For authors


The authors centre provides the necessary information about the submission process.

The submission process consists of four stages:

  1. Abstract submission
  2. Draft paper submission
  3. Revised paper submission
  4. Final paper submission

Check Important Dates for the submission deadlines.

The Scientific Committee will review all abstracts and notify the authors about acceptance/rejection. The authors of accepted abstracts will be asked to submit a draft paper. Draft papers will be revised with the help of anonymous referees and the reviews will be made available on July 25th, 2016. In case the draft paper is accepted pending revision, the authors will be asked to submit a revised version of the paper by the 20th of September 2016.

The result of the final revision will be notified after the conference, so that the final version of the paper will benefit from the discussions and opinions collected during the conference. 

The submission and review of papers for NICFD 2016 will be managed through the online conference paper management system EasyChair (


Conference proceedings

Accepted papers will be published in the IOP Journal of Physics: Conference Series. All papers will be open access, with unlimited use of colour online and extra multimedia items. The accepted papers will also be indexed in Scopus, EI Compendex and Inspect.



The conference format allows for approximately 30 oral presentations. Oral contributions will be selected by the scientific committee in order to provide an overview of all relevant topics.

A poster session next to the main room is organised for presenting and discussing all contributions.
