Important Dates Final registration deadline & abstract submission: October 22, 2021 Letter of Acceptance issue: November 10, 2022 Conference day: December 20, 2022 Full paper submission deadline: December 30, 2022 The submission stage The author should submit the paper via e-mail. The authors should not submit the content of the article simultaneously to another journal. How to prepare a manuscript There is no general limitation of the overall size nor the number of figures, nor the level of details considered necessary. However, the appropriate length of a manuscript depends on the information presented in the paper. A manuscript should consist of the following content. Title The title should be simple, concise, and informative, with only the first word capitalized. The authors should also provide a shortened version of a maximum of 100 characters (including spaces) for running headers. Author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s) A list of all authors, as well as corresponding addresses and e-mail addresses, should be provided. A numerical superscript corresponding should precede each address to the same superscript after the author's name is concerned. Addresses should contain all information necessary for effective mail delivery. The authors should also provide e-mail to speed up communication between readers and authors. This information will be published unless the authors request otherwise. Abstract An abstract should accompany each manuscript; it should be completely self-consistent (i.e., with no figure, table, equation, or reference citations), not exceeding 250 words, and written as a single paragraph. The main body of the paper The body of the paper must range between 4000-10.000 words, written in MS word. It could be divided into sections. Sections should be bold. Subsections should be italic. Whichever spelling you choose (British or American English), please be consistent throughout. Use hyphens consistently and avoid unnecessary ones. The words “section(s)”, “equation(s)”, “figure(s)” and “reference(s)” are abbreviated as “sect(s).”, “fig(s).”, “eq(s).” and “ref(s).” unless they are the first word of a sentence. The word “table” is always written in full. Latin expressions, such as, e.g., i.e., et al., versus (vs.), should be set in italic. All terms or titles in Arabic should be transliterated by following the Library of Congress guide. The name of the person should not be transliterated. Use a tool such as Mendeley, Zotero, or EndNote for reference management and formatting, and choose APA style.
