Papers submission / Important changes
This year the Book of Proceedings of the International Summer School–Conference APM-2020 will be published as a special issue of Springer conference proceedings, Engineering / Applied Sciences, Scopus indexed.
Also, several papers related to the mechanics and physics of materials can be published alternatively in the journal "MATERIALS PHYSICS AND MECHANICS" (MPM journal), which is covered in Scopus and Web of Science Core Collection.
In this regard, the criteria for the selection of manuscripts will be more stringent. The selection process will take place in several steps. The first step is the presentation at the conference. Afterwards the best speakers will be invited to submit their manuscript before July 20, 2020. The authors may choose if they prefer to submit the manuscript for the publication as a chapter in the Springer book or in the MPM journal. The second step is the reviewing process.
We draw your attention that the style files for manuscripts submitted to the Springer book and to MPM journal are different:
Instructions for authors willing to publish a chapter in the Springer book
Guidelines for the authors who prefer to submit an article to MPM journal
