Invited Requested from well-known authorities. May be reviewed at the discretion of the Program Chair.

To complete the Conference Call for Papers, you will need:

  • Conference title

  • Dates and location of the conference
  • Deadline for submission of abstract or paper
  • Description of the conference topic
  • Format for submitting abstract or paper
