A special issue of Collection Symposium Series will be published for the conference. Participants will receive this volume upon registration. The Organizing Committee reserves the right of considering the contributions.

Instructions for contributors

Manuscripts submitted for the proceedings published in Collection Symp. Ser. must be created using the template. The organizing committee reserves the right of considering the manuscripts and forms of presentations (ca 40 oral communications will be selected from the submitted manuscripts, other contributions will be shifted to poster presentations).

Before you start writing up your manuscript, please have a look at the Sample articles for each category (plenary, oral and poster).

Manuscript Preparation and Submission Manual:

  1. Download the manuscript template (MS Word file)
  2. The best way to edit the downloaded file is to write your manuscript in a separate file and then copy and paste title, authors, affiliations, text and references separately into the template. You may apply the styles defined in the template by placing the cursor in the appropriate paragraph and clicking the style needed (SympTitle, SympAuthors, SympAffiliation, SympAnnotation, SympNormal, SympHeading, SympCaption, SympRemark, SympReferences etc.).
  3. Do not change the size of the page, font definition, and the margins.
  4. Use the same style for references as shown in the template.
  5. Images should be stored in TIFF format in actual size (as would appear in the printed manuscript) before inserting into the template with the resolution 600 dpi.
  6. For chemical structure drawings use ChemDraw (ACS style) and paste the drawing into the text of your manuscript.
  7. Save your manuscript in the format of MS Word (MAC users, please save the file as for PC).
