Paper Submission

The submission should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including motivation and a clear comparison with related work. 
The main text, including title, abstract, and references, should not exceed 12 pages in LIPIcs style and may include an optional appendix. 
They must not be submitted simultaneously to another conference with refereed proceedings or to a journal. 
Drafts which contain essentially the same results as papers under review in other conferences or journals cannot be submitted to ISAAC 2016.  

At least one author of an accepted paper is required to present the paper at the conference as a registered participant.

Only electronic submission will be allowed and only pdf files will be accepted via Easychair:


For the first time the proceedings will be published in the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) series, based at Schloss Dagstuhl.
Best Paper Awards
The Best Paper Award and the Best Student Paper Award will be awarded. 
A paper is eligible for the Best Student Paper Award if all authors are full-time students at the time of submission. To indicate that a submission is eligible, please add the phrase "Eligible for the Best Student Paper Award" in the abstract.
