Submission Guide


Submissions must be in PDF, formatted in the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). For details on the LNCS style, see Springer’s Author Instructions.

Each author will either be expected to sign the LNCS copyright form or select the optional Open Access option which goes with the CC-BY4.0 license (see here for the details) and costs €38 per page (e.g., €570 for a paper of 15 pages) with the fee being charged on top of the conference fee. (revised 21 April 2021)

The authors may self-archive and make available an author-created version of their own contribution on their own website and/or on their employer’s website, including their final version (as submitted to the conference or workshop after the reviewing process).

The author may archive and make available the same on non-commercial archival repositories like ArXiv/CoRR, HAL, etc. The author may state explicitly that, content-wise, such a version is the final one; however, they may not use the publisher’s version of the paper as published in the printed and electronic proceedings.

The author’s archiving and self-archiving rights start immediately upon completion of the work. The author of an individual contribution retains the right to use their contribution for their further scientific career by including the final published paper in their dissertation or doctoral thesis, provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

The authors also retain the right to use, without having to ask, parts of the contribution (e.g., figures, tables, paragraphs, etc.) for inclusion in future work, and to publish a substantially revised version (at least 30% new content) presenting new content elsewhere, provided that the original contribution is cited properly.
