A peer-reviewed proceedings volume will be compiled from the topics presented at the Workshop. The deadline for submission will be after the workshop so that feedback can be incorporated into the paper.

All presenters are encouraged to submit a full paper, but it is not mandatory. If the presenter does not submit a full paper, only the abstract will be published in the proceedings.

Full paper rules:

  • Deadline for submission: 19 January 2018.
  • The minimum length of the paper is 17500 characters, or about 7 pages.
  • All submitted full papers will be peer-reviewed. Presentation at the Workshop does not automatically grant publication.
  • Your paper, your way: there are no style guidelines except that the paper should meet general academic requirements, including an appropriate number of accurate references and clear reasoning in English. The proceedings volume will be created with LaTeX. If you know LaTeX, you are welcome to use the CEUR-WS “paper1p” style so that your paper will be in the final style right away. Otherwise, your paper will be converted to LaTeX by the committee and that might require a moderate level of cooperation on your part.
