Participants have a choice of three options: book chapters, conference papers & posters and options for further publication possibilities of conference papers in a selection of academic journals:

+ Choice 1: Book Chapter (review process finished, now in the revision stage, deadline for final version February 25, 2019)

Approximately 25 contributions well-suited to the central conference theme of 'Computational Urban Planning and Management for Smart Cities’ have been selected based on a double review process by the Scientific Committee for inclusion in a book, published by Springer Publishers. The abstracts of the selected chapters will be included in the conference proceedings too. Inclusion of the contribution as a chapter in the book requires the transfer of its copyright to Springer Publishers. Moreover, it requires registration and its presentation at the conference.

 

+ Choice 2: Conference Paper (deadline February 28, 2019)

Besides book chapters it is possible to submit a paper for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings. The Local Committee of the CUPUM Conference will select these conference papers after a review process. Each paper should be between 4000 to 6000 words in length, including notes, figures, tables, references, et cetera. All selected papers should contain at least an abstract (max. 150 words), introduction, methodology section, conclusions, and recommendations.  The selected papers will be included in the digital conference proceedings.  The selection of the paper for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings also requires registration and its presentation at the conference. Furthermore, authors of papers are encouraged to choose for one of the theme issues of four selected journals. At submission, please indicate clearly for which special issue you would like to be selected.

Selected contributors will be contacted by the conference organizers and theme issue editors for possible inclusion in the theme issue based on the outcomes of a thorough review process:
