INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS

The Young Biomedical Engineers and Researchers Conference (YBERC) is a forum of young engineers, doctoral and other university students and researchers for presentation of new innovative ideas in the area of biomedical engineering. The official language of the conference is English.

Authors are invited to submit paper for review. Papers must be prepared in English according to Word template and instructions demanded in it. All accepted papers will be published in reviewed CD/USB conference proceedings with assigned ISBN.

Download template for paper DOC.

Please use strictly DOC template to keep formats and styles (with defined fonts, letters sizes, line spacing etc.) of your paper.

Papers must be submitted both in doc (not docx) and in pdf format.

All accepted papers will be published in reviewed USB conference proceedings with assigned ISBN. Selected papers will be suggested for publication in Clinician and Technology Journal. Authors of these papers will be asked to advance the paper and it will be reviewed by the additional reviewer of Clinician and Technology Journal. Based on their decision (dependent on scientific quality, formal quality, and agreement with the journal scope) authors will be asked to make corrections and provide a final paper text. However, all selected papers will be processed through a standard peer-review process which will be crucial for paper acceptance.

STUDENT COMPETITION AWARDS

The YBERC Student Competition provides a platform for doctoral and other university students to present their research results in the field of biomedical engineering. Awards will be presented for the best oral presentation. Only students who are the first authors of their papers can apply for the competition and they must present the article personally. Students can sign up for the competition during the registration for the conference participation (http://www.yberc.sk/2018/registration/).
