Submission Preparation Checklist
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission’s compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, document file format.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- The text is single-spaced; uses a 10-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points and applicable acknowledge sources, rather than at the end.
All HBRPI papers are presented in the conference in lecture style presentation. The authors acknowledge that accepted papers need to be presented in person at the conference by one of the authors of the paper.
1. Each lecture style session room will be set with an LCD projector. Please bring your own laptop or prepare a soft copy in an external memory drive.
2. Each lecture style presentation is allocated 20 minutes (or depending on the number of papers in the session). You should spend about 18 minutes for presentation of the problem, the background, the innovative approach, the new results and the comparative evaluation. An additional 2 minutes should be available for discussion with the attendees.
3. The presenter should prepare a reasonable number of illustrations – transparencies or a Power Point file, so as not to exceed the 18 minute time. Typically, one (1) illustration is presented in one to two minutes. Additional illustrations could be prepared to support possible answers to attendees’ questions.
4. Each illustration should not be crowded by text and graphics. Too much text should be avoided: illustrations should support the presentation; they should not be simply read by the presenter. Graphics help in communications, are more understandable, and point out the basic ideas.
Use large fonts so they can be read without a major effort; typically 18-20 point fonts should be used.
5. Presentation should be clearly structured. Begin with a title page. The index of the presentation should outline the presentation. The basic problem should be clearly stated, as well as the application area. Background and previous work should be summarized to provide a prospective for the results presented in the paper. The innovative approach should be clearly stated. The application of the approach to the application problem should be described, by pointing out the main features and characteristics, the problems and the solutions. The results should be clearly outlined and evaluated. Appropriate comparison with previous results should be presented. Conclusions should summarize the work performed and point out the main innovation and results. Recommendations and developments could also be sketched.
