Two types of contributions are accepted: Full Paper and Extended Abstract. We will not accept any paper that, at the time of submission, is under review or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or conference. This restriction does not apply to extended abstracts since they are not targeted for publication in the proceedings. The review process is single-blind.
If in doubt, please contact the Publication Chair (
