Abstract Instructions

  2. Author Registration:  Register at minimum the “lead (corresponding) author” with EDAS at http://www.edas.info
  3. Abstract Submission: This process registers your paper title, conference track/topic and abstract.  Submit at http://edas.info/N24668. This is a unique site within EDAS system that is for the Complex Adaptive Systems 2018 Conference
    1. Choose paper track
    2. Provide paper title and content of abstract
    3. Provide up to 6 key words
    4. Select topic for which your paper corresponds
    5. Submit
  4. Add co-author(s):  add any co-authors for your paper.  If they do not have an EDAS account, please request them to create one so they can be affiliated with paper and receive communications.

Step 1: Abstract Preparation
A short abstract (200 words maximum).  The text submitted online will be reviewed by evaluators for acceptance.   Abstract will also be required at the beginning of your full-length paper.  Content may be further refined as you write the paper itself, but should not attempt to condense the whole subject matter into a few words for quick reading.   The purposes of an abstract is:

  • to give a clear indication of the objective, scope, and results of the paper so that readers may determine whether the full text will be of particular interest to them;
  • to provide key words and phrases for indexing, abstracting, and retrieval purposes.

Step 2: Author Registration
Submission of abstracts/papers are conducted online utilizing EDAS Conference Services. All authors of paper should have an account with EDAS so that your paper is associated to each and you will receive decision notifications.  If creating a new account, be sure to use a professional email address that is frequently monitored.  All notifications, alerts and updates regarding your paper are sent to this address.

If your address is found, system will send an email with new temporary password - you may retain or change to one easier for you to remember. If your address is not found, system will display an error and you should return to home page and create an account.)

**Your e-mail/password combination MUST be used for future access to system and to upload documents (abstract, review manuscript and final paper). Be careful to keep this information in a safe place.
