Potential contributors may also contact the guest editors to discuss suitability of topics and papers.


Submission to this special issue is completely open. We expect original articles (typically 15-30 pages) that present high-quality contributions that have not been previously published in an archival venue and that must not be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. Submissions must comply with MCS' author guidelines, be written in English, and be formatted using LaTeX. All submitted papers will be refereed according to the usual MCS refereeing process.

Submission to this special issue is hereby encouraged via the EasyChair submission system. To aid planning and organization, an early e-mail of intent to submit a paper (including author information, and a tentative title and abstract) would be appreciated.
