General Questions

The conference organizers respect and understand the high employment of authors and do their best to accept all good papers for publication. However, the tight deadlines for the publication preparation dictated by the publishing house (Springer) force us to refuse to accept papers that are so late that this leads to a delay in publishing the entire proceedings.

Yes, of course. At your request, we will make for you a certificate of participation and/or a letter of confirmation of the acceptance of your paper for publication.

The requirements of the template must be followed very strictly. These are the requirements of the Publishing House (Springer). They do not accept incorrectly formatted papers and the organizers do not have the resources to format them. Please be careful.

Yes, definitely.
