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.
