In case of acceptance, authors are requested to submit a full paper (4+1 pages: 4 pages text and one additional page with references only) and to present the paper at the workshop.

The conference will be conducted in English. Papers must be written in English.

EDAS is used for paper submission: edas.info/N21283


Paper Preparation Guidelines

Authors must submit their papers in DIN A4 format. Paper submissions must conform to the format defined in the paper preparation guidelines as well as the provided Author’s kit.

Authors must declare that their contributions are original and are not submitted for publication elsewhere (e.g. another conference, workshop, or journal).

The Author’s kit comprising templates for LaTeX, LibreOffice and MSWORD can be downloaded here. Latex users who are using Biblatex may add the bibliography as follows \printbibliography[title={References}, heading=bibnumbered].


Creation and Proofreading of Final PDF
It is the author’s responsibility to ensure that submitted papers use the correct styles, fonts, etc. Paper submissions must be in PDF format. The PDF file should comply with the following requirements:

  • There must not be any password protection on the PDF file
  • All fonts must be embedded
  • The file must be ready for text search (i.e. CTRL-F can be used to find a common word in the text such as ‘Conclusion’)

All authors must proofread their PDF file prior to submission to ensure it is ready for publication if the paper is accepted. Authors should not rely on proof-reading the source document – please proofread the PDF file. The proceedings editors will contact authors of non-complying papers to obtain a replacement, to be submitted by a specified date. To ensure that there is no delay to conference proceedings, papers for which a replacement is not provided by the specified date, will be excluded form the proceedings.
