Call for Papers

Authors are invited to electronically submit original, English-language research contributions no longer than 12 pages formatted according to the well known IFIP AICT Springer style, or experience reports. Submitted papers must present unpublished work, not being considered for publication in other journals or conferences.

Please download the recent instructions for authors as they were released by Springer here: IFIP AICT Sample file format

Submitted papers will be refereed by at least three reviewers for quality, correctness, originality, and relevance. Notification and reviews will be communicated via email. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and included in the proceedings, which will be published by SPRINGER and they will be available on site. It is important though to follow the instructions in this page to ensure that your paper will be included in the proceedings.

Proposals for Workshops that examine emerging, innovative, or otherwise provocative issues within the conference area are encouraged as well. Workshop proposals should include a 1-2 page summary of the topic and the names and affiliations of 3-4 panelists who have made a commitment to participate. A mix of industry and academic panel members is recommended.

Proposals for 90-minute tutorials are also invited on topics within the conference area. Tutorial proposals must be at most 5 pages, they must identify the intended audience, and they must give enough material to provide a sense of what will be covered.

A fully electronic review process is being planned. Technical papers, panel and tutorial proposals should be submitted electronically. In particular, before submitting a paper (in pdf, postscript or MS Word), an author should submit an abstract (in order to get a paper id and a password), whereas panel and tutorial proposals should be sent by email to the PC chair.

A paper may not be included in the proceedings if the requirements are not met, or if the registration fee is not received by the deadline of the submission of the camera-ready. Based on the reviewers' comments and on the presentation, and after a second peer review process, a number of selected papers will be published in a special issue of a scientific Journal with high Impact Factor.
