Abstract submission


Interested authors should submit a one-page abstract (pdf) to smmso2015@mie.uth.gr


New deadline for submitting abstract: January 23, 2015 (original deadline: January 15, 2015)



Limited access


The number of presentations is limited due to capacity restrictions and the special format of the conference which entails single-track sessions and sufficient time to meet and discuss research. Therefore, it may not be possible to accept all submitted abstracts.



Paper submission


Authors whose submitted abstract is accepted should submit a full-length paper (maximum 8 pages) to smmso2015@mie.uth.gr. The paper will be included in the Conference Proceedings and will be presented at the conference.


New deadline for submitting full-length paper: March 30, 2015 (original deadline: March 15, 2015)


Paper format

The main features of the paper format are:

  • Page size: B5 (18.2 cm x 25.7 cm)

  • Page layout: mirrored margins (top: 2 cm, bottom: 3 cm, inside: 2.5 cm, outside: 2 cm)

  • Text body: Times New Roman 9pt plain; alignment: full; line spacing: single; paragraph spacing: none

  • Section Header: Times New Roman 11pt bold; alignement: full; line spacing: single; paragraph spacing: before: 6 pt; after 3pt

  • Subsection Header: Times New Roman 10pt bold; alignement: full; line spacing: single; paragraph spacing: before: 6 pt; after 3pt

  • References: Harvard style (author, date)

  • Page numbers: Don't include any


To write the paper, download the SMMSO 2015 conference paper MS Word template and edit it.


Alternatively, use another sofware of your preference (e.g. LaTeX) and try to follow in it as closely as possible the format of the MS Word template.


In either case, submit the source file (.doc or .tex) and a pdf file of your paper.
