The submission process

Following a review of abstracts, authors will be invited to submit a full paper which will also be reviewed. Successful authors will be invited to attend and present their work at DPSP 2016 Conference.

All abstracts submitted to DPSP 2016 are now under review with all authors to be notified by mid-October. The system will then be open for full paper submission for which additional information will follow.
