Instructions for authors

Submissions are welcome for oral communications and posters.

Abstracts must be submitted through EasyChair at this link for the proper evaluation.
Accepted abstracts must then be revised and resubmitted for inclusion in the Proceedings.
No Copyright form or permission is required for abstracts, since proceedings won’t be officially published.

Authors of all works presented at the workshop will be invited to a Call for full papers that will select best scientific contributions from the event for a Special Issue in an International Journal with IF.
