Authors who wish to participate in the conference need to register with the EDAS on-line submission system and then use it to submit their paper proposals.

Authors are invited to submit full length (six pages) papers.

Technical paper proposals will be reviewed, using the online review system, by experts selected by the conference Technical Program Committee for their demonstrated knowledge of relevant topics. The results of the review process will be posted on this website, and authors will also be notified by email. Review results will be ready by the "Acceptance notifications" date shown below.

Authors of accepted paper/s will prepare a final version of their paper/s and will submit it using EDAS. The version of the final paper will be substantially the same as the technical paper proposal but will take into account reviewers' comments.
