Thank You for Participating

All participants of ASEC 2020 are welcome to submit the extended work to the Applied Sciences.

Welcome from the Chair

Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to join the 1st International Electronic Conference on Applied Sciences (ASEC 2020) that is hosted online by https://sciforum.net/conference/ASEC2020.

Two decades have passed since the first year of the 21st century. The speed of the development of sciences and technologies are growing ever faster today than in the previous century. The field of science is expanding, and the structure of science is becoming ever richer. Because of this expansion and fine structure growth, researchers may lose themselves in the deep forest of the ever-increasing frontiers and subfields being created. This open-access journal, Applied Sciences, was started to help all scientists conduct their own research into the growth of these frontiers by breaking down barriers and connecting the many subfields in order to cut through this vast forest. These functions will allow researchers to see these frontiers and their surrounding (or quite distant) fields and subfields, and give them the opportunity to incubate and develop their knowledge even further with the aid of this multi-dimensional network.

ASEC 2020 aims to promote and advance the exciting and rapidly changing field of all aspects of applied sciences. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

ASEC 2020 will enable you to share and discuss your most recent research findings with the worldwide vibrant community of scientists and engineers in the field.

ASEC 2020 will make your presentation accessible to hundreds of researchers worldwide, with the active engagement of the audience in question and answer sessions and discussion groups that will take place online.

Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the conference committee. The authors of accepted contributions will be invited to produce an extended abstract for the conference proceedings along with a slide presentation of their work. Following the conference, outstanding contributions will be invited to be submitted for publication in Applied Sciences (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/applsci).

ASEC-1 is a new and exciting experience for me that I believe that it is a taste of the future. ASEC will revolutionize dissemination in the field with a brand-new tool for sharing research in an online environment that will preserve the same standards and structure of traditional conferences but will be more inclusive by breaking the cost and time barriers that prevent participation in remote events. ICTs are shaping our world; let’s make them change the way we communicate science!

I hope you will join us and present your work at ASEC 2020, and be part of this thriving online experience.

Kind regards,

Prof. Dr. Takayoshi Kobayashi

  2. The Conference Committee will conduct a pre-evaluation, based on the submitted abstract, of whether the contribution from the authors of the abstract will be welcome for the 1st International Electronic Conference on Applied Sciences. All authors will be notified by 30 October 2020 about the acceptance of their abstract.
  3. If the abstract is accepted for this conference, the author is asked to submit the manuscript optionally along with a PowerPoint and/or video presentation of his/her paper (only PDF), up to the submission deadline of 31 October 2020.
  4. The conference proceedings papers and presentations will be available at https://sciforum.net/conference/ASEC2020 for discussion during the time of the conference, 10–30 November 2020, and will be published in Journal Proceedings.
  5. The open access journal Applied Sciences will publish a Special Issue of the conference and accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the conference itself. After the conference, the Conference Committee will select manuscripts that may be included for publication in the Special Issue of the journal Applied Sciences (the submission to the journal is independent from the conference proceedings and will follow the usual process of the journal, including peer-review, APC, etc.).

Slides can be prepared in exactly the same way as for any traditional conference where research results can be presented. Slides should be converted to PDF format before submission so that we can easily and automatically process them for online display.

Accepted File Formats

  • MS Word: Manuscript prepared in MS Word must be converted into a single file before submission. When preparing manuscripts in MS Word, the 1st International Electronic Conference on Applied Sciences Microsoft Word template file (see download below) must be used. Please do not insert any graphics (schemes, figures, etc.) into a movable frame which can superimpose the text and make layout very difficult.

Manuscript Preparation

  • Paper Format: A4 paper format, the printing area is 17.5 cm × 26.2 cm. The margins should be 1.75 cm on each side of the paper (top, bottom, left, and right sides).
  • Paper Length: The conference proceedings paper should not be longer than 6 pages. The conference manuscript should be as concise as possible.
  • Formatting/Style: The paper style of the journal Proceedings should be followed. You may download the template file to prepare your paper (see above). The full titles of the cited papers must be given. Reference numbers should be placed in square brackets [ ], and placed before punctuation; for example [4] or [1–3], and all the references should be listed separately and as the last section at the end of the manuscript.
  • Authors List and Affiliation Format: Authors’ full first and last names must be given. Abbreviated middle name(s) can be added. For papers written by various contributors, a corresponding author must be designated. The PubMed/MEDLINE format is used for affiliations: complete street address information including city, zip code, state/province, country, and email address should be added. All authors who contributed significantly to the manuscript (including writing a section) should be listed on the first page of the manuscript, below the title of the article. Other parties who provided only minor contributions should only be listed under Acknowledgments. A minor contribution might be a discussion with the author, reading through the draft of the manuscript, or performing English corrections.
  • Figures, Schemes, and Tables: Authors are encouraged to prepare figures and schemes in color. Full color graphics will be published free of charge. Figure and schemes must be numbered (Figure 1, Scheme I, Figure 2, Scheme II, etc.) and an explanatory title must be added. Tables should be inserted into the main text, and numbers and titles for all tables supplied. All table columns should have an explanatory heading. Please supply legends for all figures, schemes, and tables. The legends should be prepared as a separate paragraph of the main text and placed in the main text before a table, figure, or scheme.

Potential Conflicts of Interest

It is the authors’ responsibility to identify and declare any personal circumstances or interests that may be perceived as inappropriately influencing the representation or interpretation of clinical research. If there is no conflict, please state here “The authors declare no conflict of interest”. This should be conveyed in a separate “Conflict of Interest” statement preceding the “Acknowledgments” and “References” sections at the end of the manuscript. Financial support for the study must be fully disclosed under the “Acknowledgments” section.

Copyright

MDPI, the publisher of the Sciforum.net platform, is an open access publisher. We believe that authors should retain the copyright to their scholarly works. Hence, by submitting a Communication paper to this conference, you retain the copyright of your paper, but you grant MDPI the non-exclusive right to publish this paper online on the Sciforum.net platform. This means you can easily submit your paper to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to its publisher (if required by that publisher).
