Call for Papers

Experts from industry and research institutes wishing to present results of their recent research are cordially invited to submit a paper. Accepted papers will be presented in either oral or poster sessions.

A two­stage review process will be applied:

  1. The Technical Program Committee will review the abstracts and decide upon the preliminary acceptance.
  2. Each full paper will be reviewed by peer reviewers. If the paper does not fulfill the quality and format requirements, the author will be requested to send a revised paper for further review.

Uploading an abstract

Please prepare an abstract of the planned contribution using the Word template (see homepage) and following the instructions below. The abstract consists of two DIN A4 pages with title, summary, motivation, structure and core results as well as associated images and references (literature, sources, references). The abstract must be expressive in such a way that the technical-scientific content as well as the innovations are clearly recognizable.

Upload the abstract (PDF) to EDAS no later than August 31, 2021.

To use EDAS, you will need a personal account. When using it for the first time, click on "create new account" and create a user account. If you have forgotten your login information, click on "reset your password" and enter your email address.

Tips: How to prepare your paper for the proceedings

Icon writers

The short abstracts and the paper titles (German/English) will be available in Online Libraries. After the conference, this will enable interested people to find easily these contributions.

For titles  use the given guidelines.

A picture tells more than 1000 words. Use the pictures so that these can translate the wished meaning at a glance...

Don't forget to announce the source.

References have to be included at the end of the paper. Please check the typing guidelines. If you wish to refer to other sources from this same event, please contact in advance the event organisers.
