Authors from industry, academia and research institutions are invited to submit original scientific contributions to the conference. Submitted papers must follow the provided Springer template and author guidelines except where deviations are specified by the organizing committee (e.g. page limits). Full manuscripts of up to 8 pages will be accepted. Submissions should include 5 keywords related to the conference topics. Authors are strongly encouraged to submit their papers to a special session if the scope of their paper fits the theme of one of the available special sessions. All abstracts and submitted full papers will be peer reviewed by the international scientific committees.

At least one author per paper needs to be registered for the conference during upload of camera-ready versions. The final conference proceedings will be published online before the conference. Therefore, the deadlines for the submission and publication process are firm and must be met by all authors.

Author guidelines

To ensure a smooth publication process, all submissions must adhere to the Springer author guidelines, except where other details are provided by the conference organizers, in which case these take precedence over the Springer author guidelines (e.g. submission page limit). Microsoft Word template and usage instructions are provided below. More information is available on the Springer website.

Please consider that all camera-ready paper submissions must be accompanied by a signed copyright form during final submission. The copyright form must be uploaded in .pdf format. Note that only when the review phases have completed and your paper is accepted for publication will it be possible to upload both the required source file(s) and copyright form.
