Instruction for Authors:

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel for consideration of any other conference or workshop with proceedings. Submissions should be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgement or obvious references. Submissions should have at most 16 pages excluding the bibliography and appendices, and at most 20 pages in total, using at least 11-point fonts and with reasonable margins. Please number the pages in submissions. The total length of the final versions for Springer's LNCS is at most 20 pages (regular) and 14 pages (short) respectively. Committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them. At least one author of each accepted paper must register with the conference and present the paper. Submissions must be submitted electronically in PDF format, and the submission procedure and the submission link are announced at the web page. Submissions not meeting the submission guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. It is strongly encouraged that submissions be processed in LaTeX.
