Authors should submit an original paper in
English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, using the
on-line submission procedure. The initial submission must have between 3
to 13 pages otherwise it will be rejected without review. Please check
the paper formats page so you may be aware of the accepted paper page
The guidelines for paper formatting provided at the conference web ought
to be used for all submitted papers. The preferred submission format is
the same as the camera-ready format. Please check and carefully follow
the instructions and templates provided.
Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its
technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or
environments to which it is applicable.
Papers that are out of the conference scope or contain any form of plagiarism will be rejected without reviews.
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings.
Please read INSTICC's ethical
norms regarding plagiarism and self-plagiarism.
Remarks about the on-line submission procedure:
1. A "double-blind" paper evaluation method will be used. To
facilitate that, the authors are kindly requested to produce and
provide the paper, WITHOUT any reference to any of the authors. This
means that is necessary to remove the authors personal details, the
acknowledgements section and any reference that may disclose the
LaTeX/PS/PDF/DOC/DOCX/RTF format are accepted.
2. The web submission procedure automatically sends an
acknowledgement, by e-mail, to the contact author.
Paper submission types:
Regular Paper Submission
A regular paper presents a work where the research is completed or
almost finished. It does not necessary means that the acceptance is as
a full paper. It may be accepted as a "full paper" (30 min. oral
presentation) , a "short paper" (20 min. oral presentation) or a
Position Paper Submission
A position paper presents an arguable opinion about an issue. The goal
of a position paper is to convince the audience that your opinion is
valid and worth listening to, without the need to present completed
research work and/or validated results. It is, nevertheless, important
to support your argument with evidence to ensure the validity of your
claims. A position paper may be a short report and discussion of ideas,
facts, situations, methods, procedures or results of scientific
research (bibliographic, experimental, theoretical, or other) focused
on one of the conference topic areas. The acceptance of a position
paper is restricted to the categories of "short paper" or "poster",
i.e. a position paper is not a candidate to acceptance as "full
All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.
