All submitted papers should be in LNCS format. For details, see: http://www.springer.com/east/home/computer/lncs.
There are two categories of submissions:
- Regular papers:
Regular paper submissions should describe original and unpublished work. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with proceedings or submission of previously published material is strictly forbidden. Regular papers should not exceed sixteen (16) pages in LNCS format. Submissions will be accepted in electronic form (pdf), via the easychair portal.
An early email to conference chairs with your intention to submit a paper would be appreciated.
- Tools and experience papers:
Tool submissions should describe a new tool and its features, and demonstrate its effectiveness using experimentation. Tools and experience papers are required to show significant advancements compared with existing tools. Tools and experience papers should not exceed six (6) pages in LNCS format. Tool presentations are expected to include a short demo.
All papers should be submitted through the EasyChair website.
Submission and review policy
Submitted papers will be blind-reviewed by members of the program committee. It is planned for each paper to have at least two reviews. Based on reviewers' recommendations, the program co-chairs and the general chair will make the final decision on acceptance and notify the contact author. Please note that HVC allows submissions by program committee members. It also allows submissions by program and general chairs. To guarantee fairness of the review process in such cases, organizers who are authors of submitted papers will be excluded from the review and the decision process regarding their papers. Other organizers will be appointed to handle their papers. If a paper was co-authored by one of the chairs, the two other chairs will handle that paper. Details of the review process and acceptance decisions will be recorded and kept confidentially to allow auditing and maximize fairness.
As in previous years, the post-conference proceedings will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS).
