Full Paper Preparation

Submit your full paper through EDAS

Shorter submissions may be automatically rejected. The full paper should explicitly include the primary results and findings, emphasizing new advances, theories and/or applications so that the program committee will be able to understand the originality and the value of the work. A submission implies willingness to register and present the work if the paper is accepted for presentation at the symposium.

Manuscripts will be reviewed by the Technical Program Committee. Authors of accepted full papers, must submit the final manuscript according to the deadline, register for the symposium, and attend to present their papers. The maximum length for final papers is 6 pages, without exceptions.
