The PATTWORLD 2016 workshop accepts regular research papers and vision papers. All accepted papers will be published in the post-workshop proceedings. Submissions will be reviewed by at least by two reviewers to assure general fitness regarding content, readability, and scope. Papers may be accepted or rejected depending on innovation, technical soundness, and presentation clarity.

Submission takes place via Easychair. The submission page can be accessed here.

For every accepted paper at least one author needs to register for ESOCC 2016. There is a specific registration fee for people who want to attend the conference only for the workshop day (please visit the ESOCC Website).

The workshop post-proceedings will be published as part of the Springer's Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series. All participants will be provided with digital onsite proceedings.
