Submission Guidelines
Authors should submit an electronic copy of the paper in PDF, formatted in the EasyChair LaTeX Style (, via the Easychair submission website for VPT 2016 :

Papers must describe original work that has not been published, or currently submitted, to a journal, conference, or workshop with refereed proceedings. Also papers that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings may be submitted.

Each submission must include on its first page the paper title; authors and their affiliations; contact author's email; abstract; and three to four keywords that will be used to assist the PC in selecting appropriate reviewers for the paper. Page numbers should appear on the manuscript to help the reviewers in writing their report.

Submissions should not exceed 15 pages including references but excluding well-marked appendices not intended for publication. Reviewers are not required to read the appendices, and thus papers should be intelligible without them.

Original accepted papers will be published in a volume of the EasyChair Proceedings (EPiC) series.

If the workshop will attract sufficiently many high quality papers, a special issue of a journal on the topic of the workshop will be considered. The special issue will be open to high quality papers accepted for presentation in previous editions of the workshop.
