All papers accepted for oral presentation will be published in the Journal Research in Computing Science ISSN 1665-9899. Authors should submit original previously unpublished research papers written in English. Only electronic submissions will be accepted through the conference paper submission web page. See the conference web page for details.
Besides, authors of the two best papers will be asked to prepare an extended version of their papers to be published in the Journal Computer Science and Systems, ISSN 1405-5546, indexed by CONACYT-Mexico, LatinIndex, Redalic and E-Journal.
Papers submitted for consideration for the oral session should strictly following the LNCS/LNAI format guidelines and not exceed 10 pages in this format.
All submissions will be subject to blind peer review and thus must not contain the names of the authors or other indications of the authors' identity (such as auto-references). Submissions not following formatting guidelines or revealing the authors' identity may be rejected without review.
Submissions are received electronically through the SUBMISSION PAGE. We strongly encourage you to register an abstract and title as soon as you have it ready, as expression of interest.
