Proposals from both industry and academia are accepted. It must be clearly indicated in the text of the summary section (abstract) whether it is a contribution from industry or academia. The works can be written in Catalan, Spanish or English. For languages other than English, the summary section must also be included in English (both languages). The format of any submission is always in PDF, regardless of the format of the template used.

Accepted contributions will be included in the book of proceedings, published by UPCommons (indexed in Google Scholar). See the “Contribution Submission Process” section below for details on how to participate in the symposium as an author and speaker.

Work template:

To write the documents, you must use the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) conference proceedings template. You can find the instructions and download links for the templates in Word and LaTEX format here (see box below “Important downloads”).

System for sending contributions:

Author registration:

How to carry out the confirmation and registration process will be published later.

Contribution submission process:

The process of writing and reviewing the contributions will take place in three stages.

First, authors are asked to deliver an abstract type document with their work proposal and presentation at the symposium (see key date “Abstract submission”).

It must be clearly indicated in the text if it is a contribution from industry or academia. The document must follow the established template, but it is only necessary to include the title, the summary section and the keywords, without the need for any references. To ensure peer review anonymity, omit authors and affiliation. Approximate size, 500 words.

These abstracts will be reviewed by the scientific committee (see key date “Abstract acceptance notice”).

Second, from this review process, those accepted contributions are invited to be presented during the symposium. Then, the authors are also invited to develop their summary in the form of an article, to be published in the proceedings of the symposium (see key date “Submission of work”).

The nature and structure of the document may vary depending on its nature, coming from industry or academia. In the first case, a technical report type format is expected, based on own experience, and related to the thematic areas of the symposium. In the second case, studies are expected, whether qualitative or quantitative, always in accordance with the standards of scientific writing. In either case, they must strictly follow the established template, with a size of between 5 and 8 pages (approx. 380-400 words per page). The name and affiliation of the authors must be included.

Although this event does not require any payment registration from all attendees (it is free), authors of accepted papers will be required to confirm their attendance in advance after submitting their paper (see key date “Registration deadline”).

These articles will be submitted and reviewed quickly, just to ensure that they follow the expected format and to offer a little feedback, or suggestions for improvement, in the writing (see key date “Work Review Notice”).

And third, once this feedback is received, the authors will apply it to their work and send the final version, in order to be published in the proceedings (see key date “Sending the final work”).
