Submissions are to be made to the submission web site at: Papers must be
received by the deadline of July 7 (11:59 p.m. American Samoa
time). At least one author of accepted papers must guarantee that they
will present their paper at the workshop.

All submissions must be written in English, and only PDF files will be
accepted (a Latex source file will be required for the final version
of accepted papers). All submissions should be appropriately
anonymized (i.e., papers should not contain author names or
affiliations, or obvious citations). Submissions should be at most 16
pages in the LNCS format, excluding the bibliography and well-marked
appendices, and at most 20 pages in total.

As in previous years, the proceedings will be published online by
Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. As
such, the final version of an accepted paper must be in the format
required for publication in the LNCS series. Authors should consult
Springer's authors' guidelines and use their proceedings
templates. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs
( in their papers. Submissions not meeting these
guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

In addition, the corresponding author of each accepted paper, acting
on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign
a Consent-to-Publish form. 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.

Finally, note that a paper submitted to STM 2021 cannot be under
review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being
considered for STM 2021. Furthermore, after you submit to STM 2021,
you must await our response before submitting elsewhere. If you submit
your paper to another conference or journal either before or after
submission of the paper to STM 2021, we will reject your paper without
review and will also notify the other conference/journal. This
restriction applies to identical as well as to substantially similar


A Best Paper Award will be given to the paper that the Program
Committee judges to be the best in quality, execution, and impact
among all the accepted papers in the conference.
