Then you have two options:
- Paper: this is the classical conference paper, with an abstract, a draft paper with a review by a scientific committee member. It is presented during 30 minutes (including questions) in a thematic sessions.<--> A DOI number is associated to this paper which is included in the proceedings.
- Presentation without paper (PWP): this is a simple oral presentation. The review is only formal, not scientific. The presentation is not included in the proceedings. In all cases, an abstract has to be submitted. Details about PwP
