Conference Themes

The papers will be scheduled by conference theme; these themes or tracks are listed in the table on the next page. The “Short Name” appears in the interface of the Scientific Sub Committee’s Submissions System. The “Full Title” is the complete name of the theme. The Submissions System and also the conference web site provide descriptions of each theme that defines the scope of each one of these.

Authors should propose a classification of their work associating their abstract to one of these themes when submitting it in the Submissions System. Nevertheless, authors whose papers do not necessarily fit into a classification under these themes are also invited to participate; in this case they should choose theme N 31, “Others”. The definitive classification of a paper into its respective track and technical session in the programme will be confirmed at an appropriate stage.
