Authors are requested to submit PDF files of their manuscripts using the paper submission system.

Paper Submission Site (EasyChair)

We distinguish between the following categories of submissions:

  • Long Research Papers are reserved for reports on mature research results. The expected length of a long paper should be in the range of 8-12 pages, including references.
  • Short Research Papers should be in the range of 4-6 pages, including references. Authors may choose this category if they wish to report on smaller case studies or ongoing but interesting and original research efforts.
  • Position Papers deal with novel research ideas or view-points which describe trends or fruitful starting points for future research and elicit discussion and are not much researched. They should be 2 pages long, excluding references.
  • Demo Submissions - System Papers: Authors who wish to demonstrate their system may choose this category and provide a description of their system and demo. System papers should not exceed 6 pages in total.

IWSDS 2016 requires that all authors wishing to present a paper take into account: 

  • The paper is substantially original and will not be submitted to any other conference or journal during the IWSDS 2016 review period.
  • The paper does not contain any plagiarism.
  • The paper will be presented by one of the authors in-person at the conference site according to the schedule published. Any paper accepted in the technical program, but not presented on-site will be withdrawn from the official conference proceedings.
