template, which authors are welcome to use, but please note that the full paper must still be blinded. More info to be found on

Final papers should be non-blinded incl. name(s) and affiliation(s) of all authors involved. Please adhere to the word count limit of 2,500 to a maximum of 3,000 words (incl. lists, captions and tables, excl. abstract) with a total of 10 – max. 15 pages, and 5 – max. 7 high resolution images. More info to come after notification of full paper acceptance.
