Instructions for Authors

For preparation of papers please follow the instructions for authors available at the Springer LNCS Web page. The length of each paper including figures and references may not exceed 16 pages. All papers must be written in English and submitted in PDF format. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will attend the workshop to present the work.

Paper Submission

Submission deadline for new papers: 2016-06-12
Submissions are via Easychair at

Submission deadline for ECAI-reviewed papers (including full versions of accepted short papers): 2016-06-16
Given the advertised delay in the final notification for the main ECAI conference, we will accept submissions at a later date for papers that have been through the ECAI review process iff they are accompanied by the ECAI reviews. This allows for both revision and reformatting by authors and lighter-touch reviewing by the COIN PC.


Preliminary proceedings will be available before the conference. They will also be distributed to ECAI 2016 registrants in electronic form.
