conference with proceedings. The proceedings will be published by
Springer in the the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
All submissions should follow the LNCS template
from the time they are submitted. Submitted papers should be
at most 16 pages (using 10-point font), excluding the bibliography and
well-marked appendices, and at most 20 pages total. Committee members
