Online Submission

General Track Sessions

Papers on topics of general relevance to the conference defined in the Conference Scope should be submitted to the conference (via the PROSE online submission and review system) for inclusion in the General Sessions or Tracks.

When submitting a paper, the submitting author must select the Track from a list to be supplied which best relates to the contents of the paper, and submit the paper to that track. Each Track has a Track Chair, who has responsibility for papers in a specific technical area. The Track Chairs are responsible for overseeing the review process for papers within their specialism.
