A draft version of the paper has to be submitted before February 17, 2017. This is mandatory to include your paper in the review process. If your paper has not been registered in the system before February 17, then it will be rejected immediately. Those who submit a draft version will have a chance to update it during a one-week period. The full submission must then be uploaded by February 24, 2017.

Upon acceptance, a final manuscript should be re-submitted before the deadline for camera-ready papers. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings, which will be available online as an electronic publication. Please note that at least one of the authors of each paper must register in order for the paper to be presented and included in the proceedings. In accordance with the SMC tradition, we will award prizes for the best papers. The prize will permit the author(s) to publish an extended version of the paper in a scientific journal.
