Paper Submission

To submit a paper, register for the EasyChair submission system and upload a PDF of your paper.

Abstract guidelines

As a first step please submit a title, an abstract and keywords via the online submission system. The abstract should not be longer than 250 words.

Full paper guidelines

The submission of the full paper should again be done using the online system, with the same account used for the submission of the abstract. Articles should be prepared according to the LNCS recommendations and templates and they should be at most twelve pages long. All papers must be submitted in electronic format as PDF files before the submission deadline. LNCS information for authors can be found here.

Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Before publication, the authors will be requested to fill and sign Springer's form for the consent to publish and the copyright transfer.

Keep in mind that papers that from the guidelines will be returned to the authors. The articles will be allowed to go through the reviewing process only if they satisfy the specified requirements.

Supplementary material

Please remember that articles should be self-contained. Notice that authors can also deliver supplementary material (additional results, technical report with detailed mathematical derivations, source code...) regarding their submitted papers. If any supplementary material is referenced in the camera ready version of the paper, it is the responsibility of the authors to make it publicly and permanently available.
