Policy change for the proceedings for published paper as a preprint

May 31, 2020

The ECOS 2020 Local Organizing Committee(LOC) found that some papers were uploaded to the Preprint server managed by EasyChair.

Upon some of the author's requests, the LOC will include all final papers in the proceedings if they are uploaded and paid by 3 June, although they also uploaded to the preprint server by mistake.

Sincerely yours,
ECOS 2020 Local Organizing Committee

EasyChair is used to manage the submission and review of abstracts and papers. If you used EasyChair, for example, in ECOS 2017 or 2018, you can continuously use it with your user name and password. If you use it for the first time, you have to create your account. Use EasyChair via the following website.

An abstract for each paper should be submitted with 300 words at the maximum together with 5 keywords. A recommended number of words is around 200 words, which may be suitable for post-conference journal publication. We ask you to choose two selected topics from those listed below to cluster abstracts for reviewing papers and making sessions.

The length of each paper will be limited to 12 pages at the maximum. The instruction and format for preparing manuscripts will be uploaded on this website after the abstract submission. Note that if the number of papers exceeds its capacity depending on the number of session rooms and time slots, we may also set poster sessions, and that even if your paper is assigned to a poster session, you have to submit a full paper for review. All the papers accepted after review will be included in the Proceedings of the ECOS 2020, which will be distributed in a USB memory stick to all the participants on site.
