Notice – 19.03.18

Initial abstract submission is now closed; however, if you are still interested in making a submission please contact us at seg2018@epfl.ch

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.

You may submit your abstract to a specific mini-symposium; however, you may also make a general abstract submission which does not belong to any mini-symposium. In the case of a general submission, depending on the content, your contribution will be placed in the relevant technical session.


  • Abstract submissions should include title, author(s), author(s) affiliation, author(s) email, abstract text (maximum 250 words), and relevant mini-symposium (if applicable).
  • Abstracts must be in English and should explain the content as well as summarise results and major conclusions.
  • Abstracts will be reviewed with regard to scientific quality and suitability for the symposium.
  • Please indicate whether you intend for your ultimate submission to be an extended abstract or a full paper.
  • Please indicate whether you are submitting your abstract for a specific mini-symposium or as a general submission (a full list of mini-symposiums can be found here).

Extended abstracts and full-papers:

Extended Abstracts: Extended abstracts are eligible for oral presentation and they will be included in the digital conference proceedings available for download. Extended abstracts should be maximum 2-pages long.

Full-Papers: Full-paper submissions will be published in the book of the proceedings by Springer and indexed in Scopus and SpringerLink. Papers should be maximum 8-pages long.
