Publication of Conference Proceedings

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts for the conference proceedings book. The manuscripts should be submitted online via special access in the web of Springer (link to the access page will be given soon). We will also soon provide a template for you to prepare your manuscript with a maximum extension of 4 pages.

The proceedings will be published by Springer several weeks after the conference. The manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by the organizing committee and the international advisory board.

To submit your finished papers please go to:


Special Issue in AEM

The speaker should bring his presentation in an USB. They should provide it in advance to the members of the organization (at least before the starting of the session) and introduce themselves to the chairman of the session. The presentations will be run in a computer provided by the organizing. Computers from the speakers will not be permitted to avoid losing time in connecting them.


Poster will be displayed in the conference site during the conference. The maximum size for each poster is 800 mm (width) and 1000 mm (length). Each author should bring his poster on August 30th or August 31st, to include it in the posters area. The poster session will take place on August 31st. The material to place each poster in the poster boards will be supplied by the organization.
