Industry Participants. If you have an interesting story to share we welcome your participation. We can guarantee an engaging participation from the floor, where you can discuss and talk freely about what you have been thinking. We just require a title of your presentation, a few lines describing your topic area and a brief biographical note (about a 100 words). If you agree, we will video record your presentation and make it available for a wider audience. If you rather not be recorded, we understand. Requirement: Please submit via our submission system. On acceptance, you will be required to register for the conference.

Academic Participants. We encourage you to submit an abstract, a full paper, a research note, or a case study. There are two modes of submission. You can decide which one works best for you.
