Call for PapersThe first stage is to send a one-page plain-text abstract as the contents of an email to
email@example.com, with subject line "M2VIP 2014, Abstract.
It will be judged for relevance to the conference, novelty, evidence of application and especially for interest to the delegates. The deadline will be at the end of June, to galvanise you into action!
Each abstract will be seen by three reviewers. For papers that they recommend, full manuscripts will then be invited with an August deadline. These will get a full review by the same reviewers and the papers will be accepted or rejected according to their recommendations - but by that stage they will have shown interest in your topic. You will receive a decision before the end of September, to give time to make travel arrangements in plenty of time. You might also be asked to make any reasonable revisions that they suggest, sending the final version before the end of October.
There is a good chance that Springers will welcome a third volume of papers to publish – the second is nearing completion.
The conference has been held in Manila before, to the delight of the delegates. De la Salle University has a smart new building for us to use as the venue.
