Submission of Papers

Regular papers on all the above topics should be formatted according to the Springer CS Proceedings (LNCS) format and should not exceed 12 pages. Short and demo papers as well as research-in-progress reports should not exceed 6 pages according to the above format. The KICSS 2014 papers can be submitted via Easychair (the submission link is now active only for Short papers, Demo papers, Industry papers and Research-in-progress reports).

Submissions that overlap substantially with any other papers printed, submitted, or accepted for publication or presentation elsewhere are not allowed.

The KICSS'2014 Post-Proceedings will be published in the Springer Series: Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing (AISC), ISSN 2194-5357. AISC is indexed by ISI Proceedings, SCOPUS, EICompendex, Zentralblatt Math, DBLP, MetaPress, Ulrich's, Springerlink, see more here. They will contain all the revised regular papers and - following an extension - a selection of research-in-progress reports as well as short papers.

The authors of the selected best papers presented at the Conference will be invited to submit the revised and extended versions of their contributions to special issues of high-rank scientific journals.

The best papers written and presented by PhD and MSc students will be awarded the KICSS'2014 Prizes. Eligible authors should provide a proof of their full-time student status with their registration and be no more than 35 years old at the time of the conference.
