Camera-Ready/Final Papers Important! New this year!

All presented papers will be published in the Springer series "Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing". (Details). For a timely production and submission of the proceedings, it is IMPORTANT that you

  • mark the corresponding author in the paper, write her/his e-mail address (the corresponding will be contacted by Springer before the final publication to approve the layout-editing made by Springer)
  • respect the final deadline
  • sign the copyright & consent to publish form (papers without the copyright signature cannot appear in the proceedings)
  • respect the template
  • make sure to write correctly author's names throughout the whole submission – in the paper, in the submission system

What to submit?

  • A final PDF corresponding exactly to the final sources
  • the source files (WORD or LaTeX (for LaTeX include non-standard fonts and figure files in a .zip archive))
  • The Consent to Publish form – printed, signed by hand, scanned Copyright Form.

The instructions above are extracted from the Springer website – you may go there to have more details: Click "Instructions for Authors" on the right hand menu.
