Abstracts and papers need to be submitted via the EasyChair conference management system.

Incorrectly formatted papers will be excluded from the reviewing process. Submission must be made as a single PDF file which includes all figures and bibliography.

Submissions are accepted under the following two categories:

Papers should present original research and should provide sufficient background material to make them accessible to the broader community. It should not be submitted in parallel to any other conference or journal.

At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a participant of the workshop and present the paper at the workshop.

Each research paper will be taken through a comprehensive peer review process by an internationally recognized group of experts in the field. Papers will be evaluated along the metrics of a) Quality of Presentation; b) Novelty / Originality; c) Relation to State of the Art; d) Technical Strength; e) Significance of Work; and f) Relevance to Workshop. Every effort will be made to ensure that each paper receives multiple reviews.

Please contact the Program Chairs for any questions / clarifications.
