Conference topics

The open list of topics proposed for submission is organized in form of the tracks presented in the list given below. It is important to note that such classification is valid only on the period of submission, reviewing and selection of papers. The structure of the conference program is defined by the Program committee relying on the selected papers and does not necessarily reflects the submission track structure. All tacks are open for submission of any categories of contribution including regular papers, short papers, posters, demos, tutorials.
