Paper Selection and Proceedings

Contributions to WPTE 2021

For the paper submission deadline an extended abstract of at most 10 pages is required to be submitted. The extended abstract may present original work or also work in progress. Based on the submissions the program committee will select the presentations for the workshop. All selected contributions will be included in the informal proceedings distributed to the workshop participants. One author of each accepted extended abstract is expected to present it at the workshop. Submissions must be prepared in LaTeX using the EPTCS macro package. All submissions will be electronic via https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wpte2021.

Formal Proceedings

WPTE post-proceedings of selected papers will be published in a JLAMP special issue. For this, full papers must be submitted until the post-proceedings deadline. The authors of selected contributions will have the opportunity (but no obligation) to submit a full paper for the formal post-proceedings. These must represent original work and should not be submitted to another conference at the same time. The submission deadline for these post-proceedings will be after the workshop in September 2021. There will be a second round of reviewing for selecting papers to be published in the formal proceedings.
