All participants of the symposium are asked to submit a two-page abstract of their contribution. The abstracts will be printed in a small book of abstracts with an ISBN-number, i.e. the abstracts are citable. Therefore, it is necessary to stick strictly to the pdf style file given here: (abstract_template). The contribution can be written using the pdf template Paper_Template or ask for the Word template.

Please observe that the abstracts are definitely not longer (and, ideally, not less) than two pages including everything (text, figures, tables, references etc.)! In order to have the book of abstracts available in printed form at the conference, we need your contribution by July 15th, 2016. Please send the word file (and also a PDF copy) to

The book of abstracts  has been published as an electronic book by the Technical University of Crete..
