Paper submission

Each paper is to be submitted electronically as a single PDF file through EasyChair, via this link. The LNCS copyright form should be provided as well.

SUM 2019 solicits papers in the following three categories:

  • Long papers: technical papers reporting original research or survey papers
  • Short papers: papers reporting promising work-in-progress, system descriptions, position papers on controversial issues, or survey papers providing a synthesis of some current research trends
  • Extended abstracts of recently published work in a relevant journal or top-tier conference

Regular research papers should be at most 14 pages (including references, figures, and tables). Short papers should be between 4 and 8 pages. Extended abstracts should be at most 2 pages and should reference the originally published work.

Submission guidelines

The proceedings will be published in the Springer LNCS-LNAI series.

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

Any author contributing to SUM 2019 and interested in Open Access or Open Choice may refer to Springer’s webpage. The address(es) for the invoice(s) and the CC-BY Consent-to-Publish form(s) should be provided at the same time as the files for the publication.
