Abstracts and full papers must be in English. Detailed information for authors on style, including abstract and paper length, format, etc., and the templates are available on the symposium website.
All accepted papers will be included in the symposium proceedings, some of which will be published in a special issue of Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industries depending on the evaluation of the peer-reviewing process and best paper/presentation award committee. All accepted papers should make oral presentations at the symposium by an author.
Instructions for Abstracts
The abstract will primarily be evaluated with respect to relevance for the scopes of the symposium, and the work does not have to be complete at the time of submission. It should state briefly the purpose of the research, the methodology followed, and, to the extent possible, the principal results and major conclusions.
The entire abstract must fit on one A4 page (210×297 mm) in length with standard margins of 2.5 cm on all sides, including the title with author name(s), affiliation(s) and corresponding email, the main body with text, figures, tables, references and keywords.
The main part of the text should be written in 12 point Times New Roman. The paragraph and line spacing should be 3 points and single, respectively. The footer should not be modified.
Instructions for Papers
The paper should be no more than 15 A4 pages (210×297 mm) in length with standard margins of 2.5 cm on all sides. It should include a title with author name(s), affiliation(s) and corresponding email, abstract and keywords followed by sections containing an introduction, the main body of text, conclusions, acknowledgements, and references.
The main body of the text should be written in 12 point Times New Roman. The paragraph and line spacing should be 3 points and single, respectively. The footer should not be modified.
For figures, the quality of labeling, line thickness and other details should be suitable for archival publication, and any photographs must be provided as glossy prints. Ensure that each illustration has a caption, which should be placed below the illustration. A caption should ideally comprise a brief title and a description of the illustration to minimize amount of text within the illustration.
Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Table captions should be placed above the tables. The numbers should not include the number of the section (or chapter). Place footnotes to tables immediately below the table body and indicate them with superscript lowercase letters. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article.
All references should be extensive, i.e., containing the full list of authors, year, publication title, full journal title, volume, issue, pages (for journals); year, book title, publisher, edition (for books).
