    The paper selection process was accomplished in 3 stages. A first stage when our international committee of scientific reviewers assessed the abstracts (peer-to-peer), the result being that out of a total number of 456 abstracts submitted, only 382 have been accepted. The second stage concerned the evaluation of full papers (double-blind-peer-review) and which resulted in only 325 papers being accepted for publication, out of a total number of 368 papers that we received. In the third and last stage, authors have been notified of the results and of the revisions they had to make (as a rule, papers are either accepted as they are, accepted with minor revisions, accepted with major revisions, or rejected). The paper selection process was very strict process (papers have been rejected either because of the poor quality in scientific content, or because the issues addressed did not fit into the topic of the conference). In order to be published, papers must deal with issues that fall under the topic of the conference and must meet the international editorial and publishing standards (papers written in English, abstracts, keywords, complete and up-to-date references and bibliography).
