Call for Submissions
SPP Paperview accepts manuscript submissions for the 36th Samahang Pisika ng Pilipinas Physics Conference. This year, SPP will accept research papers in two forms:
- Full Article submissions are sent out for blind peer-review before our Editors can decide on manuscript acceptance. These articles will be published in the Proceedings of the SPP. Full Articles must use the 2018 SPP Proceedings template (TeX preferred) that may be downloaded from the SPP Downloads page.
- Extended Abstract submissions will be editorially screened and presented in a separate poster session. These presentations will not be part of the Proceedings, but will be printed in the Conference Handbook. Extended Abstracts are limited to 400 words in paragraph form and must be submitted in plain text.
The Last Call for Submissions deadline is 30 April 2018.
(Submissions made during this last call may not receive editorial decisions by the one month deadline for SRSF requests.)
The Second Call for Submissions deadline is 20 April 2018.
