Paper submissions

Submissions of original and previously unpublished work on RST/GrC and applications are encouraged. All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Submissions must be prepared in the LCNS/LNAI Springer format and have a maximum of 15 pages. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS/LNAI series, both in printed and digital forms.

Moreover, short submissions can be submitted (3-6 pages), if accepted, these can be presented at the conference but will not be published in the proceedings.

Each submitted paper will be reviewed by three independent reviewers and the decision on its acceptance will be based on the results of these revisions. All papers should be submitted through EasyChair.

Guidelines: Springer’s guidelines and technical instructions for the preparation of contributions can be found at
