An example of abstract formatting is provided on the conference web site:
Decisions regarding acceptance of talks for oral presentation at the conference will be made by the Program Committee on the basis of abstracts. Abstracts that do not fit the conference scope or do not adhere to the formatting requirements may be rejected. Accepted talks will be included into the conference program if at least one author pays the conference fee.
Pre-conference proceedings will be published in English (peer reviewed, referenced in Scopus database), presumably in Springer series "Communications in Computer and Information Science". All proceedings papers must be prepared by Springer rules for the LNCS:
The following two options are acceptable for proceedings papers:
- Regular paper, 10–14 pages;
- Short communication, 6–8 pages.
The proceedings papers should present new unpublished results. Decisions on acceptance of papers to the proceedings will be made by the Program Committee on the basis of evaluations of reviewers.
Submissions and Registration
Both LaTex and pdf-files of the abstracts should be sent via e-mail to the address of the Organizing Committee firstname.lastname@example.org . Authors willing to submit a proceedings paper following an abstract, should mention this in the e-mail with the abstract.
The papers for proceedings will be submitted by the EasyChair system:
Regular registration fee: 5000 rub. (approximately $85 at current rate)
Student registration fee: 3000 rub. (approximately $50 at current rate)
