Call for Papers

Extended abstracts and short papers

We invite authors to submit contributions to the I-RIM 2022 Conference in the shape of an extended abstract of 2 pages (which could be extended up to a short 4-pages paper). All abstracts and presentations are in English. The conference welcomes novel basic research results, but also contributions based on results already published by the authors in the scientific forum, which are reworked here to illustrate their relevance to applications in a language that is accessible to a larger public for dissemination to developers and practitioners.

The event in Milan, 33.BI-MU fieramilano Rho, will focus on illustrating applied research results, especially addressing and considering  results produced by collaborations between industries and research centers. These contributions are expected to be submitted jointly by at least a representative of an industrial company and a member of the university and/or research center.

Submitted contributions can be accompanied by an optional video, which is indeed encouraged. All submitted articles will undergo a peer-review process. Accepted articles will be collected in the conference proceedings in digital format together with the videos.

All the material will be made publicly available open access (Open Access Gold), and will be both digitally indexed (DOI) and citable.
