Papers are to be submitted electronically through Easychair at the following link https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=opodis2017. Submissions must be in English in pdf format and they must be prepared using the LaTeX style templates for LIPIcs and choosing the A4 paper option. A submission must not exceed 16 pages, including the cover page, figures, tables and references. The cover page should include the title of the paper, the authors’ names, affiliations and e-mails, an abstract, information about the contact author, and a list of keywords.
Additional details may be included in a clearly marked appendix or as supplementary material which will be read at the discretion of the reviewers. Submissions are expected to be intelligible and complete without such additional details.
A submission must report on original research that has not previously appeared in a journal or conference with published proceedings. It should not be concurrently submitted to such a journal or conference. Any overlap with a published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated. The Program Chairs reserve the right to reject submissions that are out of scope, or of clearly inferior quality, or that violate the submission guidelines. Each of the remaining papers will undergo a thorough reviewing process.
