MTNS 2012 : 20th International Symposium on Mathematical Theory of Networks and Systems
Call For Papers
Invitation to Submit
The International Program Committee (IPC) invites contributions to the 20th International Symposium on Mathematical Theory of Networks and Systems 2012 to be held in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on 9-13 July 2012.
Using the online submission form you will be asked to enter some personal information. Before doing so, please ensure that you are able to meet all the Submission Requirements and have carefully read the Submission Guidelines and Instructions
The symposium programme includes:
plenary and semi-plenary lectures
contributed talks (either as an extended abstract or a full paper)
The plenary / semi-plenary lectures will be included in the programme upon invitation.
Extended abstracts must be no longer than 3 pages and submitted as a pdf-file.
Extended abstracts will not be peer reviewed however will be reviewed by a committee for program fit and will be printed in the conference proceedings.
We also encourage authors of abstracts to upload a full paper version into the Arxiv and then quote a link to this in their final abstract for proceedings
Conference participants are invited to submit full papers that will appear in the conference proceedings. Full papers should have a length of at most 8 pages.
To ensure the uniformity in format of the papers appearing in the proceedings, authors are required to prepare their papers with LaTeX using the SIAM proceedings class "proceedings.cls" available here or directly from SIAM at siam.org/tex/books/proceedings.zip. This is a "zip" file containing all the necessary macros and examples.
Authors are required to submit their papers electronically in PDF format; please do not submit the original LaTex source.
In order for your paper to be included in the conference proceedings, at least one of the authors of that paper must have registered for the conference.
A mini course is tutorial based which can consists of up to 2 blocks, with each block consisting of 4 talks, prepared and presented in a unified and coherent manner by a team of at most four people. A mini course submission requires a 2-4 page extended abstract providing the structure of the whole mini-course, with no requirement of abstracts for the individual talks.
An invited session consists of 4 papers, dealing with several issues of a unified theme. The session convenor must first submit a summary statement describing the relevance and importance of the session. Each presenter must then submit a maximum 3 page extended abstract under the name of the session which you will select online. Each paper in the proposed session will be first individually reviewed, and then the invited session will be evaluated as a whole. The International Program Committee reserves the right to accommodate the accepted papers from rejected invited session into the regular program.
Submission Guidelines & Instructions
Please read the following instructions on how to use the Oxford Abstracts Submission System to submit, edit or withdraw a paper for the MTNS 2012 Conference.
Submissions in hard copy will not be accepted. Submissions must be entered via the online Oxford Abstracts Submissions System.
Authors will receive notification of acceptance by 15th March 2012. This decision is final.
Upon receiving notification of acceptance, authors must confirm their acceptance by registering for the symposium by 30th April 2012.
