The Conference will host both competitive and poster sessions. Competitive sessions are reserved for presentation of research at a relatively advanced stage of development. The poster session is reserved for research that is at an early stage of development. During the submission process, authors will be asked to choose whether their submission is to be considered for a competitive or for a poster session. Accepted submission will ultimately be allocated to either type of sessions after considering suggestions of referees.
