As an author, you are kindly advised to use the paper template available for downloading bellow. This way you have nothing to change in terms of paper and text format. Simply applying the styles defined in the document will be sufficient. Author name, affiliation and complete address are to be placed underneath the title. In case of multiple authorship of a submitted paper, the affiliation and complete address of each author must be specified.

Papers should be written in English and submitted in final camera-ready form. It is mandatory to submit your original work in Microsoft Word format (DOC) by using our on-line manuscript submission system. We will do the final formatting and all necessary format conversions of your paper. Papers must have an even number of pages: 4, 6 or 8. At least 50% of the last page should be occupied by text. If your paper is longer than 8 pages (10 and more), please contact us before uploading it in the interface.

You have to "Make a Submission" and upload your paper by using the on-line interface. All subsequent versions should be uploaded by using the same paper ID and your defined password. We are unable to process files sent by E-mail.

An AECE copyright form will have to accompany your submission. You can get the .PDF form version on-line (see the link bellow). Authors are responsible for obtaining any security clearances. All authors have to sign the copyright transfer form. The signed copyright form has to be scanned and uploaded by using the corresponding copyright form upload interface on the web-site. There are some restrictions regarding the length of the copyright file, so please read carefully the instruction provided there.

Five key words or phrases arranged alphabetically and separated by commas have to be present after the abstract section. A list of key words is available. Try to use only the key words defined here, do not invent other words.

As all papers of AECE are published on-line, including the references, it is mandatory to include permanent links for all references available on-line. References linking to temporary on-line resources are not acceptable. Only permanent links to on-line resources are accepted (CrossRef, PubMed, PermaLink, Handle, or similar). For every reference try to find out (this is not mandatory and not always possible) a permanent on-line link and include it at the end of the respective reference. You may use some free tools for this task (registration required):
