Call for Papers

MAPSP submissions undergo a selection process based on a light refereeing by the Program Committee. MAPSP does not publish proceedings other than a conference booklet (no ISSN). Hence, presenting your contribution at MAPSP will not prevent you from submitting it to journals or to other conferences. Similarly, it is acceptable to submit a contribution that was presented at an earlier conference. To make the refereeing process easier, you are requested to indicate whether, and if so, where your work has been previously published.

Abstracts of 2-3 pages must be submitted using EasyChair
Submission system: access EasyChair with this link.
