Official Language

Official language of the conference is English, therefore, all submissions and presentations must be done in English.

 
Abstract submission

Abstract late submissions are still possible in Easy Chair.

Contact us if you want to be part of this conference and need some indication about abstract submission.

The abstract body text is limited by 2200 characters (with spaces). Abstracts must be assigned to Mini-Symposia. If the topic of your contribution does not fit into any of the current Mini-Symposia, submit it as "other/general". The organizing committee will make appropriate attribution.

Check the list of accepted Mini-Symposia to make the correct selection for your submission.

Best Paper Award for Ph.D student

How to qualify for the Best Paper Award?

The organizing committee must receive a nomination by the supervisors of the Ph.D student and the paper must be accepted for the Proceedings. The dealine for nominations is 31st of May. The nomination does not have to include specific details, just information regarding the student's name and the submission number.

To be eligible for the award the candidate must

  • present a document certificating that he/she is currently enrolled in a Ph.D programme

  • be the first author of the paper 

  • present the paper in-person during the conference

Evaluation criteria

  • the scientific level of the paper and its new contributions

  • the level of maturity and dominance of the student in the subject, which is presented during the oral presentation

 

The winner will be announced during the closing ceremony.

The certificate will be issued by Springer Nature and the winner will be invited to submit the extended paper for the special issue in the Journal of Vibration Engineering Technologies (JVET). More details are below.

As far as monetary recognition is concerned, the winner's registration fee will be refunded.

Post-conference special issue

  • Extended and significantly updated proceedings papers can be subsequently submitted for publication in the Special issue.
  • Alternatively, authors who presented during the conference in conformity with an accepted Abstract can also submit their papers to the Special issue.
  • Submissions of extended and significantly updated proceedings papers to other regular journals is also possible, within the generally accepted ethical scientific limits

The Journal of Vibration Engineering Technologies (JVET) provides a forum for the rapid publication of original research in the field of vibration engineering.  The scope of the journal includes vibration phenomena associated with mechanical, aerospace, structural and electromechanical systems. Review articles and original contributions based on analytical, computational, and experimental methods are solicited.

JVET is a Transformative Journal (TJ). Once the article is accepted for publication, authors will have the option to choose how their article is published:

  1. Traditional publishing model – published articles are made available to institutions and individuals who subscribe to Journal of Vibration Engineering & Technologies or who pay to read specific articles.

  2. Open Access – when an article is accepted for publication, the author/s or funder/s pay an Article Processing Charge (APC). The final version of the published article is then free to read for everyone.

Nevertheless, independently of the selection of each accepted article in the WMVC special issue, thanks to the involvement of the editor-in-chief Prof. C. Nataraj, Springer Nature will make the complete issue freely accessible for 6 weeks once it is published online.
