The submitted manuscripts (pdf-file) by the authors after passing the peer-review will be distributed in the PRADS 2019 conference by USB flash drive.

Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings

The templates for conference proceedings can be found from the SpringerNatures web-site . You can download both “Word Template” and “LaTeX package” from the web-site. Also, please see the Proceedings Guidelines for Authors before you will start making your manuscript.

These will be used by Springer to provide authors with a personal MySpringer account where they can download a free copy of the eBook.

(2) Length of the Paper

In the guideline for authors, it is said that the number of pages of common type of full papers might be 10 to 20 pages. However, in the proceedings of PRADS 2019, it is recommended that the manuscript intended for the ‘Main’ section of the paper may be up to around 5,000 words long.

When you will submit your manuscript, you should also submit the filled consent form. You can download the consent form here . Please read it, fill the form, sign on it, and submit the pdf-file of the signed consent form when you will submit the manuscript.

(4) Reprint-permission

The authors should obtain permissions from the copyright holder (usually the original publisher) for any material you want to reuse in the manuscript of PRADS 2019, before you will submit the manuscript.

Please get the reprint-permission(s) from the copyright holder (publisher). And you should submit them to PRADS 2019 when you will submit the manuscript of your paper.

In many publishing companies, reprint-permission can be obtained by online-application using RightsLink managed by Copyright Clearance Center(CCC). If you will apply the permission by using RIghtsLink, you will be able to download the “reprint-permission” from the web-site. Usually, you can find the button(link), such as “Get rights and content” or “Reprint and permissions”, in the web-site of the journal of the publisher. From this button(link), you might be able to obtain the reprint-permission.
If you will not use RightLink to get permission, you may be able to use the own application form of the publishing company. Then you will be able to get the “reprint-permission” from the publishing company.
Also, you can use the “Permission Request Form ” shown in this web-site to get permission from the publishing company. If you will send filled “Permission Request Form “, then the publishing company will send you the signed “Permission Request Form ” to you. You can use it as “reprint-permission”.
