SP2019 Contribution Types & Policies

SP2019 CfP (subject to updates) accepts the following contributions types. All proposals should be completed using the below application and indicate the type of session you are requesting as well as if multiple contribution types are requested (up to 3 per registered attendee).

  • Conference or Journal Paper (+Presentation) A 20-30 minute long presentation + full paper on mature research results that if accepted will start as a 4-page paper and become an extended 6-8 page scientific paper potentially published in a journal special issue. If the extended paper is rejected or the authors choose not to carry out major revisions requested by the reviewers, the 4-page version will be included in the SP2019 proceedings published by MDPI AG. At least one (co)author must attend the event to defend the paper. (Co)authors shall receive direct communications leading up to and throughout the peer-review process.
  • Briefing (Presentation only, no paper) A 20-30 minute long PPT briefing on any (mature or immature) project, initiative, organization, or otherwise within the conference topics will be showcased during a thematic session at SP2019. The presentation shall be delivered by one of the authors or proxy collaborators, and at least one (co)author must attend the SP019 congress.
  • Clustering Workshop Typically a 90 or 180-minute long (or otherwise proposed time-length) session designed to engage speakers and attendees in a productive interaction and to produce specific outcomes or demonstrate interactive results. Methodology, names of (AT LEAST) 3 REQUIRED registrants, and expected outcomes should be highlighted. If you need support to invite “sister projects” don’t hesitate to reach out via email to the conference chair: Zia.Lennard@R2Msolution.com
  • Posters & Media Scientific & technical poster contributions (or mixed media installations) will be displayed in the exhibition hall (with full visibility to all attendees). The poster may potentially be defended in a dedicated track session, and at least one (co)author must attend the SP2019 congress. Full visibility to all delegates.
