Development of Materials Science in Research and Education

September 3-7, 2012


Organizers would like to invite all speakers to contribute to the proceedings.

Instructions for Authors
Accepted papers will be published in Advanced Science, Engineering and Medicine (ASEM) journal focused on the publishing of peer-reviewed multi-disciplinary research articles dealing with all fundamental and applied research aspects in the areas of (1) Physical Sciences, (2) Engineering, (3) Biological Sciences/Health Sciences, (4) Medicine, (5) Computer and Information Sciences, (6) Mathematical Sciences, (7) Agriculture Science and Engineering, (8) Geosciences, and (9) Energy/Fuels/Environmental/Green Science and Engineering.

You can download complete Instructions for Authors from ASEM journal web page.
Please, use this template file. Rewrite this sample copy paper but do not change any settings.


Authors are encouraged to submit high quality original research work that has not been published or nor under consideration by other journals or conference proceedings elsewhere.
The submitted contribution must be in English, typed double-spaced on A4 white paper. Use the 12 pt Ariel font for the main text. Minimum length of your contribution using double-spaced is 6 pages, maximum length is 12 pages (text apart from figures).
Authors should submit manuscript electronically as Microsoft Word file to the Organizing Committee: kozisek@fzu.cz, nitsch@fzu.cz.


All manuscripts must be in English, typed double-spaced on one side of the page throughout (including footnotes, references, tables, legends) on A4 white paper leaving at least 1 inch left hand margin.


The first page of the manuscript should have a concise title limited to about 15 words and the names of all authors, complete mailing address for correspondence, telephone, fax numbers and email address. Please indicate with an asterisk (*) the author to whom correspondence regarding the manuscript should be directed.


All manuscripts must contain an informative 150 to 300 words abstract explaining the essential contents of the work, key ideas and results.


It is very important to supply high quality figures in a form suitable for reproduction. All figures, tables, illustrations, photographs should be prepared in such a way that they could be printed in a single column size with a width of 3 1/4 inches or 8.25 cm. Use 14 ARIAL BOLD font for legends and 12 ARIAL font for numbering/wordings in figures, use the same font for all figures. Only if absolutely necessary should figures/tables/photos occupy double columns. Each figure must be referred to in the text and will be printed in black and white unless otherwise instructed by the authors. Each Figure should be submitted on a separate sheet and marked with the name of the author, title of manuscript and figure number. All formulae and figures should be carefully drafted and never drawn freehand. High quality original figures and glossy prints of all photographs are required. Photocopies of the figures and photographs are not acceptable.


Color illustrations are most welcome by the journal as they are effective in conveying complex graphs and photographs. Free color printing at the Editor-in-Chief's discretion, will provide an opportunity to publish color figures/illustrations in print at NO COST to the authors.


Half-tone illustrations should be supplied as clear, glossy, unmounted prints. The author's name, title of manuscript and figure number should be written on the back.


Each table must be referred to in the text. Each table should be typed double-spaced on a separate sheet and identified sequentially by Arabic numerals corresponding to the order in which they appear in the text. Each table should have a brief explanatory title, which should be labeled unambiguously. The position of each table should be clearly marked in the text.


Internationally accepted units of measurement must be used. The units of measurement are used in conjunction with their numerical values; the units should be abbreviated as suggested below. If more commonly used units are adopted, conversion factors should be given at their first occurrence. Greek symbols may be used.
%, ºC, nm, µm (not m), mm, cm, cm3, m, h (or hr), min, s (or sec), µg, mg, g (or gm), kg, cal, kcal, in. (or write out inch), ml [write out liter(s)].
The American Physical Society style guide can be used as a general reference on matter of units, grammar and formatting.


No abbreviations are allowed in the title and abstract and should be defined the first time they are used within the text. The "Advanced Science, Engineering and Medcine" should be abbreviated as "Adv. Sci. Eng. Med." for the citation purpose.


References should be in the proper format on a separate page, numbered in the sequence in which they occur in the text. Cite references numerically as superscripts in the text and list at the end of the manuscript. Do not use abstracts and websites as references. References to papers accepted but not yet published should be designated as "in press". Information from manuscripts submitted but not accepted should be cited in the text as "unpublished observations" with written permission from the source. Avoid citing a "personal communication" unless it provides essential information not available from a public source. For scientific articles, authors should obtain written permission and confirmation of accuracy from the source of a personal communication. References should be listed in the following style. The references must be verified by the authors against the original documents.
