NOTE: The link for abstract submission is now closed.
The Organising Committee of the 9th International Space Syntax Symposium invites any interested parties to submit their papers of original research for presentation at the Symposium. Abstracts for your papers should be submitted electronically through this web page no later than 10 February 2013 and:
Be no longer than 500 words.
Include at most 5 keywords.
Indicate to which of the 8 Themes it corresponds.
Paper submission requires a prior submission of abstract, so you may not register papers unless you have the abstract submitted. Abstract submission link will be opened from 20 October 2012 to 10 February 2013.
NOTE: The deadline for full paper submission has been extended to 5 June (24:00 GMT)
Paper submission can be made as additions to the abstract through the Personal Page, which was created when the abstract was submitted. We wish to remind you that papers should be submitted no later than 26 May 2013. Papers received after this date will not be considered.
Papers will be classified in two groups: long papers and short papers. Long papers will be presented orally in parallel sessions with three or four other papers. Please consider a presentation of approximately 20 minutes, to give time for questions and discussion. Short papers will be presented as posters in the poster session.
Instruction to Paper Authors
A Paper should be submitted as a single word document (.doc or .docx) through the Personal Page. Authors may follow further instructions as they appear in the application interface, but basically:
Long papers are expected to be a maximum of 6000 words (not including bibliography and abstract)
Short papers are expected to be a maximum of 3000 words (not including bibliography and abstract)
The reference system used will be Chicago Author-Date, as can be found at Chicago-Style Citation Quick Guide.
Each figure or table should be placed with its label and caption written directly underneath it.
You may have a maximum of eight figures in a long paper, and four figures in a short paper.
You may not include your personal information in papers when submitting them.
The organizing committee will not actively be proof-reading the papers, we therefore urge you to make sure your papers are readable, using correct language, and are correctly spelled when they are submitted.
Referee Process and Outcome
All papers will be refereed, and all accepted papers will be published in the proceedings (consisting of printed publication of abstracts and a CD with all the papers). Once refereed, long papers can be: accepted, accepted with corrections, accepted as short papers (does not require a new referee round) or rejected. Short papers can be: accepted, accepted with corrections, or rejected. If corrections are of heavy nature, a second referee round might be expected. For the referee work to flow as smoothly as possible, we would like you to keep in mind what symposium theme you consider your paper to best fit into.
Announcement of accepted papers will be made on 1 Aug 2013, after which authors may go through early or late registration process
