How to Submit an Article to the Issue.

The length of an article is not limited. Deadline for paper submission is February 15, 2011.

Publication will be done only on the results of the peer review according to refereeing policy of SIGMA.

If you have your paper ready earlier than the deadline, we encourage you to send it now. We will start the reviewing process and publish the paper as soon as the positive publication decision is made.
