Two types of contributions are accepted: Full Paper and Extended Abstract. We will not accept any paper that, at the time of submission, is under review or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or conference. This restriction does not apply to extended abstracts since they are not targeted for publication in the proceedings. The review process is single-blind.

Extended Abstract

Recommended to be between 2-3 pages. They should not exceed 3 pages.

Full Paper

Recommended to be between 8-10 pages. They should not exceed 12 pages in total including bibliography.


Each submission must follow the Springer publication format available on the website of Studies in Computational Intelligence Series in the Authors and Editors instructions entry.

For more information refer to the Springer Website.

All submitted contributions will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression by at least two reviewers. The organizers will examine the reviews and make the final papers selection.
