Those who are interested in publishing their conference contributions academically will have the opportunity to submit full papers to one or more special issues of high quality cybernetics-related journal(s) after the event. This will be based in a two-step reviewing process: In the first instance, 2-page abstracts will be reviewed before the conference. Accepted poster or seminar presentations are expected to develop through participation in the conference – in particular through “cybernetic fairs” at the beginning and at the end of the event. After the conference, full papers submitted on the basis of seminar and poster presentations undergo a second peer review process in order to be accepted for journal publication.
