Call for Papers

Full papers should be 10+ pages (excluding references) and short papers should be 6+ pages (excluding references). Paper length must match the size of the contribution.

Papers will be subjected to a double blind peer review by a panel of domain experts. Each paper will be reviewed by a minimum of 3 qualified, independent reviewers. Authors are expected to anonymise their papers by removing all author and institutional identity from the title and header of the paper as well as the main body of the text. However all references must remain intact, i.e. submitted papers should NOT have blank references (e.g., “8. REMOVED FOR REVIEWING”). In cases where you build on (and cite) your own work we suggest you refer to yourself in the third person, for example “This study builds on prior work by [author names] [8].” Submissions will be included in the conference proceedings with the proviso that at least one author attends the symposium in order to present the paper and participate in general congress activities.


All submissions must use the Springer CS Proceedings format. Latex and Microsoft Word templates are available for download at this link:
