Information about the Call for Papers

We would like to offer our national and international participants an interesting conference program and as such we asked you to submit your contribution until December 15th, 2019 (only extension already considered).

The abstract of the proposed contribution and later the accepted paper or poster itself can be submitted and presented either in English or German.


The following topics were selected from the scientific committee as a "thematic framework" in advance:
