Your submission will be graduated through the following 3 stages:


Stage 1: Abstract Submission
Submit your abstract consisting of 200-500 words.
Please note that abstracts are submitted via an online form and as a result no template exists.
Abstracts will be reviewed by the regional International Scientific Committee (ISC) members.

Stage 2: Full-Length Manuscript Submission
Once your abstract is accepted, you will be required to complete your Full-Length Manuscript Submission.
The Full-Length Manuscripts will then be reviewed by reviewers assigned by the regional ISC members. A copyright transfer form must be submitted with the final manuscript.

Full text papers (in PDF format only) will only be considered if submitted via this online submission portal. In addition, manuscripts must follow the style of the conference and are subject to both peer review and editing.

 The full-length manuscript must be submitted as a PDF file and should be limited to a maximum length of 10 pages (this includes references ect.).
 Keynote papers are limited to a maximum length of 15 pages.


A LaTeX template is not available:
If you are willing to create a LaTeX template for IHTC17, please email ihtc@africamassive.co.za - your contribution will be ackowledged accordingly. 

Stage 3: Final Submission
​​​​​​​ Once your full-length manuscript is reviewed and accepted, you will have the opportunity to amend your manuscript based on reviewers comments and recommendations and upload your final paper for presentation at the conference.
Each accepted manuscript must have at least one author registered upon submission of the final manuscript to ensure that the manuscript appears in the conference proceedings. The manuscripts will be archived in the newly established IHTC Digital Library after the conference.
