Publication of Papers – Proceedings

All accepted papers will be published in the Congress Proceedings as Institute of Physics (IOP) open access Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS) and made available at the Congress. It is indexed in Inspec, Scopus and ISI Web of Science (WoS).

IOP Conference Series operates a publishing license, under which authors retain copyright of their papers and they no longer need to sign and submit copyright assignment forms. Any author who wishes to publish in IOP Conference Series must agree to the terms of the license and by submitting a paper for publication it is assumed all authors of the paper agree, in full, to the terms and conditions of the license available online.

In addition, individual Technical Committees of IMEKO (TCs) will be able to put forward a subset of papers (normally between 6-8 papers) presented at the Congress for further substantial extension and modification. Such modified and extended papers could then be considered for publication in Measurement under Special Section.
