Proceedings and Special Issues

A USB stick with the full papers will be distributed at the Conference. All papers (after at least a 70% revision of the version presented at the conference) will be eligible for publication in special issues of SCI Journals with an Impact Factor, following a standard peer-review process. The Scientific Committee will select the best three contributions for the paper awards. The titles of the journals will be announced in due time.
