Paper submission

We welcome submission of relevance to the topics listed below. Submissions can be in the form of long or short research papers, scientific abstracts on use cases or position papers. Accepted submissions will be published in a conference proceedings volume by Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence, and will be selected for presentation as oral or poster presentation based on recommendations of reviewers (this choice does not reflect the quality of the work).

All papers should follow the LNCS guidelines for formatting and should be 10-15 pages in length for long papers and 6-8 pages for short papers, including references and optional appendices.
