Submissions must be in English, and must not be substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any journal or other conference or workshop that has proceedings.
Submissions will take place entirely via a web system via the conferencesubmission page.
All submissions will be blind reviewed. The paper must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords.
The final proceedings version will be a paper of at most 20 pages in the llncs style, and clear instructions will be sent to the authors of accepted papers. Thus, the document submitted (excluding clear marked appendices) should correspond to what the authors expect to be published if their paper is accepted without modification. We therefore strongly recommend that authors check whether their paper (without appendices) will fit within the above LNCS space constraints (see guidelines for paper preparation and Latex style
Committee members are not required to review more than that, so the paper should be intelligible and self-contained within this length. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
