  • The main purpose of the abstract is to give the Program Committee information to assist them in selecting the papers to be presented at the conference.
  • The selected papers will be presented in a 20 minutes speech at the symposium (included 5 minutes for Q&A).
  • An abstract will be selected based on the importance and originality of the subject addressed, on its relevance to the conference theme, on the clarity of its expression.
  • The abstract should be a “stand alone” summary that can be used in the compilation of abstracts.
  • The abstract should be in English and no longer than 500 words.
  • The abstract should summarize the main objectives of the paper to be presented and outline its conclusions.
  • Work that has been presented elsewhere, and not updated, will be considered inappropriate.
  • Notification by the Programme Committee will be accompanied by detailed instructions allowing authors to prepare and make the online submission of their full paper.
  • Failure to comply with the deadlines and instructions required will entail not having the manuscript selected and included in the conference proceedings.
  • All abstracts should be submitted on the dedicated plateform before 21 October 2019


The Programme Committee will notify all the authors of its decision  on 25 October 2019.
This notification will include detailed instructions allowing selected authors to prepare and send their finalized paper on the dedicated platform by 14 December 2019  => NEW
