Research in progress papers

The Bled Forum invites submissions as short papers with possibly associated posters on topics related to the conference’s main theme and special interest themes. Forum papers can present research-in-progress and should be original and innovative, and not longer than 2.500 words. All submissions will be evaluated in a similar manner as full papers. Through short presentations possibly enhanced with posters delegates will be able to show their accepted (preliminary) research and receive feedback in an interactive way. Posters will be displayed during the conference.  Accepted forum papers will appear in a special section of the conference proceedings.
