Submission and Review Process, Associated Journals
Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the scientific committee, mainly for checking adequation with the topics of the conference.
Following the abstract acceptance, the submission of a full-legth paper is mandatory for final acceptance of the communication at the conference. Full lenght papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two referees.
Two kinds of full-length papers will be accepted:
1. Short papers (4 - 6 pages)
2. Long papers (8 - 12 pages)
Both kinds of papers should include significant new scientific data.
For both types of papers, short papers and long papers, the same templates should be used.
The templates for paper preparation can be downloaded here:
After preparation of either a short or a long paper using the templates, it should be submitted as a DRAFT PAPER here.

Only full-length papers accepted for the electronic Conference Proceedings will be presented at the Conference!
Based on the comments of the referees, the accepted papers will be presented either as long oral talk or as short oral talk followed by discussion around a poster. The choice of presentation method will be done by the scientific committee for a good balance of the sessions; the required scientific quality will be the same for long oral or short oral & poster sessions.
