There is a special Poster Track for PhD students and young scientists on the day before the general conference on May 30.

We welcome original, unpublished contributions presenting completed (12-15 pages) or ongoing (10-12 pages) research, as well as experience papers (10-12 papers).

The language of the conference is English. All submissions will undergo a double-blind peer review process.
