The amount of time varies. Once the article is received, and after verifying that formal presentation standards are met, the manuscript is submitted to two referees (i.e., peers), who can last several weeks. We will send you the reports of the referees as soon as they are available. If your manuscript is accepted, you will be asked to submit the final version of your article within two weeks for final publication.
Articles are published on an ongoing basis, so your final article will be published as son as the editing and layout process is completed, which may happen either before or after the Conference. This means that, if submitted well in advance, your article can be fully evaluated and published before the Conference. This is especially valuable for Conference delegates who need to have their articles published by the journal before the Conference. If this is the case, please submit your article well an advance, at least three months before the Conference.
