Instructions for Authors and Paper Submission

Submission Types

There are two types of contributions, which are chosen on the online submission page accessible through the link on the bottom of this page: 

  1. Type 1: Research papers presenting original scientific contributions (these submissions undergo an international peer review process and accepted papers are published in the online workshop proceedings). 
  2. Type 2: Other submissions such as research group overviews, project activity reports, presentation of work published elswhere, presentation of industry projects, and any other relevant information for the research community (these submissions DO NOT undergo peer review). For this type of submission only authors, title, and abstract are entered, but no PDF document is required. Submissions of this type are NOT included in the Proceedings, but are a valuable part of the Workshop's program.
