Paper submissions


PowerPoint template has been developed for use in preparing your presentation.  Its format is very simple to give you as much flexibility as possible.  There is provision for you to include your organisation’s logo on the second and all subsequent slides at the bottom centre.  To do this you should edit the Master slide.

Paper submissions

The administration of the paper submissions and review is being undertaken using Easychair. The HVTT14 site at Easychair is now available to accept the full paper that have been accepted for the conference.  The required format for papers is shown in the following word document.  Papers should be converted into pdf format before being uploaded to Easychair.  You should simply replace your extended abstract with the full paper.

Please note that papers are accepted for HVTT14 on the basis that at least one of the authors will attend the conference to present the paper.

Paper publication

All papers presented at HVTT14 will be published on the IFRTT web-site (  For more technical papers, we will be offering the opportunity for these to be published in an issue of the International Journal of Heavy Vehicle Design.  Papers that are offered for publication in the journal will need to undergo the normal full peer review process.  HVTT14 is committed to being a forum for all stakeholders in the road transport industry to participate.  Not all papers are suitable for publication in a technical journal and whether or not your paper is submitted for the journal publication will have no bearing at all on whether or not it is selected for inclusion in the conference.


The timetable for submission of papers is as follows:

31 July 2016:                           Final papers due

15 – 18 November 2016:       Symposium
