Instructions for authors

Submissions are welcome for oral communications, for posters and for software demonstrations.

Abstracts for oral communications, posters and software demonstrations must be submitted through EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nettab2017 for the proper evaluation.
Accepted abstracts must then be submitted as preprints to Peerj Preprints for inclusion in the related Proceedings Collection.
They will only be considered for the publication in Collection: they won’t be published in the web site. No Copyright form or permission is required for abstracts, since the proceedings will be based on preprints.

Authors of all abstracts presented at the joint event, both as oral communication and as poster, will be invited to a Call for papers that will select best scientific contributions from the event for a Special Issue in an International Journal with IF.
