Abstract Submission

Authors from academia, industry and research institutes are invited to submit an abstract in the SPS2024 Conference Management System (EasyChair), before 12 August 2023. The abstract should include no author names, author affiliations, figures/tables nor any references.

Please structure the abstract using these headings:

  • Title (preliminary)
  • Keywords (3-5)
  • Topic(s) (select one from the above-listed topics, A-K, or a special session)
  • Abstract (400-600 words). The abstract should give an outline of the final paper, indicating the paper’s merits and relevance to the symposium scope, a brief account of the results and the conclusions.

Notification of acceptance will be sent at the latest on 1 September 2023.

Full paper submission

All authors must use the sps2024 Word template or sps2024 Latex template (link to the templates) for their full papers while strictly following the IOS Press instructions.

The full paper should be submitted by the SPS2024 Conference Management System (EasyChair) by updating your previous abstract submission.

The final paper should be 8-12 pages long. The required language is English, and all submissions are made electronically. Submit the paper according to the deadline, 13 October 2023, as late submissions will not be considered in the review process. Do not forget to activate and use spell-check in the word template before you send in the full paper.

All full papers will be subject to peer-review by the scientific committee. To increase quality and minimize the risk of bias, the review process is double blinded. To allow this, no name of authors should be included in the full paper manuscript to be reviewed. Authors are to be added in the final version of the camera-ready paper.

The abstract in the full paper should be maximum 300 words. Update the abstract in the EasyChair form so it is the same as in the full paper. Include 3-5 keywords in the full paper and update the keywords in the EasyChair form if there are any changes. Authors, when uploading the final version of their manuscripts, automatically express the acceptance in regard to the following copyright agreement with IOS Press,

Review comments on full papers will be sent back to the corresponding author at the latest on 15 December 2023.

The modified final (camera-ready) version of the paper should be re-submitted before 26 January 2024.

For a paper to be presented at the symposium and published in the proceedings, at least one unique author per paper needs to be registered by the early-bird registration deadline on February 15 2024.

Swedish Production Symposium (SPS) is a bi-yearly conference primarily organized by the Swedish Production Academy (SPA).
