The final accepted industrial abstracts will be published in the proceedings as well, if they conform to the specified format. There will not be another round for the industrial abstracts, they will be published as-is in the proceedings, so be careful! An accepted industrial abstract implies an oral presentation slot in the industry sessions. The industry program chair will decide upon the scheduling.
The schedule for industrial abstracts is:
Submitting a paper on either of the tracks is a commitment to send at least one paying participant to the symposium to take care of the presentation.
