Submissions must contain original unpublished work and may not be under consideration for any other conference or journal. All submissions will be subjected to a double blind review by a panel of experts and will be evaluated on the basis of originality, significance, quality of research, quality of writing, and contribution to conference program diversity.
All submissons must be in English and should be formatted according to the Springer LNICST format. Microsoft Word and LaTex templates as well as complete formatting instructions can be found at: http://www.springer.com/series/8197
All submissions must be anonymized to support the blind review process.
To prepare an anonymized submission, authors are expected to remove author and institutional identities from the cover page, the acknowledgements section, and the PDF meta-data. Institution information should also be removed from the body of the text. For instance, use “…participants were recruited from a university campus” instead of “…participants were recruited from .” Additionally, we recommend removing marks that identify institutional affiliation from images and supplementary videos (e.g., institutional attire, logos) as much as possible.
However, we ask that authors leave citations to their prior work un-anonymized in order to provide a more comprehensive review of prior work including the authors’ own research. Authors citing their own prior work should discuss it in the third person. For instance, use “Prior work by …” instead of “Our prior work …”
