CFD Computational Fluid Dynamics
Ninth International Conference on
Computational Fluid Dynamics
in the Minerals and Process Industries

10-12 December 2012, MCEC, Melbourne, Australia

AUTHOR INFORMATION

The Proceedings of the Conference will be published on digital media and the abstract only will be distributed in a hardcopy booklet.

The Scientific Committee of the Ninth International Conference on CFD in the Minerals and Process Industries will evaluate all submitted full papers, with each paper being independently refereed by at least two international experts in the field.

It is intended to have both oral and poster presentations at the conference. Full written versions of both the oral and poster papers will be included in the proceedings and the format for each is identical as described below.

Poster Format Details are:
We have allowed for A0 sized posters.
Each poster will have a 1.2m wide x 2m high board.

Authors should note the list of deadlines.

The conference organising committee has arranged for selected papers to be published in special editions of the following journals: Applied Mathematical Modelling, Progress in Computational Fluid Dynamics and  The Journal of Computational Multiphase Flows.

Deadline for receipt of the full paper is 30 June 2012

Abstract submissions have now closed. Please contact Ali Green at cfd@minerals.csiro.au if you wish to submit an abstract and have extenuating circumstances.

Paper Submission

For refereeing, an electronic copy of the paper is required, which can be in either Microsoft Word format, or else PDF.

Authors are also required to complete the copyright release form (right click to save to file).

Both of these files, together with any supplemental material (for example, animations) must be submitted using the online form here.

Note that all animations and files additional to the paper and copyright files need to be combined into an archive .zip or .tar.gz file for uploading via the paper submission site.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS

Introduction

A sample format of a pdf page can be downloaded here showing the layout and style for headings, tables, figures, references etc.

Documents templates are available for MS-Word download (right click to save to a file) or a rich text version can be downloaded (right click to save to a file).

Paper size is to be A4.

The length of the paper is limited to six pages.

Page layout is double column of width 75mm with 10mm between columns.

The main text is single spaced with a 9-point, Times New Roman font.

It is intended to include papers in the conference proceedings, which will be a digital volume (eg. CD-ROM, USB drive etc.).

The paper should be in English and contain the following elements in the order shown:

Title
Author names and addresses (underline the presenting author)
Abstract (no more than 150 words)
Nomenclature list
Text of the paper
Acknowledgements
References
Appendices


Title

The title should be concise and clearly reflect the contents of the paper. It should be in bold, centred, 12-point Arial font.


Abstract

The abstract should give a clear indication of the objective, scope and results of the study presented in the paper. It should provide keywords for indexing purposes.


Nomenclature

Nomenclature should be listed in alphabetical order with the Greek symbols following the English symbols.


Text

The text should be divided into sections describing the objectives, the description of the problem, the method of solution and any other relevant information. The text should also include discussion of any results presented and list the author’s conclusions. SI units should be used throughout.

Figures and tables should be embedded in the text and should appear as close as possible after the first reference to them. The figures should be of good quality to ensure satisfactory reproduction. Authors are encouraged to include colour figures. Both figures and tables should be numbered consecutively and have a caption beneath them. Tables and figures which extend over the whole width of the page should be placed either at the top or bottom of the page.

Subheadings may be used to divide the subject in any given section into logical parts.

Equations should be numbered consecutively beginning with (1). The number should be set flush right in the column. Care should be taken to avoid confusion between lower case "l" (el) and the number one.


Acknowledgements

Individuals and institutions that have made a significant contribution to the contents of the paper may be acknowledged.


References

References must follow the style indicated in the example.


Animations

Animated result files for inclusion in the digital proceedings should be in either mpeg or avi format. Multiple animations can be included but the total size of the animations must be less than 7 Mbytes. A brief title string for each animation should also be provided in an accompanying text file.

All animations and other additional files need to be combined into an archive .zip or .tar.gz file for uploading via the paper submission site.
