Short papers for ECARTS 2017 must be written in English, and not exceed two A4 pages in length in single column, 10pt format, including relevant references. The main purpose of the paper for new open problem submissions should be to provide a clear description of the problem. Papers may be submitted describing well-known but as yet unsolved problems. However, all papers should contain some element of original work that has not been published before; for example, a new problem, a new way of looking at an existing problem, new intuition or ideas on how a problem might be solved, possible frameworks for solutions, or overviews of special cases that may be useful in solving a problem.
Paper submissions should be made electronically, in PDF format, via
Authors of accepted papers are expected to give a brief presentation of their open problem, and be prepared to work on the problem with other participants during the collaboration sessions. Instructions for preparing final copy and presentations will be given when the paper is accepted. ECARTS 2017 will publish proceedings as a seminar booklet.
By submitting the paper, the authors agree and confirm that: neither this paper nor a version close to it is under submission or will be submitted elsewhere before notification by ECARTS 2017, and if accepted, at least one author will register for the ECARTS 2017 seminar by the special registration deadline set in the notification of acceptance, and present the open problem at the seminar in person. Please note that papers that do not describe energy consumption problems will not be accepted. Submissions will be refereed for quality and relevance. Submissions exceeding the page limit may be rejected without review. Some of the selected papers from the workshop will be considered for publication in and revised form in a special issue and published online at CEUR-WS.org indexed by DBLP.
