  • Industrial applications


We solicit full papers (6-8 pages) of original, unpublished work, as well as application spotlight papers (2-4 pages) focusing on the solution of practical problems in industry and other domains. All submitted papers will undergo a double blind peer review process by the programme committee.

Accepted papers will be published online with “Verlag der TU Graz” in a fully open-access electronic volume (with ISBN, and DOIs for individual papers), compare for links to last year’s proceedings.

The submission deadline is March 07, 2018 March 21, 2018.

An OCG sponsored Best Paper Award will be awarded to the best work selected among the accepted full papers.

Use the following LaTeX master template for your submission: Template OAGM2018

Featured Presentations

In addition to full papers and application spotlight papers, this year we will also solicit featured presentations (sometimes also called “nectar presentations”) at OAGM 2018. The intention for this category is to present work that was recently published/accepted in Scopus or Web of Science listed journals or high impact conferences. Again, papers from all general topics will be eligible for this category.

To submit, we require a single page extended abstract that is prepared with the same LaTeX template (see above) used for the other two paper categories, however, we ask for single blind submissions that clearly cite the original work, thus the LaTeX switch “oagmfinalcopy” needs to be changed to true in the template.  The extended abstract should summarize and highlight the original contribution. Furthermore, the extended abstract will also be published in the online proceedings with “Verlag der TU Graz”.

Submitted abstracts will be ranked by the program chairs according to their relevance to OAGM 2018 and to the quality level of the journal/conference of the original publication.

The submission deadline for the featured presentations category is April 13, 2018.
