 Best paper Awards 

 Authors wishing to apply for an award should follow the standard procedure for full-­‐paper submission for the conference. Please note that extended abstracts and works in progress do not qualify for the awards. Only full papers that will be published  in  the  conference  proceedings  are  eligible  for  one  of  the  best  paper awards. Authors should explicitly indicate upon submission of the Abstract that the paper should be considered for a specific award (Please bear in mind that each paper can only be put forward for one of the Conference Awards even if the topic  conforms  to  both). All  papers  submitted for  an  award  should  meet  the criteria of superior scientific methodological quality and superior writing style.
