Instructions for paper submission

We invite submissions of original work; papers must not overlap substantially with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a venue with proceedings. Submissions can be up to 16 pages long, excluding bibliography and appendices. Shorter submissions are encouraged. PC members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be self-contained and intelligible without them. Submissions must be written in English and need to comply with the Springer LNCS style guide, which can be found at:

Authors must submit their papers by the deadline indicated on the conference web site and follow the requirements stated there. All deadlines are firm.

Subject to the authors' consent, accepted papers will be published in Springer’s LNCS series.

Note: In order to promote the content of the APF it is proposed to publish proceedings using the services of the particular publisher. However, authors have the choice to publish with whoever they choose.
