Authors of accepted papers are invited to submit their camera-ready version electronically through the PaperPlaza Conference Manuscript Management System: click on the link “Submit a contribution to INCOM 2018” and then upload your manuscript in the desired category for the final submissions.

The deadline for the camera-ready submission is March 31, 2018. Please, check the important dates page on the Incom website.

The same guidelines for the preparation of the first submission apply for the final submission, and only files compliant with the IFAC Publications Requirements are acceptable for publication.

The procedure to generate pdf files and compliance and diagnostic tools are provided in the support section of PaperCept; therefore, authors are required to adhere strictly to the conference template, as provided at the following link:

If you used the above template since the first submission, no change should be necessary, but please, check carefully your manuscript.

Camera-ready papers will be accepted with the understanding that the authors will present them at the INCOM. At least one author for each accepted paper is required to register for INCOM before uploading the final version.
