Authors should prepare an Extended Abstract (3-4 pages) that clearly indicates the originality of the contribution and the relevance of the work. The Extended Abstract should include the title of the paper, names and affiliations of the authors, an abstract, keywords, an introduction describing the nature of the problem and the state of the art in the field of interest, a description of the contribution, the results achieved and their applicability, conclusions, and references.
When the review process has been completed, authors receive a notification of either acceptance or rejection of the submission. If the paper has been accepted, the authors can prepare a final paper that incorporates the reviewers' suggestions.
The format for the final paper is identical to the format for the extended abstract except for the number of pages: the full paper has a required minimum length of five (5) pages and a maximum of six (6) pages.
For your convenience, the Style Manual and Conference Paper templates in various formats are available through the following links:
