As a novelty, this year we will also publish poster papers (up to 4 pages) in the conference proceedings. This makes CW’2014 an excellent forum for Ph.D./Master/Graduate students to show their most recent activity. This is also a good opportunity for research groups to disseminate their work-in-progress. Poster papers will also have the opportunity to make a brief oral presentation (fast-foward format) in addition to the classical poster session.

CPS All accepted submissions will be included in the conference proceedings to be published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and submitted to the IEEE Xplore and Computer Society digital library, and for indexing through INSPEC, EI (Compendex), Thomson ISI, and other indexing services.


Authors of all accepted full papers and selected short papers will be invited to submit a revised extended version to the special issues of the following international journals:

The Visual Computer (Springer)  SCI-indexed journal
