Communications: up to 5 pages in LNCS style. Suitable for extended abstracts of papers already appeared, or submitted, or to be submitted, elsewhere; papers reporting ongoing research on which the authors wish to get feedback at ICTCS; overviews of PhD-theses,  research projects, etc…

To ease the reviewing process, the authors of regular papers may add an appendix (although reviewers are not required to consider it in their evaluation). All contributions must be written in English.

Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts in PDF via EasyChair:

For each accepted contribution, at least one of the authors is required to attend the conference and present the paper.


All accepted original contributions (communications and regular papers) will be published on
