Workshop Format

Technical papers will be presented in the full-day workshop. The authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing original, previously unpublished, complete research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing state-of-the-art research and development. All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of six (6) printed pages (10-point font) including figures.
