Every paper shall contain a reasonable part of novel information and results. Only papers not published before are acceptable for the conference. It is presumed, that the content is based on the authors' own participation at the work described.

Non-commerciality

Any kind of direct advertisement is not allowed in the text. This includes using logos except for the case when normally placed on products in the photos, using praiseful adjectives with companies or products instead of reasoning by facts and data. Any recommendation of preference of a company or product exceeding the needs of description of the work results. Comparisons, indicating other company names and product/service parameters are not recommended. Brand names of products should be used in reasonable extent as required by the logic of the text, not repeated excessively. Company names shall not be part of the paper title. It is part of the author’s address, so it is presumed, that the work published is result of the company activity, if not otherwise highlighted. Company names can be used for referencing results, where it would not be obvious.

Acceptable

For presentation slides, institution/company logos are acceptable on the front page, in templates of slides and in possible acknowledgments. They are acceptable on photographs, where logos are part of the product.
