Paper Submission Instructions

Paper Submission Guidelines

Papers should be submitted conforming to the formatting instructions of Springer Verlag, LNCS series: Information for Authors of Computer Science Publications


Contributions can be submitted as either:
  • Regular papers: Submissions for regular papers must be no longer than 15 pages (including the title, authors, abstract, figures, and references) and may have an additional appendix to be read at the discretion of the Program Committee.
  • Short papers: Submissions for short papers must be no longer than 5 pages and may present novel contributions that are not necessarily thoroughly worked out. Accepted short papers will be presented in special short talk (10 minutes) and poster sessions.
  • New idea papers: Submissions for new idea papers must be no longer than 2 pages and may present completely new ideas or emerging techniques and applications.
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 short or new idea paper. This request must be clearly indicated in the first page of the paper. Such a request will not affect consideration of the paper as a regular paper. A paper submitted to SSS 2016 must be an original contribution not previously published as a regular paper (results previously published as a short paper may be submitted as a regular paper to SSS 2016). No submission may be concurrently submitted to another conference, workshop, or journal.
