Call for Papers

The Call for Papers (pdf) is here.

The submission of industrial abstracts is over, thank you for your contributions. The industrial abstracts are one-pagers using the same format as scientific papers. Extra pages can be used, but an overpage charge is applied. The industrial papers accepted in the review will be printed as such to allow as short as possible lead time from submission to publication.

The submission of scientific papers is over, thank you for your contributions. The submission of a scientific paper should be a draft full-length paper in two-column format, no more than 4 pages, in pdf format. The final paper format templates are here:

For LaTeX, be sure to use the template's conference mode. See template documentation for details. Make sure to eliminate Type 3 fonts from your document BEFORE submission. E.g. use the following type of definition


with the times font leading to the use of vector graphics instead of bitmaps.

The papers may be accepted for oral or poster presentation. The decision of the presentation format will be made by the program chair, based on the comments from paper review. Independently of the presentation type, all papers are included in the proceedings. Extra pages can be purchased. The industrial papers lead always to an oral presentation on a separate industry forum track interleaved with the scientific/invited programme.
