All papers accepted and duly presented at the Workshop will be included in the SOHOMA’20 post conference Proceedings, ISI and DBLP Computer Science database indexed, published in the Springer series “Studies in Computational Intelligence”. Selected, extended papers will be proposed for publication in a special issue of one journal representative for the workshop’s domain (Journal of Intelligent Manufacturing, International Journal of Production Research, Computers in Industry, International Journal of CIM). The selection will be based upon the quality of the papers edited in the Springer proceedings, the quality of the oral presentations and the novelty, original contributions and technical soundness of the work. These extended papers will be blind-reviewed, which does not mean their automatic acceptance.

When preparing your camera ready paper please also complete and send by e-mail at the Springer Consent to Publish: Model Contract Book Contributor Consent to Publish (Springer).
