Paper Submission

Submission guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. All paper submissions must contain title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. All submissions will be subjected to a thorough double blind review by at least three reviewers. Submitted papers shall be anonymised and all author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, and obvious traceable references should be eliminated to be eligible for the review process.

The following two paper categories are welcome. Any submission needs to be explicitly marked as “full paper” or “short paper”.

  • Full papers scientific research papers, surveying works and industrial experiences describing significant advances in C(I)IP. Full papers should be no longer than 12 pages, including bibliography and well-marked appendices.
  • Short papers work-in-progress reports, R&D project and industrial experience reports. Short papers should be 4 to 6 pages long.

Submissions should be done in accoring to the Springer LNCS format (Latex template, Word template). Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are also available in Overleaf.

Guidelines for proceedings

If your paper is accepted for publication, you will need to follow these instructions. Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form, through which the copyright for their paper is transferred to Springer. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
