Paper categories

There are two categories of submission – full papers (submission now
closed) and exploratory papers. The later submission deadline for
exploratory papers allows quick reporting of recent discoveries, work
-in-progress and/or partial results. Submissions in the exploratory
category go through a less rigorous evaluation process than those in
the full paper category. Exploratory papers will not be included in the
LNCS proceedings; however, they will be printed locally and given to
conference participants.


Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of no more than 8
pages via the EasyChair system at

Submissions should contain original research that has not previously
been published. 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.
