Call for papers

Submission presenting original and unpublished research on all fundamental aspects of CAs and DCSs are welcomed, as well as submissions demonstrating their value in a particular field of application.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Paper categories

There are two categories of submission – full papers and exploratory papers. Full papers are meant to report more complete and denser research, while the later submission deadline for exploratory papers allows short reports of recent discoveries, work-in-progress and/or partial results. Submissions in the full paper category are refereed and selected by the program committee. Papers in the exploratory category go through a less rigorous evaluation process. All accepted papers must be presented at the conference.


Accepted full papers will appear in the proceedings published by Springer in the LNCS series. Exploratory papers will not be included in the LNCS proceedings.

Submission guidelines

Authors are invited to submit papers of no more than 12 pages (for full papers) or 8 pages (for exploratory papers) by clicking the following link

Submissions should contain original research that has not previously been published. Supplementary material that exceeds the above mentioned page limits may be included as an appendix and will be considered at the committee’s discretion (note that appendices will not be published in the proceedings). Submission must be formatted in LaTeX using the LNCS format and submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF). Papers authored or co-authored by PC members are also welcomed.
