Two-Phases Review Process

All contributions need to be submitted on-line and uploaded via our conference management system ( Submissions must follow the formatting instructions of the template files provided in Guidelines for authors.

Submitted abstracts are assessed by external reviewers and/or members of the Scientific Committee. If accepted, authors are required to complete the submission with Full Paper (limited to 8 pages), Short Paper (limited to 4 pages) or Poster Abstract (limited to 2 pages).

Authors of accepted abstracts are required to submit Full Paper, Short Paper or Poster Abstract by 30 April 2016. Full and Short Papers as well as Paper Abstracts are peer-reviewed. Final acceptance is due by 15 June 2015.

Preliminary acceptance of the abstracts does not imply final acceptance of the papers. All papers will be peer-reviewed by an international scientific committee. The scientific committee reserves the right to determine whether a submitted paper is accepted or rejected.

For organizational reasons, only a limited number of finally accepted papers can be displayed as oral presentation. However, all accepted papers (either long or short) excluded from oral presentation will be included in the conference proceedings as well, and invited for poster presentation.

Authors of finally accepted papers are required to address the reviewers’ comments in the final version of the paper (camera-ready), to be submitted by 8 July 2016.

Authors of abstracts accepted for Poster presentation are also required to upload a revised and updated (camera-ready) Poster Abstract by 8 July 2016, to be included in the conference proceedings.

Papers and Poster Abstracts not meeting the formatting criteria will not be included in the conference proceedings.

At least one author of each accepted paper/poster must attend the conference and present their work in an oral or poster presentation.

A completed registration and payment is mandatory for final acceptance of the contribution and for inclusion in the conference program.


Accepted papers and poster abstracts will be published in the Proceedings of the DSC 2016 Europe – Driving Simulation Conference & Exhibition.

NEW : The best papers will be published in Special Issue in Driving Simulation, Transportation Research Part F, Elsevier.
