Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session. Please check the website for further information (

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library (

Workshops and special sessions are also invited. If you wish to propose a workshop or a special session, for example based on the results of a specific research project, please contact the secretariat. Workshop chairs and Special Session chairs will benefit from logistics support and other types of support, including secretariat and financial support, to facilitate the development of a valid idea.
