Journal publication after MARSS2019
Prof. Hongsoo CHOI (DGIST, South Korea) kindly agreed to serve as Publication Chair and oversee the Journal publication after the conference.
The Organization Committee will select high-quality full papers presented at the conference and submit Special Issue proposal to the Journal of Micro-Bio Robotics (Springer). The Journal will evaluate the proposal and decide on publication of a Special Issue related to MARSS2019. In case of a favorable decision, the authors will be informed and asked to submit an extended version of the conference paper.
The Journal will then start a standard peer reviewing process, according to own regulations. Finally, if the number of accepted papers originated from MARSS2019 is sufficient, the Journal will publish a MARSS2019 Special Issue. If the number of accepted papers is too small to justify a Special Issue, then they will be published as regular Journal submissions.
Please be aware that a final decision on publication will always be made by the Journal and not by the conference.
