All submissions must be original works that have not been published previously in any archived conference proceedings, magazine, or journal. Related previous work by the authors must be cited (anonymously if desired and appropriate), and the differences to work described in the submitted manuscript must be clearly explained. Concurrent submissions are strictly forbidden. If it is determined that an identical or substantially similar manuscript is simultaneously under consideration at another publication venue or forum (e.g., conference, journal, edited book) the manuscript will be rejected at an earlystage in the review process and returned without review.

A paper is considered published if it has appeared in a peer-reviewed archived journal or in published meeting proceedings that are commercially orfreely available afterward to non-attendees in the form of archives (including digital). Authors of accepted abstracts are eligible to submit a full paper for inclusion in the WEEF 2019 Proceedings by the date indicated in the notification email.
