Instruction for Authors

The on-site proceedings will be published by Springer in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Submissions must be written in English, formatted in the Springer LNCS style (limited to 10 pages). In order to enable double-blind refereeing, the paper must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references. Each paper must include a short abstract and a list of keywords indicating subject classification; its introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Acceptance of a paper means an obligation for at least one of the authors to attend the conference and present the paper.

Authors are requested to submit original papers only. Papers that have previously been published and papers that are currently being considered for publication by another journal or conference are not eligible.
All submitted papers will be refereed by members of the Program Committee for correctness, originality, relevance to the conference, and quality of presentation.

To submit a paper please use the paper submission link.
