NOTICE:


>> According to the schedule of preparations for the Conference, paper reviews were supposed to be submitted by 31st May. Nevertheless, the Program Committee accepted reviews up to four to five days later. In this way, more than 85% of the corresponding authors submitted their reviews within the deadline. Unfortunately, a few of those who did not submit are now asking for an extension. Many have valid reasons, and we sympathize with them. However, we had to find other reviewers to ensure that papers were fairly treated, and have to stick to the deadline of 14 June to notify successful authors. For this reason, no further correspondence will be entered into regarding this matter, even though we sympathize with those negatively affected.
