Instructions for Author and Submission Guidelines

The whole process of organising the 8th edition of the International Symposium „Technical Textiles – Present and Future” TTPF2023 involves various stages concerning registration, abstract submission, paper submission, acceptance of papers for the symposium and acceptance of papers for publication.

Authors should be aware of the following main phases:

I. Registration and Abstract submission
To register for the 8th edition of the International Symposium „Technical Textiles – Present and Future” TTPF2023, please fill in the Registration form.
The Abstract template can be downloaded from the Templates and must be uploaded via the Registration form.
Notification of abstract acceptance will be sent by email ( to the corresponding author.
The authors whose abstracts have been accepted can prepare their contributions for the TTPF Symposium 2023.
II. Paper submission
From this point on, authors need to know that online submission of papers, peer review and the entire production process will be ensured via the Editorial Manager® for Proceedings provided by Sciendo and operated by the organisers’ editorial team.
The Full Paper Template can be downloaded from the Templates and the paper (camera-ready) will be uploaded via Editorial Manager® platform to go through the review process.
When the corresponding authors log in to the editorial system, they also have access to the EM Instructions for Authors button, which enables a Tutorial for Authors to facilitate the use of the platform.
Other important aspects:
– The title, authors, abstract, keywords and topic should be identical to those of the accepted abstract.
– The camera-ready article must be written in English, follow the formatting of the full paper template and be submitted in Microsoft Word for Windows format.
Articles that do not comply with the guidelines will be rejected without review!
III. Paper acceptance for symposium
All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed for their scientific merit and originality.
After peer review, authors receive the reviewers’ decisions on Editorial Manager® platform from the managing editors: acceptance, minor revision, major revision, or rejection.
In case of minor/major revision, the reviewers’ reports are accessible to the authors (in their Editorial Manager® account), and they must modify their articles in the light of the comments received.
Correction of articles and their resubmission in revised form must be done within the deadline set by the editors to resume the review process.
The managing editors will notify contact authors by email whether the paper has been accepted for the symposium.
On the symposium website, authors will have access to the symposium program, the guidelines for accessing the online symposium sessions where they can present their work, and the Book with Abstracts of their contributions to the symposium.
After the symposium, a certificate will be issued to the presenter and a download link will be provided.
IV. Paper acceptance for publication
Shortly after the symposium, the language editor’s report will be prepared and provided to the corresponding author on the Editorial Manager® account as a final review regarding the improper use of the English language. If English is not the authors’ first language, they should ensure that the paper is proofread by a professional or a native speaker. The editorial team will set a deadline for authors to resubmit final papers revised according to the publication guidelines.
Accepted manuscripts will be published as Open Access Proceedings of TTPF2023 by Sciendo (De Gruyter) with ISBN and DOI numbers for the conference papers and proceedings after Sciendo Publishing announces the final decision.
