The Proceedings of ECMI 2018 will be published by Springer both in printed and e-book versions as part of the ECMI book subseries of Mathematics in Industry. All contributors will have free access to the Proceedings e-book.


Publication of conference papers are restricted to contributions that have actually been presented at the conference either as an oral presentation or as a poster. Corresponding authors are kindly invited to submit a short paper, 5 to 7 pages, in the format predefined by Springer Verlag, not later than 31st August 2018.

All submissions will undergo a standard reviewing process. Papers accepted conditionally subject to minor revisions and actually revised will appear in the Proceedings volume.


Papers must be written in LaTeX using the Springer macro package provided for the ECMI book subseries of Mathematics in Industry. In the folder containing the macros and templates the authors will also find the Copyright form. Completion and submission of the signed copyright form is mandatory for the paper to be published.


Following a tradition of ECMI Conferences and courtesy of Springer Verlag the authors of a selection of fifteen top ranking papers submitted for the Proceedings will be invited to submit the extended version of their contribution for publication, up to 20 journal pages, in a special issue of Journal of Mathematics in Industry, a Springer Open Access journal, devoted to ECMI 2018. Upon peer review, accepted papers will be published free of charge. Notice that authors interested in this competitive option must indicate it according to instructions given later.
