Publication

Proceedings

All registered papers will be published by EAI Core Series and made available through European Union Digital Library (EUDL).

VALUETOOLS proceedings are indexed in leading indexing services, including Ei Compendex, ISI Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL).

Special Issue

Authors of a selection of best papers will be given the opportunity to submit an extended version of their work for publication in a special issue of the journal Performance Evaluation.

Community Review

Community Review is a service offered to Program Committees and submitting Authors of all EAI conferences designed to improve the speed and the quality of the review process.

Abstracts of all authors who opt in to Community Review during submission will be published and available for Bidding here.
