This means that students at early phases of their projects are encouraged to submit. Accepted submission will present their work at a poster session, where they will have the opportunity to interact with participants from the companies. Accepted submissions will be published in the local (online) web-page.

Registrations associated with student project posters have access to the technical program coffee-breaks and lunch in the first day. More information about registration can be found at the EPIA 2019 site.

Industrial Solutions and Case Studies 

Submissions are invited for industrial solutions and case studies. Submit a 2 pages summary of solutions (general-purpose or specific tools) and case studies (success stories, lessons learned and challenges). The same formatting rules for the regular papers apply. Accepted submissions will present their work at a specific session, where the speakers will have the opportunity to discuss their work with academic experts on AI. Accepted submissions will be published in local (online) web-page.
