Submitting Final Manuscripts in Confy

Step 1: Register for the conference

Before uploading your camera-ready version of your paper, one author must register for the conference. Please ensure that you have registered to the conference via the conference website in order to upload your camera-ready paper. Please register using the same email as the one to which you received your notification of acceptance, as this is necessary to let us match your registration with your paper. At least one author per paper is required to pay the full member/non-member conference registration fee in order to publish their paper, also in cases where all authors are students. ICST membership is free of charge, please find more information here. One registration may cover the publication of up to two papers of which the registrant is co-author.

Step 2: Login to Confy

Go to the Camera-ready Confy web site at Login using the email on which you received the acceptance notification. You may need to register (using that same email) and click on the confirmation link that you will receive to this email following registration. Alternatively, if you are already registered and forgot your password, please use the Reset Password function.

Once you have logged in, you may also go to Edit Profile at the top right and update your profile as needed, this step is not required.

Step 3: Enter Paper Details

Once logged in you should see on the Home page a list of conferences, tracks and workshops to which you have been accepted. Select from the list the conference to which you want to submit your camera ready paper. If you submit to a workshop, please select the host conference, the workshop will be listed as one of the tracks.

Note: if you do not see the conference listed on the Home page, click on your name in the main menu and select Conferences from the drop-down menu, for a complete, searchable list of all ICST conferences.

After choosing a conference, go to Submit Camera Ready on the right.

Please provide the following details of your paper:

  • Title, Abstract and Keywords.
  • Co-authors of your paper (if any) and in the correct order.
  • The corresponding author.

Step 4: Upload Manuscript

Besides the PDF file, please upload an archive file (zip, tar.gz or rar) containing both the PDF and the source files (MS Word or LaTeX) of your paper, in the “Source files (archive)” section by clicking the Choose file button. Please upload this in addition to (not instead of) the separate PDF copy.

NOTE: Make sure that your PDF and source files (MS Word or LaTeX) conform to the publisher’s formatting requirements. Failure to upload your camera ready paper in the required format(s) will result in your paper not appearing on the proceedings CD or in the digital library.
