Conference papers:

  • Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science will publish the SECITC 2015 accepted papers as a post-proceedings, after the meeting presentations feed-backs incorporated within the final re-revised papers.
  • Best papers that are not accepted to Springer’s LNCS, will be published in the ISSN proceedings volume with authors acceptance.
  • In order to have the conference proceedings published in Springer’s LNCS, Lecture Notes in Computer Science, must be accomplished the following rules:
    • The submission must be anonymous with no author names, affiliations or obvious references.
    • The length of the submission must be at most 12 pages excluding references and appendices. The text should be in a single column format, in at least 11-point fonts and have reasonable margins. If the submission is accepted, the length of the final version for Springer’s LNCS will be at most 20 pages including references and appendices.
    • The submission should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. The introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at the level understandable for a non-expert reader. The reviewers are not required to read appendices—the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
    • Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published in a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings, or has submitted/is planning to submit before the author notification deadline to a journal or other conferences/workshops that have proceedings. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or workshop that has proceedings. SECITC reserves the right to share information about submissions with other program committees to detect parallel submissions.
    • Program committee members are restricted to one submission each. Exceptions to this rule can be arranged for submissions co-authored with students so as not to block publishing by PhD candidates.
    • It is encouraged that the submission be processed according to the instructions listed on Springer’s web site. These instructions are mandatory for the final papers. Submitted papers must be in PDF format and should be submitted electronically. A detailed description of the electronic submission procedure will be announced at the conference homepage.
    • Full paper submission is on 1st March 2015.
    • Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by 20th March 2015.
    • Authors guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. The final versions of the accepted papers will be due on 31th March 2015.
    • The conference starts on 11-th June 2015.
