Paper submission

We are inviting original scientific contributions of two categories: full research papers (up to 14 pages), and short papers (up to 6 pages) describing ongoing works. Authors should submit an original paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, using EasyChair submission system. Submitted papers should be prepared in Latex using Springer LNCS format (

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field. As the reviewing will be blind, papers must not include authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity must be avoided.

Papers must be submitted electronically using the Easychair submission software. The only accepted format for submitted papers is PDF.


All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN number. The previous conference proceedings were published by Springer Publishers as a volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS 7053). The publisher of the 2013 conference proceedings is yet to be decided.

After the reviewing process is completed, the contact author of each paper will be notified of the result, by e-mail. The authors are required to follow the reviews in order to improve their paper before the camera-ready submission. At least one author of each paper must register for the conference, paying the registration fee, in order to have their paper included in the proceedings.

Demo session

The demonstration abstracts (1 page) will be published at the conference website.
