Paper Submission

All papers should be submitted via Easy Chair.

Submission format: Two types of papers will be considered, Regular Papers and Brief Announcements. Submission 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 no more than two pages beyond the 15 page limit. Brief announcements are restricted to two pages in LNCS style, with no appendix. Submissions deviating from these guidelines will be rejected without consideration of their merits. If requested by the authors, through the submission system, a regular submission that is not selected for a regular presentation will also be considered for a brief announcement. Such a request will not affect the consideration of the paper as a regular paper first. A paper submitted to 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 Awards: A best paper and best student paper award will be selected by the program committee. A paper is eligible for the best student award if at least one of its authors is a full-time student at the time of submission. This must be indicated by marking the appropriate box in the submission system.

Proceedings will be published in Springer's LNCS, Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
