Author may optionally choose to submit a full paper for review.
Authors who would like to present their work but do not wish to contribute a regular paper may select to do so. The abstract deadline is the same as the regular paper (50-100 words). Authors must indicate so during the process of submission of their abstracts.
Research still in early stages and doctoral research proposals can choose to submit their work to this technical forum. A regular paper is not required.
