SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

High quality papers on unpublished research and implementation experiences are 

solicited for submission. All papers must be original and not substantially 

duplicate work that has been published at or is simultaneously submitted to a 

journal or another conference/workshop with proceedings.

 

All submissions must be written in English, at most 20 pages in Springer's Lecture 

Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format, including title,  abstract, and bibliography. 

The introduction should summarise the contributions of the paper at the level 

understandable for a non-expert reader. The introduction should also explain the 

relation to related work. At most 4 pages of supplemental material may be provided 

as well-marked appendices, however, the paper should be intelligible without this 

material. Submissions must be anonymous (no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, 

or obvious references).

 

The conference will also consider short papers, that is, submissions of up to 8 pages 

(in the LNCS format), for results that are not yet fully fleshed out y or that simply 

require few pages to describe but still make a significant contribution.

All submissions must be processed with  LaTeX2e according to the instructions given by 

Springer. Submitted manuscripts must be typeset in plain Springer LNCS format, in 

particular without changing the font size, margins or line spacing.Submissions not 

meeting these guidelines may be rejected without consideration of their merits.

 

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format via easychair 

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cans2018

 

At least one author of every accepted paper must register to the conference by the early 

registration deadline indicated by the organizers. Papers without a registered author will 

be removed from the proceedings. Authors have to present their own paper(s). Proceedings 

including all accepted papers will be published in LNCS and will be available at the conference.
