Paper categories

There are two categories of submission – full papers and exploratory
papers. Full papers should report more complete and denser research,
while the later submission deadline for exploratory papers allows quick
reporting of recent discoveries, work-in-progress and/or partial
results. Submissions in the full paper category are refereed and
selected by the program committee. Papers in the exploratory category
go through a less rigorous evaluation process.


Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of no more than 14
pages (for full papers) or 8 pages (for exploratory papers) via the
EasyChair system at

Submissions should contain original research that has not previously
been published. Concurrent submissions to other conferences/journals is
not permitted. Supplementary material that exceeds the above mentioned
page limits may be included as an appendix and will be considered at
the committee's discretion (note that appendices will not be published
in the proceedings). Submission must be formatted in LaTeX using the
LNCS format (see
and submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF). Papers authored or co
-authored by PC members are also welcome and will follow a specific
evaluation process.


Accepted full papers will appear in the proceedings published by
Springer in the LNCS series and will be available at the conference.
Exploratory papers will not be included in the LNCS proceedings;
however, they will be printed locally and given to conference
