To submit your paper, please take the following steps:

  3. Complete and sign the ICSSC Copyright Assignment Form. The Copyright Form must be sent by e-mail to organizingcommittee@kaconf.org
The lead author of an accepted abstract is the only author with access to upload the final paper.

Authors uploading a paper to the Ka Conference are confirming that the uploaded paper complies with the Ka Conference Publication Ethics and Malpractice.

Authors are responsible for obtaining all needed sponsor, employer and/or government approvals of their papers with sufficient time to avoid last minute withdrawals, and should also be aware that the final paper requires the completion of the Conference Copyright.

Templates

The final publication-ready papers must be prepared according to the KA Paper Template and must be accompanied by a completed and signed  Ka Copyright Agreement Form which grants permission to publish the manuscript in either printed or electronic form.

Additional Paper

Please note that each additional paper submitted by the same lead author will require the payment of a USD 400.00 processing and handling fee.
If an author fails to pay the registration fee the paper will not be allowed to be presented at the Conference and not archived in the Ka online proceedings.

Podium rule

To ensure conference quality, the "no paper, no podium" rule will be enforced. This policy states that if the paper is not uploaded to the site by the given deadline, the paper will not be allowed to be presented at the Conference, even if it is included in the Conference Preliminary Program.

The lead author is responsible for paper oral presentation. Papers not presented during the Conference will not be included in Ka Conference online proceedings.

Oral Presentation

Lead author can select to present his paper in the in-person or in the virtual conference. The selection can be made after LOGIN, selecting the preferred conference format.
The selection must be made before making the payment needed to upload the final paper. The oral (in-person or virtual) presentation of each accepted paper and its inclusion in the ICSSC Conference Proceedings requires the payment of one registration fee.
Irrespective of the selected conference format, lead author should prepare and submit a pre-recorded presentation following the instructions reported in the Presentation Instructions page as well as speaker short bio no later than August 15, 2021. All Presentations will take the form of a video.

To upload your presentation, you will receive an email with an individualized submission link by August 1, 2021.
