Authors are invited to submit original research, not being considered for publication elsewhere. Short  papers (max 1500 words) can be submitted to present visionary ideas, work in progress and preliminary research results, whereas full papers  (max 5000 words, and not more than 10 pages) should present substantial results. All papers will be  reviewed by at least two members of the program committee and all accepted papers will be presented at the conference.

Papers must  be written and presented in English and follow the IOS press formatting guidelines

Full papers will be published in the IfGI Prints series (with ISBN) by the Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft AKA GmbH, Heidelberg.
