All submissions will be reviewed by members of the international scientific committee through a double-blind review process.

There will be two publication pathways available:

    • Pathway 1: Double blind reviewed full papers (Length: 6000 words) A Full Paper submission for Pathway 1 does not require an abstract submission before hand. Full papers in Pathway 1 will be peer-reviewed and marked accordingly in the conference proceedings.
    • Pathway 2: Articles selected based on double-blind reviewed extended abstracts (Length: 1000-1500 words) Authors whose extended abstracts are accepted will be invited to submit a full paper (length: 3000 – 6000 words) in submission Pathway 2. The full paper in Pathway 2 will not be peer-reviewed. The full paper will be marked “accepted based on double-blind reviewed extended abstract” in the conference proceedings.

At least one author per accepted paper must be registered as participant and present their work in person at the conference. One author can at most present two papers.

Submissions must be prepared according to the templates and technical instructions of Springer’s proceedings series. Please carefully read the corresponding guidelines and prepare your paper accordingly using the macros available in the provided template. This includes the font type and size, spacing, margins, and referencing style. Failure to follow these guidelines may result in rejection of the paper.
