We welcome online submissions of extended abstracts (not full technical papers) that include a brief overview, a description of work, impact of work, and main conclusions. Accepted abstracts for oral presentations will be published in the conference's book of abstracts. The programme committee will group related oral presentations into sessions, wherever possible. Some submitted oral presentations may following review by the programme committee be assigned to a poster session.

Posters will be on display all week during the event and the selected demonstrations will have allocated time on the booths provided.

The exhibition area will be open for organisations active within the EGI community to present their work. Requests for co-located workshops will need to identify how the workshop organisers will ensure a high-quality programme that is relevant to the EGI community. An exhibitors guide will be available after Christmas.
