Paper Submission Guidelines
Submissions must be made through EasyChair at:

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference/workshop with proceedings. The symposium proceedings will be
published by Springer in 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 are not required to read the
appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. All
submissions must be written in English. Submissions are to be made to
the submission web site. Only pdf files will be accepted.

Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without
consideration of their merits. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee
that their papers will be presented at the conference.

Papers must be received by the aforementioned dates, 11:59 p.m. American
Samoa time (UTC-11).
