Computational Science is a main pillar of most of the present research,
industrial and commercial activities and plays a unique role in exploiting
ICT innovative technologies.

The ICCSA Conference offers a real opportunity to bring together scientists
of different disciplines, discuss new issues, tackle complex problems and
find advanced solutions breeding new trends in Computational Science.

Submitted papers will be subject to stringent peer review by at least three
experts and carefully evaluated based on originality, significance,
technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. Accepted papers will appear
in the Conference proceedings to be published by Springer-Verlag in Lecture
Notes for Computer Science and, as post-Conference proceedings, Conference
Publishing System (CPS). The authors of a selected number of top quality
papers will be requested to extend their papers for further review and
publication as special issues in highly recognized international journals.

ICCSA 2019 accepts paper submission in the following categories: main
Conference theme papers and Workshop papers . The details for each paper
submission category can be found at the URL

Paper Submission
----------------

To submit a paper, please connect to the Submission site from the link
available at the ICCSA 2019 web site: https://ess.iccsa.org.
Only papers submitted through the electronic system and strictly adhering to
the relevant format will be considered for reviewing and publication.
The submission may fall into the following five categories: Main Conference
Theme Papers (LNCS), Special Session/Workshop Papers (LNCS or CPS), Short
Papers (LNCS), and PHD Showcase Papers (CPS).

MAIN CONFERENCE THEME PAPERS (LNCS)
The submitted paper must be camera-ready, between 10 and 16 pages long and
formatted according to the LNCS rules. Please consult the URL
http://www.iccsa.org/instructions-for-authors for formatting information and
templates.


WORKSHOPS PAPERS (LNCS or CPS)
The submitted paper must be between 10 to 16 pages long for LNCS
publication, or 7 to 11 pages for CPS publication (in such case as
post-conference proceedings), and should be formatted according to the LNCS
or CPS rules, respectively.
Please consult the URL http://www.iccsa.org/instructions-for-authors for
formatting information and templates.

SHORT PAPERS (LNCS)
Reporting preliminary results of ongoing research. The submitted paper must
be between 7 and 9 pages long formatted according to LNCS rules. The Short
Papers will be presented during the conference and will be published by
LNCS.

PHD SHOWCASE PAPERS (CPS)
Reporting ongoing research already achieving significant results and
primarily carried out by Ph.D. students and junior researchers. The
submitted paper must be between 6 to 8 pages long formatted according to CPS
rules. The PHD Showcase Papers will be presented during the conference and

Each paper must deal with original and unpublished work, not submitted for
publication elsewhere (copyright problems fall entirely under responsibility
of the authors). Each paper will be reviewed by at least three experts in
the relevant field (acceptance rate was 28% in 2005, 26% in 2006 and 28% in
2007, 29% in 2008, 30% in 2009, 29% in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 30% in 2013,

quality contributions.

When a paper is accepted at least one of the authors has to register to the
conference and deliver the related talk. Failure to do so shall lead to
rejection of the application to attend next year conference and the
exclusion of the paper for the current year proceedings.

acceptance, authors agree to transfer copyright on the accepted paper to
ICCSA, and one of the authors will register the paper and present the paper
at the event.

No paper withdrawals can be accepted after Conference pre-registration date
or within three months of the actual event, whichever date comes first.
Paper withdrawal request can be only accepted in writing through email,
letter or fax to conference organizers.
