The conference committee is seeking submissions of papers for oral presentations at the conference in two major categories:
- Full papers - these papers will be peer reviewed by members of the program committee and will be published in a special conference issue with an ISBN.
- Oral presentations - these papers will not be peer reviewed. These papers will be selected on merit by the program committee. Authors must thus provide about 100-150 word abstract.
