Call for Papers

Paper Submission

Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted to another conference or journal for consideration of publication. Papers must be written in English and be fully anonymous with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements or obvious references. They should be at most 16 pages long in total, in standard LNCS format (except for author names and affiliations). Papers should be enough intelligible and self contained without appendices so that PC members can review papers without them. Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and published in the proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register with the workshop and present the paper. The conference proceedings will be published in a special volume of Springer LNCS.


Prizes will be awarded to the author of the best paper (and the author of the best student-paper).
