Papers that meet the requirements of submission, review and acceptance will be published in the conference Proceedings.
All proposals should include:

Paper Presentation proposals
A proposal for a paper presentation should include a brief description of new research findings or research in progress of the specific topic or issue addressed. Each presentation will have a duration of 20 minutes, followed by Q and A.
Panel proposals (3 – 4 presenters)
The Conference invites panel proposals which focus on a specific theme of the conference and which are organized so that discussions with the audience are encouraged. Panels typically include 3 or 4 panelists and a moderator. Proposals should include the panel’s objectives and topics and should explain the proposed composition of the panel and its diversity, including the perspectives and contributions that each participant will bring to the topic (without listing presenters’ names). The proposal is submitted by the moderator, who is responsible for all aspects of the submission. Each panel will have a duration of one hour.
