Contributed papers

Submit paper

Please submit, in EasyChair – https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=clmpst2019 – an abstract of 500 words (including the references) prepared for anonymous review. Indicate to which section you submit the paper (tick the appropriate box).

The allocated time for each contributed paper is 30 minutes (including discussion).

Contributed symposia
Symposia are groups of talks on a common theme. Each symposium consists of four to twelve papers.

In EasyChair – https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=clmpst2019 – please make a submission for each paper (b) as well as a submission for the symposium as a whole (a).

Please prepare all parts of the submission for anonymous review and indicate in which section you submit the symposium (tick the appropriate box). Please make sure that all contributors chose the same section.

(a) For the symposium as a whole, please provide a general description of the format and the topic of the proposed symposium and its significance (up to 500 words), and suggest a symposium chair. After the abstract, please list the titles of the talks in the order they should appear at the conference. Please provide the symposium with an acronym, and write this acronym at the beginning of the title of the symposium (<Symposium acronym>: <Title of symposium>). The acronym will be used by the Programme Committee to keep the individual submissions in a proposal together during reviewing and when creating the conference programme.

(b) Each paper within a symposium is submitted with a 500-word abstract. Please write the acronym of the symposium at the beginning of the title of the talk (<Symposium acronym>: <Title of the individual talk>). The acronym will be used by the Programme Committee to keep the individual submissions in a proposal together during reviewing and when creating the conference program. Please tick the appropriate congress section into which you are submitting.

Note to symposia organisers: Papers intended to be presented as parts of a symposium must be submitted by their respective authors. Organisers of symposia are supposed to contact all symposium speakers in advance and make sure that they submit their abstracts by the submission deadline of 9 January 2019. The symposium description is submitted by the symposium organiser by the same deadline. Please make sure that all parts of the submission are prepared for anonymous review and submitted to the same congress section (the same box is ticked on all of them). – When submitting a symposium proposal, the EasyChair requires you to take on the mantle of a „speaker“. This is for formal reasons only, and in no way precludes you from submitting a paper of your own (to that same symposium, to a different symposium, or a contributed paper). In this case, you will appear as a „speaker“ on 2 submissions, one of which must be the symposium proposal.

Although the exact format of symposia is up to the symposium organizers, the allocated time for each symposium paper is 30 minutes. For instance, a symposium with 4 speakers is a 2 hour session (4 x 30 minutes). Note that if a symposium consists of more than 4 speakers, it might be split into two sessions due to coffee breaks in the programme.

Rules for multiple presentations
(a) Every corresponding author is allowed to submit only one individual or symposium paper as a “speaker”. (Organising a symposium does not count as being a “speaker”, despite the labeling in EasyChair.)
(b) Authors are permitted to be listed as non-corresponding co-authors of additional papers.
(c) The corresponding author of each paper as well as the organiser of a symposium must be registered as a participant at the Congress and present the paper in Prague.

All questions about submissions should be directed to the congress secretary, Mr. Martin Zach, at clmpst2019@flu.cas.cz.

The members of the Programme Committee are listed here.
