Submitted abstracts will be acknowledged and accepted by one of the PC
members shortly after the submission. At least one author of each
accepted abstract must register and give the talk in the conference.
Abstract will appear on a special page on the website and on local
abstract booklet (and not in the LNCS proceedings).
The submission can be done by email to the address

A special issue of a journal devoted to MCU'15 is programmed. It will
undergo the usual reviewing process. Some informal presentations will be
proposed to contribute.

Submission Deadline: continuously till 10 July 2015.
Notification of authors: in a week after the submission.

* Contributions to be spread via DMANET are submitted to
* Replies to a message carried on DMANET should NOT be
* addressed to DMANET but to the original sender. The
* original sender, however, is invited to prepare an
* update of the replies received and to communicate it
* via DMANET.
