Submission of papers is now closed!

Authors will need to submit their final camera-ready paper (see requirements below) to Springer’s Online Conference Service. Please visit the author guidelines page before making a submission. We recommend that you read the author guidelines document to ensure you have all information you need, and download the paper kit so that your paper is correctly formatted.


When submitting your final camera-ready version of the paper to Springer’s OCS please make sure:

  • The final paper should be 8-10 pages in Springer LNCS format.

  • The name and email address of the contact author is provided.

  • Authors’ names should be written out in full in the header of the paper.

  • The final camera-ready version of the paper is uploaded as a PDF.

  • All source files (LaTeX files with all the associated style files, special fonts and eps files, or Word or rtf files) are uploaded. References (in MathPhySci style) are to be supplied as BBL files (with the .bbl extension) to avoid omission of data during conversion from Bib to BBL. We would encourage you to include DOIs in your references.

  • The prefilled copyright form is completed and uploaded. One author may sign on behalf of all of the other authors of a particular paper, providing permission has been given to do so. In this case, the author signs for and accepts responsibility for releasing this material on behalf of any and all co-authors. Digital signatures are not acceptable.

  • Apply for an individual ORCID and include it in the header of your paper.

After the files have been worked upon, Springer’s typesetters will send a copy of the final PDF of each paper to its contact author. The contact author is asked to check through the final PDF to make sure that no errors have crept in during the transfer or preparation of the files.
