Call for Papers

Original papers are solicited for the conference. A full paper (up to 15 pages) should be submitted by February 15, 2017.  An extended abstract (5-7 pages) can be submitted by March 31, 2017. Please, bear in mind that it is more difficult for the Program Committee to decide about your work having just an abstract in hand. All contributions will be reviewed by the international Program Committee. Authors will be notified of acceptance by April 15, 2017. We will require camera-ready full papers by May 25, 2017.

In order to submit a paper or just indicate your interest in the PaCT-2017, please register at the site of the conference and follow the instructions which you will find there. A paper submission system will be activated on the 10th of December, 2016. If you face any difficulties using this site, please contact the Secretary. Only electronic submission of manuscripts is possible.

The first page should include (but not be limited to) the following information: title, authors' full names, affiliation, addresses, telephone number, e-mail addresses. To gain the better understanding of your abstract, we also request it to include the following information: short review of related papers, formulation of the problem, objectives, description of results, main ideas, and list of references.

The organizers expect that the authors of selected papers will present their work at the Conference.

Proposals for workshops and 1/2 and full day tutorials will be considered.
