MOD 2016 Types of Submissions
When submitting a paper to MOD 2016, authors are required to select 
one of the following four types of papers:
+ Long paper: original novel and unpublished work (max. 12 pages in Springer LNCS format);
+ Short paper: an extended abstract of novel work (max. 4 pages);
+ Work for oral presentation only (no page restriction; any format). 
For example, work already published elsewhere, which is relevant and which may solicit fruitful discussion at the workshop;
+ Work for poster presentation only. The poster format for the 
presentation is A0 (118.9 cm high and 84.1 cm wide, respectively 46.8 x 33.1 inch).

For research work which is relevant and which may solicit fruitful discussion at the workshop.

MOD 2016 Post-Proceedings
All accepted long papers will be published in a volume of the series 
'Lecture Notes in Computer Science' from Springer after the Workshop. 
Instructions for preparing and submitting the final versions 
(camera-ready papers) of all accepted papers will be available later on.
All the other papers (short papers, abstract of the oral 
presentations, poster presentations) will be published on the MOD 2016 web site.

Journal Special Issue on Computational Optimization and Applications Journal
The top 8-10 accepted articles will have the opportunity to publish a revised and expanded version of their conference paper in the Computational Optimization and Applications Journal – Springer.
