Submission and Decision

Submitted papers (until 10-page limit) must comply with the format of Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing series (see Instructions for Authors at Springer Website or download a DOC example) be written in English, Spanish or Portuguese, must not have been published before, not be under review for any other conference or publication and not include any information leading to the authors’ identification. Therefore, the authors’ names, affiliations and bibliographic references should not be included in the version for evaluation by the Scientific Committee. This information should only be included in the camera-ready version, saved in Word or Latex format and also in PDF format. These files must be accompanied by the Consent to Publish form filled out, in a ZIP file, and uploaded at the conference management system.

All papers will be subjected to a “double-blind review” by at least two members of the Scientific Committee.

Based on Scientific Committee evaluation, a paper can be rejected or accepted by the Conference Chairs. In the later case, it can be accepted as paper or poster.

The authors of papers accepted as posters must build and print a poster to be exhibited during the Conference. This poster must follow an A1 or A2 vertical format. The Conference can includes Work Sessions where these posters are presented and orally discussed, with a 7 minute limit per poster.

The authors of accepted papers will have 15 minutes to present their work in a Conference Work Session; approximately 5 minutes of discussion will follow each presentation.

 

Publication and Indexing

To ensure that an accepted paper is published, at least one of the authors must be fully registered by the 20th of October 2017, and the paper must comply with the suggested layout and page-limit (until 10 pages). Additionally, all recommended changes must be addressed by the authors before they submit the camera-ready version.

No more than one paper per registration will be published. An extra fee must be paid for publication of additional papers, with a maximum of one additional paper per registration. One registration permits only the participation of one author in the conference.

Papers written in English and accepted and registered will be published in Proceedings by Springer, in a book of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing series, will  be submitted for indexation by ISI, EI-Compendex, SCOPUS and DBLP, among others, and will be available in the SpringerLink Digital Library.

Papers written in Spanish or Portuguese and accepted and registered will be published in Proceedings by AISTI and will be submitted for evaluation and possible indexation by ISI, EI-Compendex and SCOPUS.

The authors of the best selected papers will be invited to extend them for publication in international journals indexed by ISI, SCOPUS, EI-Compendex and DBLP, among others.
