This page details guidelines for both the paper authors and the reviewers. Please find the appropriate section below.
Abstracts, full papers and revised full papers should be submitted through the conference website at Easychair.
For abstracts, there are no templates or special requirements. Please read the guideline for submissions in Easychair:
Full Paper Submission
The proceedings of 8OSME consisting of all accepted full papers will be made available at the meeting, which will then be published as a book entitled "Origami8". Please follow the instructions below to enable us to edit and compile the proceedings efficiently and to complete the book in time for the meeting.
(1) Please prepare your paper using the available MS Word or LaTeX templates. Both files also contain information on formatting. Please make sure that you do NOT change the formatting (fonts, margins, etc.) in any way for this is the format for the proceedings. Once you have completed your paper, save/print/export to a PDF file and then submit it. Only submission in PDF format is accepted. Any non-compliant papers will be returned to the submitting authors and may be rejected.
(2) The maximum length of the full paper is 16 pages. Again we shall reject any non-compliant papers.
(3) Coloured figures will appear in colour in the electronic version of the proceedings but black and white in print. Please make sure that they are legible in grayscale.
(4) Please log into your existing Easychair account, find your abstract submission, and then use "Add file" button on top right to submit your full paper.
If you are invited to poster sessions, please prepare your poster in either A0 portrait format (width 841 x length 1189 mm), or ANSI standard paper size E portrait format (width 34.0 x length 44.0 in). Formats other than those can NOT be accepted as the fixed glass frames in the venues are in these dimensions. There will be no need to submit anything for now.
Posters may be printed locally in Melbourne, and we will be issuing guidelines for printing posters nearer the meeting.
The emphasis of 8OSME is the presentation of academic papers. However, we will be running a series of more informal workshops in conjunction with the main program. These could include general discussions of an applied origami idea, presentation of a book written by an author, or sharing and teaching a model that may have useful kinetic properties, or be useful in education.
Workshops materials will not be published in the 8OSME proceedings, but workshops will be a forum to share ideas and participate with the conference.
If you would like to present a workshop please submit a proposal to us at 8OSME@swin.edu.au.
Model Instructions and Diagrams
Working in conjunction with the Melbourne Origami Group we will be publishing a joint model collection. If you wish to share any model instructions that may be relevant to 8OSME, in terms of educational benefit, explaining a mathematical principle, has a kinetic property that may be of interest to engineers, please share it with us for publication.
Please email all diagrams to 8OSME@swin.edu.au with the subject title "Model Instructions and Diagrams".
If authors have problems in submission through Easychair, or formatting, please feel free to contact us: 8OSME@swin.edu.au.
