Submission procedure

The papers must contain original, relevant and previously unpublished sound research results related to any of the topics of the conference. The papers must be submitted in English. The conference proceedings will be published with Springer in their Communications in Computer and Information Science series ISSN:1865-0929

Authors should prepare their manuscripts of 12-15 pages (Springer formatting guidelines, including figures and references.


Submitting a paper implies that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the conference. Submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the international program committee based on relevance, originality, significance, quality and clarity. Accepted papers will be given guidelines for preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance.

Authors of accepted submissions will be asked to give an approx. 20 minutes presentation of their research work. Presentations should include research results, interesting research questions, and open issues to be discussed during the conference.

Each accepted paper must have a corresponding registered author to be included in the proceedings. Papers that do not have an associated registered author will not be included in the proceedings.We cannot warrant the paper to appear in the proceedings if registration is not done within time limits.
