Scientific Program

A rigorous review process ensured the high quality of scientific contributions and a highly competitive selection, resulting in an acceptance rate of only 25%. We received 92 valid submission and selected 23 of them for inclusion in the proceedings and presentation at the conference. Selections were based on over 350 reviews and more than 300 individual online discussion posts among the reviewers and the program committee.
