Full Paper Submission

Papers submitted to FAIM2024 undergo a double-blind reviewing procedure for publication at Springer's Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering. 
No fee is required for publication of 8-page papers on LNME (Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering)(except extra pages) or other journals.

According to a FAIM Charter, a maximum of 5 co-authorship submissions are allowed per Author. 
Every paper has to be presented by one of its authors and no more than 2 papers can be presented by the same person. 


Top-level full-papers can be submitted directly to Fast-Track system. In this case, the paper should follow the usual format of the journal selected. In this case, Authors can skip the 8-page paper submission. Regarding the FAIM Charter, each Author is elegible to publish ONE paper in Fast-Track system. However, if the full paper does not get approval in the peer-reviewing process, Authors will be invited to submit a short version to be included on LNME.

Guidelines For Authors
  • All papers must comply with the Springer Guidelines for Authors and paper template. Papers not adhering to this formatting will be rejected without review.
  • The author can choose to work with word or latex. More information can be found here. The usage of these templates is mandatory.
  • Each paper is limited to a maximum of 8 pages, including all figures, tables, and references. Authors will be required to pay an extra fee if the number of pages is higher than 8 pages.
  • For the first blind review, no author names, academic titles, or descriptions of academic positions should be included in the paper. After the paper is accepted, author information, affiliations, and e-mail addresses will be allowed to include in the accepted paper.
  • The title, abstract, authors, and affiliations, as well as the order of authors in the ConfTool system, should be the same as in your accepted paper.
  • Use Title Case for the paper title, i.e., capitalizing all main words.
  • The abstract should summarize the content (goal, scientific novelty, practical value, main results, etc.) of the paper in 150-250 words.
  • Self-citations per paper are limited to 3.
  • The language of the paper is English. Submissions in any other language will be rejected without review.
  • Plagiarism is strictly monitored and will be checked by Unicheck. Plagiarized papers will not be accepted for review.
