Verona, Italy, 19-21 September, 2018 (close to Padua and Venice)


Submission of Extended Abstracts and Camera-ready Papers: within 15th March, 2018

Instructions for preparation of              Extended Abstract         Paper

PLEASE submit to andrea.carpinteri@unipr.it your PDF Extended Abstract(s) to be inserted in the Abstract Booklet (which will be delivered to the CP 2018 Participants at the beginning of the Conference). In general, the Abstracts submitted some months ago are not suitable as Extended Abstracts. As a matter of fact, the objective of an initial Abstract is to persuade the organisers to accept the paper, whereas the objective of an Extended Abstract is to interest the reader to either attend the lecture or to read the full version of the paper.

PLEASE submit to andrea.carpinteri@unipr.it your Paper(s) (both in PDF and in Word) to be published in the Conference Proceedings.
