Submissions, Publication and Presentations

The NEO 2020 will accept two modalities for submissions.

Abstract Submissions

Extended abstracts can be submitted by Easy Chair Neo 2020, these will be reviewed by the organizing committee and accepted abstracts will be published in the book of abstracts, and authors are invited to make a 20 minute presentation at this years event. The latest submission date is June 15, 2020, but authors are encouraged to do so earlier.

Special Issue Submissions

As part of the NEO Workshop series, the NEO offers a special issue in the journal Mathematical and Computational Applications (MCA) since 2018. Authors of papers submitted to the SI (either the 2019 or 2020 editions) will be invited to make a 30 minute presentation of their work at NEO 2020. Final paper acceptance is not mandatory (but idesirable), only that the submission meets the scope of the NEO, and that the paper meets minimum quality and editorial standards, if these conditions are not met the paper will rejected outright by the editors and participation at the NEO under this modality is not possible. This modality has additional benefits to the authors, including a reduced registration fee and participation for the inaugural NEO 2020 Best Paper Award.
