Information for authors


Abstract Format and Abstract Submission

Abstracts should be 1 page long and must include one illustrative figure outlining the main results. Moreover, abstracts are expected to address the three major review criteria mentioned below. A comparison to reference works will be appreciated. An exemplary abstract can be found here.

A pdf-version of the abstract should be submitted online here until 19, February 2016. Authors are requested to assign their contribution to at least three Workshop topics.

Review Process

The quality of the abstracts will be assessed using averaged ratings for 3 equally important categories, i.e. (1) novelty, (2) applicability & impact and (3) predictive accuracy & predictive improvements over the state-of-the-art. The abstract will be reviewed by at least three experts. Notification of acceptance for publication will be given until 14, March 2016 via email.


After notification of accepted abstract, authors should prepare their full 8-page paper according to the template. It is important NOT to put any page number in the paper. It is also recommended not to spend too much space on standard SPH equations on the paper, since readers are assumed to already know basics of SPH. Respective templates can be downloaded for Word or LaTeX documents.

At least one author is expected to register until 6, May 2016 for the workshop and present the paper. Papers with no registered authors will not be published (cf. Registration and Payment section).

Papers should be submitted until 29, April 2016 in pdf format.

Libersky Student Prize

A prize will be devoted to the best student paper and its presentation. Student authors, who would like to sign up for the student prize should indicate it with the submission of the paper. Note that to be eligible for the student prize, the student must be the first author on the paper, and also give the presentation.
