This yr, this system consisted of thirteen oral periods, one poster consultation, ten unique tracks, and 6 keynote shows. The reaction to the decision for - pers used to be very powerful. We obtained greater than two times the papers obtained final 12 months. Speci?cally, we acquired over 280 submissions for the most symposium from which we approved sixty five papers for oral presentation (23% recognition) and fifty six papers for poster presentation (20% acceptance). distinctive music papers have been solicited individually during the Organizing and software Committees of every music. a complete of fifty seven papers have been permitted for presentation within the specific tracks. All papers have been reviewed with an emphasis on power to give a contribution to the state-of-the-art within the ?eld. choice standards incorporated accuracy and originality of rules, readability and signi?cance of effects, and presentation caliber. The overview approach was once fairly rigorous, regarding to 3 self reliant blind reports via numerous days of debate. in the course of the dialogue interval we attempted to right anomalies and blunders that would have existed within the preliminary reviews.
