Regular papers should not exceed 8 pages, including tables, graphs and references. Alternatively, authors could produce a short paper; in this case manuscript should not exceed 2 pages, with the same format as for the preparation of regular papers. Submission of manuscripts is a prerequisite for oral or poster presentation.
