General Track and Invited Session Paper
Submission and Review
Papers for consideration the conference may be submitted to the General Full or Short Tracks, or to an Invited Session on a specific topic. Authors should in most cases submit to the General Track unless the submission of their paper has been requested by an Invited Session Chair. or the subject of the paper closely matches the topic of the session. Selection of the Full Track, Short Track or a specific Invited Session for submission is by means of a drop-down box on the submission system.
Submissions for the conference must be made as complete papers (there is no abstract submission stage) submitted as PDF documents through the PROSE online submission and review system.
Papers must be formatted according to the Springer instructions to be found ..here.. Instructions are provided for preparing the document using MS Word and LaTeX - you may use either method.
Each accepted paper will be published as a book chapter, hence authors should follow the Springer instructions as if preparing a single chapter for book. Ignore the section in the Springer instructions entitled "Manuscript Submission to Springer", as authors will submit individual chapters and these will be assembled into a composite manuscript which the conference organisers will submit to Springer.Full Track Papers

Short Track papers may be less detailed descriptions than Full Track papers, but should still be complete and self-contained. The guide length for Short Track papers is 6 pages in Springer format.Invited Sessions Papers
Assume that Invited Sessions papers should be 10 pages in length unless the IS Chair specifies a shorter length.
