Submissions for the Conference

We solicit high quality full submissions in the following categories:

  • original research contributions (16 pages max.)
  • application experience, case studies and software prototypes (16 pages max.)
  • surveys, comparisons, and state-of-the-art reports (16 pages max.)
  • position papers that define research projects with identified challenges and milestones (8 pages max.)
  • work-in-progress papers with preliminary results (8 pages max.)

We also invite short submissions for special sessions:

  • student papers on work in progress on an MSc or PhD project (4 pages max.)
  • tool demonstrations (2 pages max.)
  • proposals to organize birds-of-a-feather sessions (BOF) or panels (2 pages max.)

Submissions should be in English, prepared in the LNCS format (see Springer's website for details), and all page limits are measured in this format. Full submissions (those in the first four categories above) will be judged on the basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the symposium; student papers will be judged on clarity of description and the promise of interesting results; tool demonstrations, BOF proposals, and extended abstracts will be judged on relevance to the symposium. All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three program committee members. Papers should be submitted via EasyChair. Submission constitutes a commitment for at least one author to attend the symposium and present the paper, if it is accepted.

All accepted submissions will be distributed in a technical report at the Symposium.

  • The deadline for all papers to be included in the preproceedings is June 15.
