Paper preparation and submission

The proceedings of ECSQARU 2009 will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science/Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series of Springer. Authors are requested to prepare their papers in the LNCS/LNAI format.

Papers must not exceed 12 pages and must be submitted as PDF through the EasyChair conference system. Papers that are not in the stated format or that exceed the page limit will not be reviewed.

Submitted papers will be evaluated by peer review on the basis of originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition.

All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings. Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend the conference and to make oral presentations about their work. One full registration will cover acceptance of two papers.

Final Paper

The final paper and the signed copyright form are due on April 9, 2009. This is a firm deadline for the production of the proceedings.

In the preparation of the final paper, please note that:

  • final versions of accepted papers must strictly adhere to the Springer LNCS/LNAI format;
  • the page limit of 12 pages is strict: papers longer than 12 pages will be rejected;
  • the content of the papers must be refined according to the comments and the suggestions provided by the reviewers;
  • figures will be printed in black and white: if you send colored figures, please make sure that they are also legible in black and white;
  • your references must be complete and adhere to Springer style;
  • Springer prefers that authors' names in headers of papers are written out in full.

Please submit the files belonging to your final paper using your EasyChair author account. Follow the instructions after the login for uploading three files:

  • either a zipped file containing all your LaTeX sources or a Word file in the RTF format,
  • a PDF version of your camera-ready paper,
  • your signed copyright form.

Springer has recently introduced an extra control loop: once data processing is finished, corresponding authors will receive an email (from an Indian address) containing the final pdf files from Springer, and will be asked to check their papers. We expect this to happen shortly before the printing of the proceedings. At that time your quick interaction with Springer will be greatly appreciated.

Note that at least one author has to register with payment by April 9, 2009. One full registration will cover acceptance of two papers (by the same author), while one student registration will cover acceptance of one paper.
