Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
The maximum length of the papers is 12 pages (6 pages for Doctoral Consortiums), including figures and references.
All proposed papers must be submitted in electronic form (PDF format) using the SSCt 2023 conference management system.
For a paper to appear in the proceedings, at least one of the authors must register for the conference by the camera-ready copy deadline. Papers must be presented by one of the authors at the conference live.
SSCT 2023 welcomes the submission of application papers with preference to the topics listed in the call for papers. All submitted papers will undergo a thorough review process; each paper will be refereed by at least three experts in the field based on relevance, originality, significance, quality and clarity. The papers must consist of original, relevant and previously unpublished sound research results related to any of the topics of the conference.
Each submission must be identified as presenting (1) theoretical/methodological research, (2) applied research/emerging applications, (3) a deployed application, and will be reviewed using criteria appropriate to its category, (4) literature surveys. These criteria are as follows:
- Theoretical/methodological research: Scientific significance, originality, technical quality, and clarity;
- Applied research/emerging applications: Significance for theoretical research or promise for application deployment;
- Deployed application: Demonstrated practical significance; originality; treatment of issues of engineering, management, and user acceptance; and clarity;
- Literature survey: Well-developed body of research, the inclusion of works from several authors, significance, clarity, open research questions.
Accepted papers will be included in SSCt2023 Proceedings. At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend the symposium to present the paper in order to include it in the conference proceedings. All accepted papers will be published by LNNS Springer Verlag.
