Camera-Ready Instructions

Step 1. Submission

In order to fulfil with the proceedings preparation deadline, we need your camera version files no later than June 3, 2022.

  • Remember, that full papers are up to 15 pages, while short papers must be up to 11 pages.

  • Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ instructions and use the proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers .

  • Authors must upload a *.zip file through EasyChair, using the update option of the original submission, with:

    1. Source files (Word or LaTeX)

    2. Final, generated pdf file

    3. Consent to publish in Springer CCIS - please download, fill in, and sign the publication agreement. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper.

Additional remarks:

  • We need all source files (LaTeX files with all the associated style files, special fonts and eps files, or Word or rtf files) and the final pdfs of all papers. For LaTeX papers, references are to be supplied as bbl files to avoid loss of data from conversion from bib to bbl. Please note that hyperlinks cannot be included in references.

  • All figures are printed in black and white, unless a special arrangement has been made for colored figures. Colored figures remain in color in the online version. Please make sure that any colored figures are equally comprehensible in black and white. Figures and Tables should be cross referenced in the text.

  • When submitting their paper, authors should allot a corresponding author, who must be available to carry out a proof check of the paper. He or she is given a 72-hour timeslot to do so. The corresponding author should be clearly marked as such in the header of the paper. He or she is also the one who signs the copyright form on behalf of all the authors.

  • Springer implements the ORCID identifier for proceedings, providing authors with a digital identifier that distinguishes them from every other researcher. We encourage all contributing authors to include their ORCID ids in the address information.

Step 2. Registration

The camera-ready submission process will not be concluded until paper registration is performed. A different registration is required per accepted paper, even if the same author presents different accepted papers. This is a mandatory requirement for an accepted paper to be included in the proceedings. The registration link will be available soon.

  • Please, note that the early registration has a fee discount until June 15, 2022.

Paper presentation

Each paper should be presented by a registered author. Further instructions will be sent to authors of all acepted papers in due time.
