1. Abstract Submission
Every scientific paper must be preceded by an ABSTRACT.
The abstract has to present the main subject of the paper. The abstract text must not surpass 50 lines/ 3000 characters (including the heading and the name of the author/s, keywords). The ABSTRACT has to be prepared in English language and submitted on-line at MY ARTICLE Section(to get access to this section on-line REGISTRATION is needed).
We have strong peer review process for all the submitted abstracts and manuscripts, type double blinded, to ensure an independent and transparent process between authors and reviewers. The entire peer review process is within 2 - 3 weeks after abstract/manuscript submission, according to the number of submitted manuscripts. The SSA International Scientific & Program Committee is the only competent authority in taking decisions on selection or rejection of the manuscripts, submitted to the conferences and extended sessions. The Committee have a special Reviewer Section with excellent reviewers. All the Reviewers are independent scientists and experts in the respective field.

3. Writing the final MANUSCRIPT
Writing an effective scientific paper is not easy. A good rule of thumb is to write as if your paper will be read by a person who knows about the field in general but does not already know what you did. In addition to the science, pay attention to the writing style and format and prepare your manuscript regarding the conference requirements as follows:
|It is strongly recommended to observe the given paper format: format A4, margins Left/Right 3 cm, Top 3 cm, Bottom 3 cm, empty Header/Footer 1.5 cm, font Times New Roman, size 12, Alignment Justify, Line Spacing Single, Paragraph Before 6pt, Portrait.|
|Every image or a figure used in the text must be numbered with unique sequence. If you have different shapes (line, rectangles, basic shapes, arrow and etc.) or text box objects they must be grouped in one. ALL FIGURES and GRAPHS is better to be COLORED!!!|
|You should number each table serially with Arabic numerals and put table headings above the table – Align Left. If necessary use a smaller font size (11 pt or 10 pt but not smaller) to make tables fit the page size. Tables have to be in the relevant space in the text. (If you have a big table, please do not use Landscape orientation of the page. It is recommended to save it as an image and locate it vertically in Portrait oriented page.).|
|Every text citation must be listed under the heading REFERENCES at the end of the text. In the text, every reference should be quoted at least once with indices in the form: , , …, etc. (but include all names in the reference list in case there are more than one author per quoted material). Maximum number of quoting references is 15 for 8 paged article. Articles with more than 15 references will be forwarded to their authors for correction.|
By submitting an abstract/full paper, every author is declaring that:
...The Author declares that the manuscript is original and in its present form has not been published elsewhere in any form, that it has not been submitted to any journal/proceedings and that it will not be submitted to any other journal/proceedings, if it is accepted for publication in the SWS Conference Proceedings...
...The Author is responsible for the research they have been done and for the results described in the paper...
...If the article is a join work of several authors (co-authors), the Author who submits the article declares that any person named as author (co-author) of the Article is aware about the requirements of this agreement and has agreed to being so named...
...The Author warrants that the article does not infringe upon any copyright, contains no libelous or otherwise unlawful statements, and does not otherwise infringe on the rights of others...
