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 venue with published proceedings until the date of acceptance 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 anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. Each submission must begin with a title, a short abstract, a list of key words, and an introduction that summarizes the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. The length of the main body of the paper (excluding references and appendices) should not exceed 20 pages when formatted using the LNCS style. Submissions not meeting these requirements risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

A submission may include additional supporting information beyond the 20-page LNCS limit in the form of well marked appendices. 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 beyond 20 pages at their discretion, so the submission should be intelligible and self-contained within 20 pages.

The proceedings will be published by Springer in the in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The the final versions of the accepted papers will have a page limit of 20 pages including references and appendices.

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

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference.
