The abstract should be limited to a maximum of 200 words (body of abstract).
The abstract is a one-paragraph, single-spaced self-contained summary of the most important elements of the paper.
The authors are required to clearly state the context and aim of their study including: introduction, research questions/applied scientific methods, data analysis/findings/main results, and suggestions /conclusions as concise summary of the key points of your research (Do not indent). The abstract must have not more than 6 keywords.
It must be written and sent as Word Document, via our web site.
Abstract preparation - please follow this checklist:

Full Paper publications
1. Conference proceedings
Selected full papers, among those presented as abstracts at IBU-ICASEM 2017, will be published in the conference proceedings which will be available after September 2017. All above papers will be accessible online through the website of the International Balkan University dedicated to ICASEM 2017 (www.icasem2017.ibu.edu.mk).
2. Final paper submission process in journal Facta Universitatis, Series: Mechanical Engineering
a) 50% of the papers should be from the authors from foreign countries (Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Crna Gora are not considered as foreign countries)
b) Papers submitted to the journal should differ from the Conference papers, not just by the format, by in the content as well.
"The FU MechEng guidelines require such submissions to contain a significant amount of new material, that is, material that has not been published elsewhere. New results are desired, but not necessarily required; however, the submission should contain expansions of key ideas, examples, elaborations, etc. of the conference submission. The paper submitted to the journal should differ from the previously published material by (roughly speaking) at least 40 percent. Beside other elements, the paper needs to include a high quality overview of the previous and up-to-date work in the field by other authors as well as a clear statement on the novelty offered by the manuscript."
Topics of the Facta Universitatis, Series: Mechanical Engineering journal: Production Engineering, Thermal and Fluids Engineering, Material Engineering, Structural Design and Optimization, Thermal and Fluids Engineering, Transport and Logistics, Alternative Technology, Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering, etc.
3. Waiting for the approval of other journals that will support the papers publication
