Conference Proceedings

All accepted papers (max. 3 pages) after the pre-conference peer-review process will be published as chapters in the conference proceedings by Springer. The registered author of each accepted paper will receive a “Certificate of Acceptance” certifying that the paper has been accepted for publication in the conference proceedings and also for presentation as an oral or poster communication during the conference.

The conference proceedings will be published online at SpringerLink in the book series “Advances in Science, Technology and Innovation” (ASTI). All authors will receive a copy of the proceedings during the conference.

Note that only authors of accepted papers in the conference proceedings (after pre-conference peer review process) will be allowed to present during the conference sessions (see Important Dates).


Oral Communications

There are two types of oral communications: a Podium presentation or a Poster presentation. The type chosen will depend on the author’s stated preference and the decision by the scientific committee.

  • originality and newness of contribution;
  • appropriate application of methodology;
  • effective communication of the central ideas of the work.

All winners will be presented with a commemorative certificate and will be acknowledged during the closing ceremony.
