Papers must be prepared using the LNCS style and be electronically submitted in PDF format using EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sss2013). Two types of papers can be submitted: Regular Papers and Brief Announcements. Submissions for regular papers should be no longer than 15 pages (including the title, authors, abstract, figures, and references) in LNCS style (see LNCS author guidelines); a submission may have an appendix of at most two pages beyond the 15 page limit. Brief announcements are restricted to two pages using the LNCS style, with no appendix. Submissions deviating from these guidelines will be rejected without consideration of their merits. If requested by the authors, a regular submission that is not selected for a regular presentation will also be considered for a brief announcement. This request must be clearly indicated in the first page of the paper. Such a request will not affect consideration of the paper for a regular paper. A paper submitted at this forum is expected to be original research not previously published. A submission may not be concurrently submitted to another conference, workshop, or journal.
Best Paper and Best Student Paper Awards
The program committee will select two papers for best paper and best student paper awards. A paper is eligible for the best student paper award if at least one of its authors is a full-time student at the time of submission. This must be clearly indicated in the first page of the paper.
