Publications Options

For papers submitted to BTSym’22, we offer publishing as follows:

  • Option A - Publication in Conference Proceedings of Springer Nature: After peer reviewed by at least 2-3 experts, all the accepted papers will be published into International Proceedings published by Springer Nature, in the form of a book. This process of publishing is limited to 60 papers (10 pages per paper, including all figures, tables, and references). Extra pages may be charged at R$:100,00 per page.

  • Option B - Publication in Conference Proceedings of BTSym’22: After peer reviewed by at least 2-3 experts, all the accepted papers will be published into national Proceedings published by LCV (Laboratory of Visual Communication). This process of publishing does not have submission amount limitation. Paper submission should be between 3 to 6 pages. Paper extending 1 or 2 pages at most will also be considered. 


  • Articles should be preferably submitted in English to the Conference Proceedings of BTSym’22.

  • Authors and Attendees will receive BTSym'22 certificates.

  • The approved articles, not invited to make an oral presentation, will be invited to make an poster presentation of your article in the poster section. In this case, in addition to the article to be published, the author should develop a poster.
  • Author Ethics and Copyright: To ensure objectivity and transparency in research and to ensure that accepted principles of ethical and professional conduct have been followed, authors should include information regarding sources of funding, potential conflicts of interest (financial or non-financial), informed consent if the research involved human participants, and a statement on welfare of animals if the research involved animals. In this case, organizers will reject such submissions and remove them from Conference Proceedings. Compliance with Ethical Standards, that are detailed on the following page, must be observed: pdf ,
  • Plagiarism Policy: Plagiarism can be unintentional or intentional when ideas, figures, data, and creative work are used but not cited in academic, professional, and personal work; you should properly cite a reference to the original work. We are profoundly aware that high-quality scholarly research is highly demanded. Due to this, we take reasonable steps to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred, including plagiarism, citation manipulation,  data falsification/fabrication, and Self-plagiarism. Note: The submitted manuscript is checked from licensed plagiarism software like Turnitin.


Submission Instructions

All submissions will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability. Submissions will be chosen based on technical merit, interest, applicability, and how well they fit a coherent and balanced technical program. We firmly believe that ethical conduct is the most essential virtual of any academic. Hence any act of plagiarism is a totally unacceptable academic misconduct and cannot be tolerated.
