Journal fast track

Outstanding submissions to the technical or thematic tracks will be offered the opportunity to be published exclusively through a fast-track process in the Constraints journal: following a second round of minor review they will be accepted directly in the journal by the time of the conference. Authors of these papers can opt to extend their paper from 15 to 20 pages plus references. These papers will be acknowledged through a one-page abstract in the conference proceedings and will be presented during the conference on the same ground as any other accepted submission.
