Contributions can be submitted in German or in English. FMT welcomes submissions in three different submission categories:

  • Full paper: Full papers should report substantial, completed, and previously unpublished research. The maximum length is 8 pages excluding references in the FMT Conference Paper format. Accepted full papers will be presented as a talk of 20 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion.
  • Short paper: Short papers are appropriate for reporting smaller experiments, surveys, and work in progress. The maximum length is 4 pages excluding references in the FMT conference paper format. Accepted short papers will be presented as a talk of 10 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion.
  • Graduate Consortium: The FMT 2016 Graduate Consortium session is intended to provide an opportunity for graduate students to explore, discuss and develop their research topic in an interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of a panel of distinguished researchers. We invite students to apply for this unique opportunity to share their work with colleagues and researchers in the field. Candidates for the Graduate Consortium should have a clear topic and research approach. Their work should be still in progress and allow for making changes, so that applicants can benefit from the consortium’s feedback. Accepted proposals will be presented in a one-minute elevator statement to the audience and then discussed in detail in smaller individual discussion groups.
