Instructions for Authors

All the submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted to another conference or journal for consideration of publication. Submissions must be fully anonymous with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments or obvious references. Submissions must be written in English and have at most 18 pages (LNCS format, including everything (i.e. references, appendices etc)). Papers should be sufficiently intelligible and self-contained without appendices so that PC members can make decisions without reading appendices. You may wish to purchase up to two additional pages at $100NZD per page. Submissions not meeting the submission guidelines risk rejection regardless of their merits.

Papers must be submitted using the EasyChair system via the link on the ACISP 2019 conference website.

The proceeding will be published by Springer as a volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Author instructions and LaTeX/Word templates for LNCS publications can be found via the following link: 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, through which the copyright for their paper is transferred to Springer. 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.

Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are also available in Overleaf.

Please feel free to take a look at what is new in proceedings publishing, for example regarding data publishing at Springer.

Authors who have included their email addresses in their papers will receive an email roughly four weeks after publication of the proceedings, linking them to their personal My Springer page. From here, you will be able to download the pdf of the entire volume. In addition, authors are entitled to a 40% discount off Springer publications. Details are given on the MySpringer page.
