We invite the submission of papers reporting original research, studies, advances, experiences, or work in progress in this area. Two submission types are accepted:

  • Technical papers of up to 6 pages. Technical papers are expected to present technical, scientific, and/or applicative findings, contribute to the knowledge and understanding of problems of interest, and/or present methodological advancements.
  • Position papers up to 3 pages. Position papers may discuss problems, ideas, contribute new perspectives and insights, and will be appreciated for provoking thought and stimulating discussion.
