Paper Submission

How to submit your paper 

All papers will be subject to a formal review process and authors may need to undertake some revisions as a result.  The final manuscript will be published in the conference proceedings and be distributed at the conference and SCOPUS and Web of Science. The entire manuscript including text, figures, tables, references and abstracts must not exceed 8 pages. 

Papers must report on original research or on technical developments and their applications, they should contain quality scientific or technical information and must not have been published previously elsewhere. 

Papers should provide information on the experience and use of the new family of A2L refrigerants known as HFOs.  Papers that include comparisons with other low and moderate GWP fluids such as R32, ammonia, CO2 and hydrocarbons are acceptable but these papers will be expected to compare and contrast experiences of those refrigerants versus HFOs. 

 All those accepting the invitation to submit a paper should be aware that:

  • Authors must personally present their papers at the conference.
  • All authors shall comply with the timetable for abstract and full-paper submittal.
  • All authors shall take into account reviewers’ recommendations and comply with the review-process deadlines.
  • All authors shall comply with the document entitled “Guidelines for Authors on the Presentation of Manuscripts” which will be provided.
  • The allocation of papers to streams and themes is at the discretion of the conference organisers and paper may be moved to an alternative stream
