Author Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit original research papers (of, at most, 14 pages in LNCS format), or one-page poster abstracts, to the conference EasyChair Site. Papers must be submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF); revised versions of manuscripts must be prepared in LaTeX, using the Springer LNCS style. Note, one-page abstracts will only be considered for posters.

Papers must not be under simultaneous consideration by any other conference with published proceedings. All accepted papers must be presented at the conference.

Accepted papers will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series, and authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions for publication in a special issue of Natural Computing.

Please note that these guidelines apply only to the main conference track; satellite workshops have their own submission procedures and publication arrangements.
