Submission

Abstracts should be 250-500 words in length and will be reviewed by the international GSDI 15 Conference Paper Review Board. Authors are limited to acceptance of a maximum of two conference paper abstract submissions, whether as lead or secondary author. All submissions should be in English. At the time of submitting abstracts, authors will be asked if they intend to also submit a full paper or a poster, if the abstract is accepted.

High-quality submissions will be accepted for presentation at the conference. Abstracts and full papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings volume to be made available to all registered participants on a USB drive at the time of the conference. Presentations will be made available online via the conference website.

For abstract and full paper submissions, authors retain copyright in their work, but will be required to agree to a Creative Commons By-Attribution License (CC-BY version 4) ( http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) to ensure continued global access to their work over time. All publications produced for the conference, including abstracts, full papers and presentations, will be archived on the GSDI Association website for open access.

(1) Abstract and Paper Submission Process

Web Submission of Abstract: Please submit your 250- to 500-word abstract through the GSDI-15 Conference Submission Management System. (Follow the link published on the GSDI website). You will receive login details, including a paper ID and password when you submit the abstract. Cut and paste (do not upload!) your abstract into the form window provided for the Abstract. You have the option of uploading your full Paper at the same time if it is ready. See below the final Paper format requirements. You may return to the site at any time to upload a new or revised Paper. Save the automated e-mail you will receive that contains your password and paper ID. If you forget your password do NOT make a new submission, but rather contact the Administrator.

E-mail Submission of Abstract: We highly encourage submission through the web. However, if your web access is limited and you would prefer to submit the abstract by e-mail, then please do the following. Include paper title, author's name, affiliation, mailing address and email address followed by the text of the abstract. The abstract submission should be ‘left justified’, written in English, 12-point, Times font, single-spaced with no bold, italic, or underlined text. Submit the abstract to GSDI15papers@gsdi.org with an email subject line of GSDI-15 Abstract Submission by . The Administrator will then submit it to the web site system for you.

Acceptance of Abstract: If your abstract is accepted by the Review Board and you pay the conference registration fee by the specified deadline, your submission will be scheduled in an appropriate session for oral presentation at the conference. Depending on space and time availability, a limited number of submissions may be accepted for a ‘Lightning’ Presentation Session. If openings occur in the regular oral program, Lightning Round presenters will be invited to fill the longer speaking slots. If offered a regular slot you do not need to accept because many presenters prefer participating in the fast-action Lightning Round which often has larger audiences.

Paper Submission Process: If your abstract is accepted for a regular or Lightning Round oral presentation, you are encouraged to submit a full conference paper before 1 July 2016 for inclusion in the GSDI 15 Conference Proceedings. The full Paper should be submitted in Word or other editable format (NOT PDF) and should adhere to the sample GSDI manuscript template which is the same as the Manuscript Template of the International Journal of SDI Research. (See ‘Manuscript Preparation’ at http://ijsdir.jrc.ec.europa.eu/index.php/ijsdir/pages/view/authors).

To submit through the web interface, return to the same GSDI-15 Conference Submission Management System and follow the instructions and options for submitting the final version of your full Paper. Your previously received automated e-mail contains your password and paper ID number. If you forget your password do NOT make a new submission but rather generate a new password using the system. If all else fails, send the paper, your paper ID number, and password to GSDI15papers@gsdi.org and we will upload the paper for you. Make the email subject line: GSDI-15 Final Paper Submission by .

Publication and Licensing Issues

Abstracts and papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings volume to be made available on a USB stick to registered participants and later archived on the Web. Authors retain copyright in their work but through the act of submission to this conference you are agreeing to a Creative Commons CC-BY version 4 license for your work to help ensure continued global access to the work over time (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/). All publications produced for the conference, including abstracts, full papers and presentation slides will be openly archived on the GSDI Association website.

(2) Submissions for articles in a Fully Refereed Conference Book

Based on the quality and topics covered in full papers submitted for the Conference Proceedings, selected authors will be offered the opportunity to submit expanded articles, consisting of 5,000-word manuscripts, for publication in a refereed Conference Book. The submissions will be thoroughly reviewed by at least three members of the international GSDI 15 Conference Paper Review Board. Manuscripts should describe original work that has not been published before. Due date for the expanded articles is 1 October 2016.

Papers must be written in English, include an abstract, conform to the sample manuscript template and be submitted electronically. Authors will retain copyright in their work but will be required to agree to a Creative Commons License (CC-BY version 4) to help ensure continued global access to their work.

Although a full paper might be deemed of high quality, the subject matter of some submissions may be inappropriate for inclusion in the planned book. Full-length article submissions for the Conference Book will be expected to address fundamental theory or research in any of the areas relating to the published themes of the conference. Submissions in this category might:

The book article must adhere to the specifications set forth in the manuscript template of the International Journal of SDI Research. (See ‘Manuscript Preparation’ at http://ijsdir.jrc.ec.europa.eu/index.php/ijsdir/pages/view/authors).

This scholarly book will be distributed at the conference as an e-book to all registered participants, free of charge, but the book will include the normal ISBN information and be filed with the U.S. copyright office as with past published GSDI Association conference books. All articles and the book in entirety will be licensed under Creative Commons CC-BY version 4 open access licenses. Persons desiring a hard copy of the book may use the global network of on demand book printers to acquire one. Contact information about on-demand book printers will be provided with the posted versions of the e-book (e-pub, Kindle and pdf).

Revised articles that fail to adequately address the comments of reviewers as assessed by the editors or fail to meet required formatting requirements or deadlines will be dropped from the peer reviewed publication at the sole discretion of the editors.

(3) Submissions for articles in International Journal of SDI Research

Based on the quality and topics covered in full papers submitted for the Conference Proceedings, selected authors will be offered the opportunity to submit expanded articles for publication in a special issue of the International Journal of SDI Research (IJSDIR) to be published in 2017. Selected papers/authors will be notified prior to the conference and, if they accept, must produce their expanded articles using the manuscript template of the International Journal of SDI Research and other instructions available from the IJSDIR website at http://ijsdir.jrc.ec.europa.eu/index.php/ijsdir/pages/view/authors. Due date for expanded articles for IJSDIR is 1 October 2016.

Rules for submitting articles to IJSDIR apply to all submissions. Articles will be submitted to IJSDIR using the procedure described at the link above. Reviewers will be drawn from the GSDI 15 Paper Review Board. Deadlines relating to submission, review and final acceptance of articles to be published in the IJSDIR will be announced at the time authors are notified of this opportunity for further exposure of their selected paper.

Full Book Article Submission Process

Web Submission: Please submit your full article along with its abstract through the GSDI 15 Conference Submission Management System. Cut and paste the abstract into the form but also retain the abstract as part of the full article.
