There are several publishing opportunities for participants (linking the papers to existing special issues and fast review tracks in journals). Moreover, the five papers which will be shortlisted (nominations) for the two best paper awards (Most inspirational paperBest contribution to theory and practice paper) will be invited to submit to a journal special issue (ABS 2/3 journal) we are currently working on.
