The reviewer of a Proceedings paper has the responsibility to determine if the paper will impart practical, usable information of contemporary interest to the industry. The subject need not be unique or unprecedented, though the theme should be in general keeping with the goals of the meeting for which the paper is submitted. Regardless of the quality of the paper, a paper must be rejected if it exceeds the six-page limit, inclusive of references. Reviewers are ultimately responsible to the Authors and the invisible college of our readership for ensuring that the content of the Conference Proceedings represents the evolution and progress of our discipline. We need their assistance to accomplish this task.


An Extended Abstract can be defined as, "a summary paper, whose ideas and significance can be understood in reading it by a fellow engineer, in less time than an hour".

Minimal content; Title, authors, affiliation, abstract, keywords, introduction, proposed approach, conclusion and references (reference even previous works of the same paper author himself).

Recommended content; [Minimal content] + relevant previous research, standards involved, methods, models and simulations with their respective validations, pictures, tables, calculus, and results.
