How to contribute

We appreciate your interest in a conference contribution to ACTUATOR 2018!

To ensure a reliable handling of your abstract(s) we make use of the OpenConf Abstract and Peer-Reviewing System already proved since ACTUATOR 2012. In the Download area below we you will find the pdf version of the current Call for Papers and detailed Guidelines for Submitters as well as for Reviewers ready for download.

The Guidelines for Authors with detailed guidelines for the layout of the manuscripts will be published in January 2018. 

If there is any additional question, please do not hesitate to contact the organiser.

Your access to OpenConf

OpenConf offers a performance very close to the procedure we are all familiar with:

Authors, reviewers (committee members) as well as the organisers do have their personalised access to the online database. Although having already uploaded the files, authors can modify and reload them later on, provided the final deadline has not been reached. You can even withdraw the contribution or watch its status during the evaluation process. At any time you are aware of your personal data, the status of your submissions, the number and quality of abstracts received, and, of course, the evaluation status after the deadline. And all this is performed within a secure https connection.

This is your entry to OpenConf!
