Working Groups

Working Groups are forums for presenting papers that are not associated with any of the Special Workshops. To ensure adequate discussion time, papers should be submitted in advance, to be put on the Congress website, so that other participants can read them before the meeting. This will permit individual presenters to summarise their papers at the session, and get considered discussion from their audience.

Abstracts and papers will be accepted on the basis of peer review of the Host Committee.

The acceptance of abstracts will be communicated to the author within 15 days after submission.

Abstracts accepted for ivr2017 Istanbul will be accepted in Lisbon if submitted by May 15, 2017.

Each author should not submit more than 2 abstracts (including abstracts for special workshops).
