    Information for Authors

    As you may already know, Springer has developed a very innovative publishing approach which entails making your work available in as many parallel formats as possible (printed copy, eBook, epub for iPad, Kindle edition etc.). This is also reflected in the preparation of the manuscript and means that all files you submit will be converted and re-formatted according to the Springer branded style. For this reason, it is no longer necessary for you to spend valuable time putting the final touches to the manuscript.


    The following applies to the IFMBE Proceedings:

    • The recommended paper range for the conference proceedings is around 2000-3000 words.
    • Each paper must be submitted with:
      ─ Abstract
      ─ Keywords
      ─ Introduction, methods/materials, results, conclusion/discussion
      ─ Conflict of interest declaration
    • Citations should be numbered
    • Basic Reference Style will be implemented by Springer.
    • Figures should be saved as TIFF with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi.


    Accepted papers presented at the conference will be published in the ICBHI 2019 proceedings in the IFMBE Proceedings Series. The IFMBE Proceedings series is an official publication of the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering. IFMBE Proceedings are indexed by Google Scholar. Thomson Reuters and Scopus index many volumes in their ISI Proceedings and the Scopus database, respectively. Further information: http://www.springer.com/series/7403
