All submission must conform to the formatting instructions of Springer LNCS series. Each submission must be in English, in PDF format, and include in the first page: (1) the title, (2) the names and affiliations of all authors, (3) contact author’s email, address and telephone number, (4) a brief, one paragraph abstract of the paper, (5) indication whether the paper is a regular submission, or a brief announcement submission, (6) indication whether the submission is eligible to be considered for the best student paper award. A regular submission must not exceed 15 pages (including the title, authors, abstract, figures, and references). Additional necessary details for an expert to verify the main claims of the submission should be included in a clearly marked appendix if extra space is needed. A brief announcement submission must not exceed 5 pages and should not include appendix. Any submission deviating from these guidelines will be rejected without consideration. It is recommended that a regular submission begin with a succinct statement of the problem being addressed, a summary of the main results or conclusions, a brief explanation of their significance, a brief statement of the key ideas, and a comparison with related work, all tailored to a non-specialist. Technical development of the work, directed to the specialist, should follow. Papers outside of the conference scope will be rejected without review. If requested by the authors on the cover page, a regular submission that is not selected for a regular presentation will also be considered for the brief announcement format. This will not affect consideration of the paper for a regular presentation.
All accepted papers will be published as proceedings of Springer LNCS series.
Extended and revised versions of selected papers will be considered for a special issue of the journal Information and Computation.
Prizes will be given to the best paper and best student paper. A paper is eligible for the best student paper if at least one of its authors is a full-time student at submission time. This must be indicated in the cover page. The PC may decline to confer awards or may split awards.
