Poster Submission Deadline: March 15, 2017

The submitted posters should be a short paper (Maximum 3 pages) according to the provided template. The poster submission deadline is extended to 15 March 2017. The authors of accepted posters would be contacted to provide the standard poster presentation according the given template. All contributions to the Congress should be original research and not previously published. A set of refereed papers will be published as a volume in the series “ Advances in Parallel Computing “ , IOS Press, Amsterdam. The extended version of some selected papers would be accepted to be published in journals.
Acceptance will be notified within the deadline of march 15.
The final version of the poster must be submitted within the deadline of march 25 .

جهت شرکت در بخش مقاله های پوستر لازم است ابتدا یک مقاله کوتاه در حداکثر 3 صفحه در الگوی توصیه شده ارایه شود. در صورت پذیرش مقاله توسط داوران، پذیرفته شدگان موظف خواهند بود تا نسبت به تهیه پوستر مناسب در ابعاد و الگوی مشخص که اعلام خواهد شد شامل اطلاعات مقاله کوتاه پذیرش شده را جهت نمایش در هنگام برگزاری کنگره نیز تهیه نمایند.
توضیح اینکه مقاله های کوتاه پذیرش شده توسط کمیته علمی در قالب کتاب بین المللی با همکاری انتشارات IOS Press هلند به چاپ خواهد رسید. این احتمال نیز پیش بینی شده است که تعدادی از مقاله های کوتاه پذیرش شده حسب نظر داوران به برخی ژورنال های مرتبط جهت ارایه مقاله کامل معرفی گردند. این ژورنال ها فرایند داوری متعارف خود را بر روی مقاله کامل با سرعت بالاتری اعمال خواهند نمود. آخرین مهلت ارسال مقالات پوستر ۲۵ اسفند ماه می باشد.
