Author's guidelines

All submissions must be made electronically by May 31, 2020 June 15, 2020 through the 

online submission system EasyChair

Contributions MUST be in English and should be submitted in the form of an extended abstract with references (max 4 pages).

At least three members of the program committee will review all submissions and will provide an evaluation according to the following criteria:

  •  originality and novelty

  •  quality and accuracy

  •  relevance to the conference

  •  impact in the fields of the conference

  • evidence (theoretical or empirical)

  • presentation and clarity


The authors of accepted abstracts will be asked to present their work at the Workshop. The accepted abstracts will be available in a digital book of abstracts of the Workshop.

The authors of the accepted contributions will be invited to submit an extended version of their work in the form of a final full paper (at least 12 pages comprising references). Full papers will undergo a second round of reviews. Accepted full papers, whose authors will have attended the workshop (at least one author) , will be included, free of charge, in the workshop post-proceedings, published in SpringerCommunications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series, indexed in Scopus and other important indexing databases. 


If the authors desire to publish open access their paper, this is possible through the Springer Open Choice. Authors will have to communicate this to the organization, sign a special copyright form, different from the standard one, and provide the billing address of the authors/their organization for the invoice. Each paper will be invoiced individually.
