Please note that the manuscript and copyright form should be uploaded in PDF format while the source files can be uploaded in Microsoft Word or LaTeX. These files must be submitted by June 30th, 2019.

The suggested page limit is 6 pages. The main reason to reduce the page limit to 6 page is that most authors want to submit their extended version to special issues or other journals after conference. However, we allow papers up to 8 pages. Please note the instructions for the special issues which strictly asks that “extended and improved versions of conference papers (at least 50% of new results should be presented, the text cannot be the same even for the first 50% with reused results,  the same requirements for figures, tables, etc no the same as in the proceedings)”
