Submission Guidelines

Extended Abstracts must be submitted by April 15, 2012 for peer review. Conference language is English, exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis. Submission entails a commitment that at least one author will attend the event in the case of acceptance and deliver a full paper version prior to the event. Also, authors grant the organizers the right to publish accepted papers in the form of online proceedings or a similar format, to be determined at a later stage. In addition, accepted submissions will be automatically licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license, unless the authors explicitly state in their submission that they wish to opt out of this licensing agreement. We encourage authors to use said license in order to promote open access to scholarly work, although decisions to opt out will be respected and will not influence the review process in any way. In any case, authors of accepted submissions cannot opt out from the basic condition that they grant the organizers the right to publish at least the extended abstract online.
