Abstract paper: Upon many suggestions we received, we decided to offer a new way to contribute to the conference. In addition to the classical submission type (original unpublished work in Springer LNCS style, not exceeding 8 pages), authors can now also submit abstract papers, i.e. original or already published work which might be relevant in the scope of the conference (not exceed 2 pages, in Springer LNCS style).

The authors of an abstract submission can choose to present their work as an oral or as a poster presentation during the conference. To select a poster presentation, please send an e-mail with the title of your submission and your name(s) to Without this information from the authors of an accepted abstract, it will be scheduled as an oral presentation by default.

Notice that an abstract submission will appear in the conference proceedings, but will NOT appear in the Springer LNCS post-proceedings. However, the authors of an original unpublished work accepted as an abstract will have the possibility to submit an extended version of their paper, after the conference, for possible inclusion in the Springer LNCS post-proceedings.
