FullPaper submission for all categories (plenary, short paper & poster presentation)

& New deadline for FullPaper submission

The Chair of the Programme Committee has informed me that the submission and thus publication of the full paper is not only necessary for plenary presentations, but also for short and poster presentations.

We apologise to the speakers of the short and poster presentations for this mistake!

For this reason, the submission deadline will be extended to June 2021. The following applies:

  • Please submit by 06.06.2021:
    • Plenary and short paper presenters submit the full paper and the author information.
    • Poster presenters submit the full paper
  • Please send the papers to mailto:contact@kontec-mannheim.de


Speakers' breakfasts go digital

Presenters of a plenary and short paper are traditionally scheduled to have a joint breakfast with the members of the Programme Committee (PA) on the three days of the event. Due to the occasion and the changed admission conditions, we would like to take out the time pressure in the morning. We ask for your understanding. However, there will still be an opportunity to make important organisational arrangements with contacts from the programme committee.

The meeting with the PA will take place online, for which two date options will be offered in August. The invitations for the online meeting will follow separately.

Please take advantage of the opportunity of the online meeting - intensive preparation and cooperation with your moderators will enable the presentations to run smoothly.

PS: We are looking into the possibility of an extra lane ("fast lane") for speakers at the entrance.


Speaker preparation room of the ICD goes digital

Concerns plenary and short presentations.

The file of their presentation between 25 and 27 August 2021 will exceptionally not be submitted directly on site, but in advance via upload on a platform.  However, there is still some time until then. We will inform you in good time about the procedure and the platform for submission.

Until then, priority will be given to the full paper and its submission by 06.06.2021.


Extension of information on the homepage & in the digital programme booklet

The documents (information sheets) and templates have been updated accordingly - to be found under the menu item Speakers.

The (preliminary) programme booklet has grown with the listing of speakers and authors.


We wish you continued success in your preparations and are already looking forward to your contribution!
