To submit an abstract please visit our website

Please note the following important information:

Abstracts should be submitted no later than 12th OCTOBER 2018

You will be informed during December 2018 which type of presentation (oral/poster) your abstract has been selected for.

Please note that if your abstract is accepted for an oral presentation, you must also submit a paper which will be included in the conference proceedings.

We strongly encourage authors to submit an accompanying paper for a poster presentation, and the paper will be included in the conference proceedings.

The final paper is required by 15th January 2019.

After the conference, a selection of papers from the proceedings will be considered for publication in a special issue of an international journals.


The workshop website will be updated on regular basis
