Types of contributions

  • Regular papers: up to 12 pages in LNCS style. Full original papers, presenting novel results, not appeared or submitted elsewhere.
  • Communications: up to 5 pages in LNCS style. Suitable for extended abstracts of papers already appeared, or submitted, or to be submitted, elsewhere; papers reporting on ongoing researches on which the authors wish to get feedback at ICTCS and possibly intended to be included in future publications; overviews of PhD-theses, research projects, etc…

In case of need, to ease the reviewing process, the authors of regular papers may add an appendix containing further material (or indicate a web site containing longer version of the paper). In any case the reviewers are not required to consider such further material in their evaluation. All contributions must be written in English.

For each accepted contribution, at least one of the authors is required to attend at the conference and present the paper. All accepted contributions (communications and regular papers) will appear in a number of CEUR Workshop Proceedings.

Post-conference issue on Theoretical Computer Science:

Selected papers from ICTCS-2016 will be invited to a special issue of the journal  Theoretical Computer Science, Elsevier. The authors of a selection of the regular papers presented at the conference will be asked to submit an improved version of their papers.
The selection will be determined by considering the outcome of the conference reviewing phase.
The papers submitted for the journal issue should have been significantly revised and extended with respect to the conference versions. A second reviewing process, meeting the high standard of quality of the international journal will select the papers to be accepted for the special issue, among the invited ones.
