Submission and Author Guidelines

Authors are encouraged to submit high quality, original work that has not appeared in, nor is under consideration by, other journals. Full versions of papers which have previously appeared in conference proceedings will also be considered (this should be indicated at the time of submission). Poor English may be a reason not to consider a paper for reviewing.

Submission of Manuscripts

Authors are requested to submit their manuscript as a .pdf file following Springer LNCS format. The links to download templates for both LaTeX and Microsoft Word users are provide below.


Properly formatted papers can be submitted to the journal by emailing them to [email protected]

Layout of the Paper

Each paper must have a heading, full name and address of the author(s), abstract of about 100 words, keywords, the body of the paper, and references. The number of page should be within 10-30. All pages must be numbered. Indicate your e-mail address and the preferred address for correspondence.


Immediately following the abstract, give five to ten keywords (key phrases).


Electronic version in PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is preferred for both LaTeX and Microsoft Word formats.

Referee process

Each submitted paper is assigned to a member of the Editorial Board for handling. The refereeing is done by anonymous reviewers. In case an author wishes to provide a review with his/her identity kept from the reviewers, this should be indicated in the cover letter to the Editor-in-Chief.
