Abstract Submission

Abstract submission is now closed.

Abstract Review & Acceptance

Submitted abstracts will undergo review by the technical scientific committee. Notification of acceptance/rejection will be sent by end February 2023.

Accepted abstracts will be scheduled for presentation at ENC 2023. To ensure scheduling of accepted contributions in the final ENC 2023 program, the presenting author must be registered as an ENC 2023 delegate by 24 March 2023. Failure to register for ENC 2023 by the set deadline will lead to the withdrawal of your abstract(s).

Scheduling notifications with the assigned timeslots of your presentation(s) will be sent by end April 2023.

Full Paper Submission

Authors of accepted abstracts have the option to submit a full paper. The deadline for full paper submission was 15 May 2023.

Paper Review & Publication

Submitted papers will undergo a further peer review process. Papers will be reviewed against the Paper Guidelines below. Note that submission of a full paper is not required for presentation at the conference, but papers submitted for publication will only enter peer review if presented at the conference.

Review comments on submitted papers will be sent to the authors by 30 June 2023 23 July 2023. If any revisions are required, revised papers will be due within three weeks of receipt of the review comments.

Accepted papers will be published in a dedicated volume of the Open Access journal Engineering Proceedings (ISSN 2673-4591) and in the Conference Proceedings e-Book (with ISBN), both published by MDPI. The Creative Commons CC BY 4.0 license will apply, meaning authors retain copyright and the content can be reused with attribution. All published papers will be assigned a digital object identifier (DOI) and citable.

In addition, the best paper which is in the scope of the IEEE Journal of Indoor and Seamless Positioning and Navigation (J-ISPIN) will be invited to submit an extended version of the paper to J-ISPIN and will benefit from a total waiver of the J-ISPIN publication fee.

Paper Guidelines

Papers should be written in clear English language. Paper length must be between 4 and 9 pages. Note that this refers to the total page count (including abstract, references, appendices, etc.). The paper length requirement must be strictly complied with.

Papers should cover high-quality scientific work and create an advance towards the current knowledge that is of interest to the scientific community. Papers should not have not been previously published or submitted elsewhere. Papers must be original and include references where appropriate.

Paper Templates

You can download the applicable MDPI templates in Microsoft Word and LaTeX format here. Papers must strictly comply to these templates provided by MDPI. Note: Updated templates (v02) were posted in April 2023. You can also continue using the original (v01) templates.

Paper Submisson

The MDPI Sciforum platform is used for paper submissions and reviews. The practical steps to submit a paper are detailed in the Paper Submission Procedure document. Please read the information in this document carefully.

Two steps are required. The first step can be done at any time before your paper is ready. It is recommended to complete the first step as early as possible. The second step is the actual submission of the paper:

  • For manuscripts in Word format, upload your .docx or .doc file.
  • For manuscripts in LaTeX format, upload a .zip file containing your original LaTeX file(s) and a PDF version of your manuscript.

Please refer to the Paper Submission Procedure document above for detailed instructions.

Before submitting your paper, please double-check that it complies with all requirements. Commonly encountered problems with submitted files include: exceeding the maximum paper length of 9 pages; not using the templates; for submissions in LaTeX format only: not including a PDF version of the manuscript in the .zip file.
