What is Paper Number?

Let us suppose you, as a corresponding author, will submit a first paper with TITLE A.
That means the number for this paper is 1. (simply because you submitted it first in the current publishing year)

The paper number for the next, second paper, with TITLE B, will be 2 and so on…
Each time you submit a paper (either as an abstract, or for a review, or as a corrected paper), the paper number has to be associated with the TITLE of the paper.

Example:
a) You select the following for an abstract with TITLE A:
Paper type: Symposium Paper (Regular)
Paper number: 1
Status of Paper: Abstract for Review

b) You select the following for paper for review with TITLE A:
Paper type: Symposium Paper (Regular)
Paper number: 1
Status of Paper: Paper for Review

c) You select the following for corrected paper with TITLE A:
Paper type: Symposium Paper (Regular)
Paper number: 1
Status of Paper: Corrected Paper according to Review Results
