For Authors

Abstract and paper submission


Authors of selected abstracts have been invited to submit a full-length paper. Paper should be prepared using the Latex or Word template provided. (Note: please ensure you have the current template, showing “13th SPHERIC International Workshop” and “Galway, Ireland, June 26–28, 2018” in the header.) It is important NOT to add page numbers to the paper. It is recommended not to use much space for standard SPH equations, since readers can be assumed to know the basics of SPH. The compiled proceedings will be distributed electronically to workshop attendees.

Papers should be submitted by 4 May 2018 in PDF format using the form below.

At least one author is expected to register by 11 May 2018 for the workshop. Papers with no registered authors will not be published.

The Libersky Prize will be awarded for the best student paper and presentation. Student authors who would like to be considered for the prize should indicate it with the submission of the paper. To be eligible, the student must be the first author on the paper, and must give the presentation.

The full name of the person who will give the oral presentation at the Workshop.
You should have received this number by email.
Enter the names of the author(s) in the same order as on the paper. Enter the last name or family name first, followed by a comma and the initials.
Upload your paper as a single PDF file. The maximum file size is 20 MB. Please refer to the instructions in the templates linked above.
If you can't see the CAPTCHA anti-spam test below, of if you have any other technical difficulty, please send your paper and all the requested information to the organisers on


Abstract submission is now closed and authors have been informed of the results of peer review.

An abstract should be a 1-page PDF including one or two figures outlining the quality of the results. Abstracts are expected to address the three major review criteria, which are equally weighted:

  • novelty;
  • applicability/expected impact;
  • Improvements / quality of results.

A comparison to reference solutions, where appropriate, will be appreciated. Each abstract will be reviewed by at least three members of the Scientific Committee. Authors will be informed by 30 March 2018 of the results of review, and authors of selected abstracts will be invited to submit a paper and present at the workshop.

Please submit your abstract using the form below, no later than 28 February 2018. Authors should select three keywords and may add additional keywords as required. Authors can also enter their abstract into either the research or application streams, which will be separately reviewed.
