Do not include author details, university or country information in the manuscript. This is a double blind peer review process. Author information should be supplied using the manuscript submission form online or in the cover letter for email submissions.
Please ensure all articles are proofread and checked for accuracy prior to submission. Changes cannot be made during the review process. If accepted, minor revisions may be made prior to final submission.

Papers must follow format according to the downloadable template
The review process will be double-blind. Therefore, please anonymize your submission. This means that all submissions must contain no information identifying the author(s) or their organization(s): Do not put the author(s) names or affiliation(s) at the start of the paper, anonymize citations to and mentions of your own prior work that are directly related to your present work, and do not include funding or other acknowledgments.
Each paper will be reviewed by at least three regular PC members or two senior PC members. The acceptance decisions will take into account paper novelty, technical depth, elegance, practical or theoretic impact, and presentation.
Original: the paper explores a new idea, project or issue; discusses existing research with promise of new insight, discusses new research; or presents new ways of considering existing information
Engaging: presentation format will involve the audience in some way, or has high potential to attract conference attendees by addressing needs of the community
Significant: the paper raises and discusses issues important to improving the effectiveness and/or sustainability of open education efforts, and its contents can be broadly disseminated and understood
Quality: claims are supported by sufficient data; claims draw upon relevant literature; and limitations are described honestly
Relevant: the paper addresses one or more of the themes of the conference
Post Conference Publication and Indexing
All FTC 2017 presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted for indexing to IEEE Xplore, Scopus, Inspec, Google Scholar and more. The IEEE proceedings will be published under an ISBN number (and an IEEE Catalog number), under a nonexclusive copyright. Such copyright implies that Events' organizers can and, indeed, are strongly encouraged to invite extended and revised papers for post-conference publications. The conference proceedings USB and Certificate of Presentation will be distributed to the conference participants at the conference registration desk. Authors of selected outstanding papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for consideration of publication in the following:
Springer Book Series - Studies in Computational Intelligence, Indexed by DBLP, Ulrichs, SCOPUS, MathSciNet, Current Mathematical Publications, Mathematical Reviews, Zentralblatt Math: MetaPress and Springerlink.
International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications(IJACSA), Indexed by Thomson Reuters, Web of Science, EBESCO, DOAJ, Inspec and many more
No Show Policy
For each accepted paper, at-least one author needs to attend the conference, and present the paper in the assigned session.
The IEEE has implemented policies to exclude authors who do not present their paper from further distribution of their publication, such as exclusion from IEEE Xplore. Such papers will not be indexed or appear in IEEE Xplore.
The presenter should start all necessary procedures and approvals (e.g., travel funding, visa application) immediately after receiving notification that the paper is accepted for the conference.
