Instructions for authors and presenters

Full papers and extended abstracts for MODSIM2021 will need to be formatted in accordance with the Word documentInstructions for authors. Please use the templates provided below.

Please note: you can submit either:

  • an extended abstract (max 1 page) or
  • a full paper (max 7 pages, including an extended abstract on the first page).
You are not required to submit any form of shortened abstract before you submit your full paper. Your only submission should be the full intended final version in the correct template.

The extended abstract should be a complete description of the problem area, broad findings and outcomes or implications and should hence be self contained.

The extended abstracts/full papers will be reviewed by independent reviewers and may require revision before publication.

Extended abstracts should be formatted using the same template as the full papers, using the first page only. They can include 300–500 words, plus affiliations and keywords.

Papers and extended abstracts should be submitted in Word or PDF format (if generated from LaTeX).

The instructions for authors, a template file and an example paper are available in Word and LaTeX format.

Note that authors have the option to include their ORCID iD. See the examples in the templates. More information about ORCID is at

Submissions are not yet open online. We should have the system open for submissions in May or June.
