All papers duly presented at the Workshop will be included in the SOHOMA’22 post-conference Proceeding published in the Springer series “Studies in Computational Intelligence”, indexed Web of Science, Scopus, ISI Proceedings and DBLP Computer Science. Selected, extended papers will be proposed for publication in a special issue of one journal representative for the workshop’s domain. The selection will be based upon the quality of the papers and the novelty, original contributions and technical soundness of the work. These extended papers will be blind-reviewed, which does not mean their automatic acceptance.
