Excellent full papers submissions can be selected and recommended to be published in journals including Composites Science and Technology, Composites Part A, Composites Part B, Composites Communications, International Journal of Minerals, Metallurgy and Materials, and Acta Materiae Compositae Sinica. Journals can reject the paper for not meeting the quality standards and has the following policies on conference publications:

1. Papers submitted need to have a minimum length of 3 pages.
2. Papers should have no more than 40% overlap with prior publications.
3. Every paper should include references and the amount of references should be proportionate to the work.

Presented full-length papers that satisfy quality and technical scope requirements will be included in the ACCM12 Proceedings, which will be submitted for publication in publishing journals. There is no additional publication charge for full papers with 10 pages or less. The one-page abstracts will not be included in the final ACCM12 Proceedings.
