Special Issue Submissions

As part of the NEO Workshop series, the NEO offers a special issue in the journal Mathematical and Computational Applications (MCA) since 2018. Extended and other works that are related to NEOs scope are welcome to the SI, and the article processing fee (APC) will be waived for such submissions.

Note that on top, the registration fees for authors of paper published in the SI will be dropped if the paper is submitted before October 01, 2020.

The special issue is already open for submission:


Registration Fee

The fee for the NEO 2020 online event is as follows:

- before Oct 01, 2020: 1,000 MXN
- Oct 01 and later: 1,500 MXN

If a "factura" is needed, 16 percent will be added to the amount for taxes.


Important Dates

August 20: deadline for abstract submissions.
August 30: notification of acceptance.

October 01: deadline for submissions for the special issue that qualifies for a reduction of the registration fee (the special issue is already open for submissions, and once papers are accepted they will immediately be published online).
