# Author information

## Submission of the final version

Two types of manuscripts should be prepared according to the accepted form:

• Regular Papers
The WFCS2021 expects  up to 8 double-column pages (4 double-column pages for papers accepted to TII Special Section) reporting on the novel and significant contributions to the field of industrial communication systems.
Authors of accepted papers are encouraged to submit a pdf version of their papers through the WFCS2021 submission system. The submitted material (in English language) must be unpublished and not under review elsewhere. Submissions MUST include e-mail addresses and fax/phone numbers of the corresponding author.
Each accepted paper is presented by one of the authors in a short prerecorded presentation of 15 minutes. After the presentation, 5 minutes will be reserved for live questions.

• Work-in-Progress (WIP)
These sessions are intended for the presentation of recent ideas and ongoing works up to 4 double-column pages, describing research that has not yet produced the results required for a regular paper, but that due to its novelty and potential impact deserves to be shared with the community at an early stage. WIP submissions should be prepared according to the same guidelines as regular papers and should be submitted through their own WIP electronic submission system.
Accepted WIP papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

Each accepted WiP paper is presented by one of the authors in a short prerecorded presentation of 5 minutes. After the presentation, 5 minutes will be reserved for live questions.
