FULL PAPER GUIDELINES

After review of all abstracts submitted to NEXTBUILT 2024, the Scientific Committee will inform authors of its decisions by February 19th, 2024. Authors of accepted abstracts are invited to submit a full paper by April 28th, 2024 for presentation at NEXTBUILT 2024 and inclusion in the NEXTBUILT 2024 Special Issue of IOP Conference Series, indexed by Scopus, ISI Web of Science, EI Compendex and others (CC BY licence).

For all enquiries, please contact the Organizing Committee at info@next-built.org

Once you have received notification that your abstract has been accepted, please write a paper according to the following instructions and submit it via the Morressier platform.

    • The paper must be edited in MS Word, using the template provided.
    • The paper is expected to have an average of 10 pages (including abstract, acknowledgements and references).
      • Instructions must be followed strictly as any layout corrections will delay the publishing process of the entire proceedings. We aim to publish the open-access proceedings online by August 2024, at the latest.
      • Do not forget to add acknowledgements for funding! Funding agencies may require this to accept your publication as a deliverable. Also, consider adding a credit author statement.

Useful links:

Please strictly follow the template MS Word (download it here). Further information is available at the IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science author guidelines.
In short:

  • Prepare two versions of your paper: upload an anonymous version (without authors’ names or affiliations) for the double-blind review process, and a regular version with all the authors’ information for submission.
  • References: if you use Mendeley or Zotero as Reference manager software, please look for the Citation style named IOP conference series earth and environmental science and use it.
  • Registration: the publication of each full paper requires at least the registration of one author of the paper at the NEXTBUILT 2024 International Conference (either online or onsite in Bologna), otherwise the contribution will not be considered in the conference proceedings. You can register yourself by following the instructions on the dedicated page (REGISTRATION) – once you register yourself, please indicate the ID number of your contribution and if your attendance will be remotely or onsite – we look forward to meeting you!

After the conference, the papers will be published in the proceedings (IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science NEXTBUILT 2024 Special Issue) subject to author registration valid after payment of the registration fee and presentation at the conference (on-site or remotely).

The publishers also reserve the right to reject a paper, even after acceptance by the NEXTBUILT 2024 Scientific Committee, if it does not meet their publishing license terms and conditions. Note that the paper must not have been published before (other than in a research thesis or dissertation which fact has been notified to the conference organizer in writing).

Authors are kindly requested to register by April 19, 2024. The conference fee will be returned should a paper be refused.

Two best paper prizes (Regular and PhD/Master’s student) will be awarded at the conference.
