Abstract submission

You can send your abstracts through our online administration system. Submissions are now closed.

Original 2-page abstracts with illustrations will be accepted for review in pdf format. Papers submitted for review will clearly state:

  • The purpose of the work
  • How and to what extent it advances the art
  • Specific new results and their impact

The degree to which the paper deals with these issues will affect the paper selection. The most frequent cause of rejection of submitted papers is a lack of new results. Only work that has not been previously published at the time of the Conference will be considered. Submission of a paper for review and subsequent acceptance is considered by the Committee as an agreement that the work will not be placed in the public domain prior to the Conference.


The 2-page template can be found here
