Paper can be submitted presenting research results or reviews existing results including empirical or theoretical studies, comprehensive case studies, presentation of project results in their conclusive phase. Each paper should be mainly focused on research, applications or systems using the following guidelines:

  • research papers should describe results that contribute to advances in state-of-the-art software, hardware, algorithms, interaction or human-factors;
  • application papers should explain how the authors built upon existing ideas and applied them to solve an interesting problem in a novel way;
  • system papers should indicate how the implementers integrated known techniques and technologies to produce an effective system.

Posters are welcome about work-in-progress, achievements of initial research, projects in early stages of development, case studies, etc. Poster presentations will be published in the conference proceedings.

Evaluation of submissions is done by double peer-review. Decisions on acceptance will be based on originality, innovation and quality of contribution, on the proposal’s relevance to the conference themes. Accepted contributions will be published in the electronic conference proceedings with ISBN.
