Regular Papers

Regular ICCIDS 2021 submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis should be included. Review forms will be made available prior to the deadline.

Regular papers may consist of 12 - 15 pages of content including references. However, page restrictions will not be followed strictly, if the authors wish to have more explanation of their work.

Short Papers

ICCIDS 2021 also solicits short papers. Short paper submissions must describe original and unpublished work. Short papers should have a point that can be made in a few pages. Some kinds of short papers are:

  • A small, focused contribution
  • Work in progress
  • Experience notes
  • Survey papers
  • A negative result
  • An opinion piece

Short papers may consist of 6 - 8 pages including references.Short papers will be presented in one or more oral or poster sessions. While short papers will be distinguished from regular papers in the proceedings, there will be no distinction in the proceedings between short papers presented orally and as posters. However, page restrictions will not be followed strictly, if the authors wish to have more explanation of their work.

Submission Format

Authors must follow the Springer LNCS formatting instructions. For camera-ready papers use Latex or Word style (Author’s instruction page: http://preview.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines). Each paper will receive at least three reviews. At least one author of each accepted paper must register by the early registration date indicated on the conference website and present the paper.

Accepted papers that are presented at the conference will be included in the conference proceedings and published in the Springer IFIP AICT (Advances in Information and Communication Technology series. Volumes published will be indexed in Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) - part of Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science, EI Engineering Index, ACM Digital Library, DBLP, Google Scholar and Scopus.
