Paper submission

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Papers must be written in English and must be submitted electronically in PDF format.

The papers that will be selected for presentation at the conference will be included in post-proceedings published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series (prior to publication the papers should be revised according to the review comments). Pre-proceedings will appear at the time of the conference.

Maximum paper length will be 16 printed pages for full papers or 6 pages for short papers, in LNCS style (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference. All paper submissions will be handled through the Easy Chair conference management system: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=crisis2021.
