Guide for Authors balls

Authors will have the possibility to publish their contribution.
The papers will be peer-reviewed and published in MATEC Web of Conferences (open access).

Web of Conferences publishes full conference proceedings; therefore, publication proposals can only be submitted by conference organizers and authors cannot directly submit their articles to the publisher.

Article-processing charges
There are no article processing charges for authors; all costs incurred are the responsibility of the conference organizers.

The copyright is retained by the author(s) under the Creative Commons Attribution license, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited.

Authors grant EDP Sciences a license to publish their article and identify EDP Sciences as the original publisher. They also grant any third party the right to use, distribute and reproduce the article in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited.

Download and fill the Publication Right Form.

Policy on re-use
Conference papers may be updated, or enhanced, for further publication as a regular journal article, including submission to journals not published by EDP Sciences. Journal articles derived from work previously published in conference proceedings must contain a substantial amount of new or previously unpublished results. The question of whether there is sufficient additional material to warrant a new publication is a matter for individual journals to decide. To enable informed decisions by journals, we recommend the authors to supply their chosen journal with a copy of their proceedings article, accompanied with a clear statement describing the material reproduced. In addition, a journal article derived from a proceedings paper must include a citation to this proceedings paper.
