Please follow the guidelines below when preparing the camera ready version of your paper.

  1. The page limit is 15 for full Research papers and 6-8 for short papers, including all references and figures.  Workshop papers can be 8-14 pages, and demo papers should be no shorter than 4 pages. 
  2. All papers must be prepared by strictly following the Springer LNCS format.  Please familiarize yourself with “Information for Authors of Computers Science Proceedings” at https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines, and download the appropriate template (Word or LaTex) for the preparation of your paper. Please do not alter margins or use other tricks (e.g., use \vspace, change font size etc) to gain more space. If you do, your paper will be returned and you will need to fix these issues.
  3. Additional pages are available at AU$100 per page, with a limit of at most 2 additional pages per paper.
  4. Please fill out the “Consent to Publish” form provided on the conference website. The corresponding author should sign on behalf of all of the authors of a particular paper, having obtained their permission to do so in advance. The corresponding author cannot be changed once the files have been sent to Springer.

      • i. Corresponding author name
      • ii. Corresponding author email
