Instructions for late breaking abstract submissions (closed)

In addition to short and long papers, this year the program committee invites researchers to submit abstracts about current or recent work in order to provide the opportunity to present exciting results (published or unpublished) or work in progress at the conference. The main goal is to stimulate discussions at the conference and to initiate future collaboration between participants.

The abstracts will not be peer-reviewed nor published in the conference proceedings. The Program Chairs will select the most relevant and highest quality abstracts for presentation. We expect to have time slots of 10 to 15 minutes for each of these talks.

There is no strict limit on the number of pages, but about one or two pages is expected. Please submit your abstracts as a PDF, preferably in LNCS style format (

Instructions for short paper submissions (closed)

Short papers are also encouraged, limited to 5 LNCS pages plus references and should be prepared with the same format as long papers ( Although containing less material, short papers should describe original unpublished work and will be reviewed to the same criteria of quality as long papers. It is also encouraged to submit short papers about work in progress on ideas that are interesting but for which the practical or theoretical relevance is not yet fully identified. Short papers will be presented at the conference and published in the conference proceedings.

The submission deadlines are listed here. For any further queries on the paper submission process, please contact the Program Chairs on the email See also the Call for Papers.
