Paper Sessions

Technical Papers

Technical Papers should present current and original work, incorporating the latest field advancements.

This should encompass innovative solutions improving existing practices, providing valuable insights to others, as well as outcomes from practical work, trials, demonstrations, and pilot studies.

Technical Papers must be between 5 and 10 pages, including the references

Research Papers

Research Papers should actively contribute to advancing the state of the art by introducing novel concepts or addressing existing limitations. 

These papers should demonstrate a high level of scholarship, innovation, and analytical exploration of emerging issues or solutions, surpassing mere re–examination of previously studied subjects.

Research Papers must be between 9 and 12 pages, including the references.
