This year, there will be a radical change in the format of paper presentations. Participants are required to present their work in an interactive style. All authors of accepted papers will be invited to showcase their work in a demo session.

Submission Requirements:

All submissions must use the Springer CS Proceedings format. Latex and Microsoft Word templates are available for download at this link:
