Submission process

Final acceptance of any contribution requires registration of the author to attend the conference. The Scientific Expert Committee determines whether the author of an accepted short proceeding is ultimately invited for a paper or poster presentation. Short proceedings will be collected in a conference book. Upon agreement with the corresponding author, all provided information including Abstracts, Slides, Posters and Short Manuscripts will be made accessible to the public on the WRF website after the conference.
