We have received more than 100 manuscripts. All of them (except the works of the invited speakers) were reviewed.

Unfortunately, due to the limitations of the number of typeset pages kindly provided us by the editors of the Journal as sponsors support, it was necessary to select only the limited number of the papers recommended for publishing.

The following criteria were applied for selection:

  • The measure of correspondence to the subject area of the conference;
  • The novelty of the results;
  • The quality of preparation of the materials including representation, illustrations, and the degree of the correspondence to the requirements of the journal, ets.

The decisions were taken after the discussion among all Guest Editors and the Organizing Committee have no opportunity to discuss or modify them.

The final decision on the acceptance the manuscripts for publishing will be taken by the Editorial Board of the Journal at the end of January 2012. The Proceedings will be available online no later then July 31, 2012 and will be included in the print issue at the end of 2012.
