We encourage two types of submissions: short papers and extended abstracts.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will have the opportunity to be presented as posters, with a selection of papers also being chosen for spotlight talks. 

To acknowledge and celebrate outstanding research, we are pleased to announce that cash prizes will be awarded to the best submissions. Contributed papers will be made available on the workshop's website. It is important to note that this publication on the website does not constitute an archival publication, and no formal workshop proceedings will be published. Consequently, contributors are free to pursue the publication of their work in archival journals or conferences.
