Call for Papers

Authors are invited to submit the following types of papers:

  • Regular Papers (12 pages, with up to 2 extra pages for a fee) that entail a complete study with novelty in method, a systematic performance analysis, and related interpretation.
  • Short Paper (8-9 pages) that describe either a novel method with initial testing, or a previously reported method but with new systematic analysis that yielded unique performance insights.
  • Poster Paper (4-5 pages) that either report the progress of a new method being developed, or a proof-of-concept demo of a new method.

The work should not have been presented or published or being considered for review or publication by other conferences or journals.

The paper should be formatted according to Springer LNCS - Lecture Notes in Computer Science format. The page limit for each paper type includes an abstract, all text, figures, tables and references.
