Paper Submission

Submission page:

Submission instructions
Prospective authors are encouraged to register their paper by uploading title, authors, and a short abstract (a few hundred words, not an extended abstract) by the 1st of June, 23:59 PST time. Then, authors can update the title, authors, abstract and submit a PDF file with the full paper by the full paper submission deadline. Submitting an abstract is not mandatory. Authors can still submit a full paper by the final deadline without having previously submitted an abstract.

Paper Preparation
All submissions must adhere to the Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format. For a detailed description, please consult the Author Guidelines for the Preparation of Contributions to Springer Computer Science Proceedings.

Further instructions
Each submission should be previously unpublished work that is not currently under submission to another conference. Submissions can be (but do not have to be) anonymized. Full paper submissions are not to exceed 20 pages including references and well-formatted appendices. Full papers should make a strong technical contribution and adequately highlight the novel aspects of the work in relation to related research. Short paper submissions may present work in progress, novel applications and practice/industry experiences. Potential short papers will be evaluated based on their novelty and potential for sparking discussions and future collaborations. Short paper submissions are limited to 12 pages. Submission of both regular and short papers should be done by updating the files on EasyChair.

Camera-ready submission instructions
Camera-ready papers should be submitted via EasyChair. To upload your final paper, click on "Submission #" and select “Update file” from the right-hand menu of the Submission screen. After selecting the file that you wish to upload from your computer, submit your final paper by selecting the “Submit” button.
