Manuscript submission

Manuscript submission

Manuscript submission deadline: 28 February 2022, 23:59 CET (extended)

Format requirement

During the first round of review process, author(s) do not have to (necessarily) perform final formatting of the manuscript. However, please note that the overall formatting must be followed. The manuscript paper should be A4 size, 12pt font, 1.5 line spacing (or 21.6pt), font type – Times New Roman or LaTeX. The line numbers must (continuous) be included in the manuscript; see example Reviewers will make suggestions using the line numbers. This will help authors to address the comments precisely.

The manuscript must be submitted through the submission portal. Upload *.pdf file of the manuscript before the deadline. The maximum supported file size is 20 MB. The maximum permissible pages are ten in the final format (IOP Science) therefore make sure your manuscript is not too long.

Use well-structured content and headings in the manuscript, e.g., Introduction, Materials and methods, Experimental setup, Numerical setup, Results and discussions, Conclusions, Future work, Acknowledgements, Author contribution, References. This is not mandatory requirement, but well-structured contents help to maintain uniformity across manuscripts of the symposium.

The organizing committee strongly encourage the authors to use nomenclatures and abbreviations identical to IEC standards (TC4 - hydropower/turbine). This will help to maintain uniformity across the manuscripts and the international standards. It is highly recommended to SI based units and the matric system in the manuscripts. Read additional guideline from IOP Science:


Write authors name preciously in the manuscript to enable accurate indexing and citation. We encourage authors to write ORCID identifiers (if available) along with the affiliation for all authors to avoid ambiguity. If an author’s current address is different from the address where the work was carried out, this should be explained in a footnote or acknowledgement.

Language requirement

Manuscript must be in English language (preferably UK). Reviewers may not make suggestions for grammatical errors and poor sentence structures. Authors themselves are responsible for language correction. Articles should be clearly and concisely written, and be accessible to an international audience. You should aim for consistency within your article in matters such as hyphenation and spelling. All acronyms and abbreviations should be clearly explained when they first appear in the text. We encourage authors to use inclusive language (e.g., ‘they’ instead of ‘he’ or ‘she’) wherever possible.

On completion of the first draft, carefully re-read your paper and make any amendments that will improve the content. When complete, send the paper to colleagues and co-authors, and use their feedback to improve the clarity of the text. When all co-authors are satisfied that the draft is ready to be submitted to the submission portal, carry out one final spelling and grammar check before the submission.


The main purpose of an abstract is to contextualize and describe the work in a concise way and easily-understood manner. This will ensure that the scientific work is found and read by the intended audience. Avoid usage of very specific and highly technical words. Clarity in writing is extremely important in the abstract. Clarity is achieved by providing information in a predictable order. Successful abstracts therefore are composed into following order. (1) General and specific background. Do not add much jargon or description. (2) Knowledge Gap. (3) Method. (4) Main results outcome (5) Conclusion. The maximum permissible length of the abstract is 200 words.
