What is Late News?
The purpose of this ultimate call, with deadline on Thursday, March 15, 2016, is to enable the “latest” outstanding papers to make it to the Workshop. This “Late News” submission process is not designed to be an overflow for the abstracts that did not make the deadline of January 12, 2016. On the contrary, the goal is to give the opportunity to get exciting and outstanding results the chance of being presented at Hilton Head 2016 Workshop. It deals with absolutely remarkable and novel achievements that should not be missed, both for the author and the attendees of the conference.
The format of these “Late News” abstracts should follow the guidelines for Contributed Abstracts and should consist of 2 pages, figures included. Please use the separate “Late News Abstract” template, similar to the “manuscript” template when submitting your Late News abstract.
The abstracts will be reviewed and authors will be notified of their acceptance by Thursday, March 29, 2016. The criteria for acceptance are very rigid: only top-level results and major breakthrough of a wide interest will be granted this exceptional status. Although accepted Late News abstracts have been prepared in their final form, as a courtesy, we are giving 5 days to modify these Late News submissions before being sent to the printer. If no modifications are made, the Late News papers will be submitted to the printer as received.
