Submitting a paper

Platform presentations
Authors willing to have their papers considered for keynote or platform presentation will be required to submit a full paper of maximum 4 pages (including figures, tables and references) to the conference. A template that can be downloaded from this website must be followed. In order to speed up the review process author must ensure that their submitted papers fulfil the above instructions in order to avoid them to be sent back to them for reformatting.
In addition, after the conference the highest quality papers will be selected and authors will receive an invitation to develop full manuscripts to be submitted for publication in selected journal(s). These invitation do not constitute acceptance and the specific peer review process of those journal(s) will have to be followed. Template for platform presentations
