Author Guidelines

  • One author, including as co-author, cannot publish more than 2 papers in the Conference proceedings (for each type of publication).

Paper structure (recommendation)
Use the following paper structure (for empirical articles):
- Introduction: to explain the background work, the practical applications and the nature and purpose of the paper.
The body of the paper should contain a primary message with clear lines of thought and validation of the techniques described. Recommended parts: 
- Literature review. Critical analysis of current advances in this area of research.
- Material and Methods. Provide comprehensive details to make the paper reproducible. The techniques already published need to be indicated with a reference: describe only relevant modifications.
- Results. Results need to be completely clear. If the author(s) proposes a new method against the other existing method, a fair comparison between the new results and the old ones would be useful.
- Discussion. This part must explain the significance of the results of the work. Avoid extensive citations and discussions of references.
- Conclusion
- Acknowledgements (when appropriate)
- References
- Appendix (when appropriate)

Theoretical articles may differ from this structure.

Handling of Non-Presented Papers

Authors are expected to attend the conference in person to present their papers and share their ideas. If a paper is included in the proceedings and is later identified as a non-presented paper, it will not be sent to and published. 

Distant/Pre-recorded presentations

Distant/Pre-recorded (video) presentations for all papers are supported.
