Extended abstracts, full-papers, patent and start-ups will be eligible for presentation in the scope of SEG-2018. The call for abstracts can be found here. Decisions on oral presentations will be made depending on the abstracts submitted. Once the abstract is accepted for oral presentation, either an extended abstract or a full-paper can be submitted. Note that one of these is mandatory for oral presentation, an abstract submission alone will not suffice. For the patent and start-up presentations, a one-page description is sufficient to be eligible for the presentations. Please see the instructions below for submission details.
