Submissions can be made in the following two categories:

1)  Regular  papers: manuscripts  under  this  category are  complete,
   mature research works. The length of regular papers, including well
   marked appendices, should not exceed 20-pages in LNCS style.

2)   WiP  papers:   work-in-progress   manuscripts  facilitate   early
   dissimination of work that are  promising but yet not complete. The
   length of WiP papers, including  well marked appendices, should not
   exceed 12-pages in LNCS style. WiP papers must clearly identify the
   goals of  the work and  the technical approach, and  include enough
   initial development  to demonstrate viability of  the approach. The
   title must  be prefixed  with "WiP:" to  clearly indicate  that the
   submission is a WiP paper.

Papers must be written in English and submitted in the Springer Verlag
LNCS Latex or Word style in PDF  format, via the link given below. The
review  process is  single-blind, meaning  that author  names will  be
visible to reviewers.  The extended versions of  selected and accepted
papers  will be  invited  for  publication in  the  Indian Academy  of
Sciences' journal - SADHANA.
