Submissions must be prepared in Springer's LaTeX style llncs.

There are two submission formats:

  • Full papers (up to 15 pages)
  • Technical Communications (up to 6 pages)

Submitted full papers should present original and significant research results. They must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference/workshop with formal proceedings. Double submission to a workshop with informal proceedings is allowed, like for instance the DL 2014 workshop.

Technical communications are intended for promising but possibly preliminary work, position papers, system descriptions, and applications descriptions (which may be accompanied by a demo).

Submissions can be made via EasyChair.

Best Paper Award and Best Student Paper Award

Awards for Best Paper and Best Student Paper will be presented to the corresponding authors at the conference. The best student paper will be selected among the ones written mainly by students (i.e., persons not holding a PhD as of 30 March 2014), and the Best Student Paper award will be assigned only in case a student is not one of the main authors of the paper winning the Best Paper award. To qualify for the Best Student Paper award, the authors must indicate their eligibility upon submission at easychair.
