Prospective authors should submit a three-page summary

  • All authors are asked to use our ECOC Template. Accepted format is PDF.
  • Papers must be written in English.
  • It is the author’s responsibility to submit a correct paper; any errors in spelling, grammar, or scientific fact will be reproduced as typed by the author, if accepted.
  • Your 40 words abstract, which will appear in the conference program, should be an explicit summary of the paper that states the problem, the methods used as well as the major results and conclusions. It should be complementary to rather than a repeat of the title.
