Instructions for authors

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any journal or any other conference or workshop with formally published proceedings. Authors may also not submit the work to any other journal or conference/workshop with published proceedings until the date of notification. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or workshop that has proceedings. Information about submissions may be shared with program chairs of other conferences for the purpose of detecting duplication.

Submissions must be processed in LaTeX2e and must use the Springer LNCS format with default margins and font. Submissions must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. Each submission must begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of key words, followed by a main body, appendices (if any), and references. The main body should begin with an introduction that summarizes the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. The length of the paper, including appendices (if any) and excluding references should not exceed 20 pages when formatted using the LNCS style. If the authors include appendices, they should be placed after the main body and before the references. Submissions not meeting these requirements risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Optionally, additional supporting material can be appended to the submission. The additional supporting material should be placed after the references, it should be well-marked, and it has no prescribed form or page limit. Alternatively, the supporting material can be submitted as a separate file. Authors are encouraged to use this space to include proofs, source code, and other information allowing verification of results; unverifiable papers risk rejection. However, committee members will read the additional supporting material at their discretion, so the submission should be intelligible and self-contained without it.

The proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The final versions of the accepted papers will have a page limit of 20 pages (including appendices (if any) and excluding references). Thus the submitted paper should represent what the authors expect to finally publish.

All accepted papers must conform to the Springer publishing requirements, and authors will be required to sign the Springer's LNCS Copyright form when submitting the proceedings version of their paper. By submitting a paper, the authors agree that if the paper is accepted, one of the authors will present the paper at the conference.

Papers must be submitted electronically in pdf format. Details of the submission procedure will be provided soon.
