- the Best Paper Award will be chosen among the long papers submitted at the conference and the papers accepted in the journal track. The prize fund of €1,000 is kindly sponsored by Springer;
- Best Student Paper Awards, namely:
- Best Student Paper (long papers) (for submissions to the journal track or long paper/conference track)
