Authors of accepted abstracts had been invited to submit a short paper (6 pages) until July 15 Aug 8, 2016, for possible publication in the printed proceedings volume. The initial submission for the refereed proceedings volume was made via the the EasyChair system. Naturally an abstract must have been accepted already and the author must also present the paper at the conference to be considered for the refereed post-conference proceeding volume.

The submissions have been evaluated by the stream chairs for their suitability for publication. Final decisions have been made by the editors of the volume. As a result of the referee reports about two-thirds of the submissions are included in the proceedings volume. The coresponding authors have been notified in October 2016.

We exclusively accepted papers with 6 pages maximum (including references) which have been prepared according to the Springer style files (preferably LaTeX). The authors should match the authors of the corresponding accepted abstract (the author order may change). Authors should use the LaTeX style file provided by Springer and adhere to the formatting guidelines in the documentation. At first, papers had to be be submitted as a pdf file. Only for accepted papers we eventually asked for the source files.

The submission of your short paper (as a single pdf file) is made via the EasyChair system.
You need to register/login at EasyChair before being able to upload your paper. Please select New Submission (in the menu bar) and fill out and submit the form. You must select the stream you are submitting to as a topic (if unsure, please check in the abstract submission page (at EURO-online) which stream you are listed in).
