LONG AND SHORT PAPERS
Contributions can be long (12 pages) or short papers (6 pages). The program committee will decide, based on the reviews, whether to consider the submitted papers for oral presentation or for poster/demo presentation. Papers accepted as oral presentations will be included in the Springer book of proceedings. Papers accepted as posters or demos and doctoral consortium abstracts will be published in adjunct proceedings with different ISBN number and publisher.
All papers must present original, innovative, and forward-looking research and are to be submitted through https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=symbiotic2016. All submission files must be anonymized in order to have a double blind review process. Authors info and acknowledgments will be inserted later on the camera ready versions of accepted papers. PhD students participating in the Doctoral Consortium (see below) can also submit their work as a long/short paper, if properly extended.
The Doctoral Consortium (DC) is a special session of the conference where a limited number of PhD students in the early phases of their research can receive advice in a constructive and informal atmosphere. Students present and discuss their research with other PhD students and a panel of established researchers. Students interested in participating in the Doctoral Consortium should submit a 2-page abstract in Springer LNCS format but without the typical sections of a paper submission; it is important to describe research questions, position with respect to the state of the art, research plans and methodology, ideas, and results achieved so far. The two-page limit does not include references. Accepted abstracts will be included in the adjunct conference proceedings. Candidates who have made some progress, but who are still in time in their research to make changes will be preferred.
PhD students participating in the DC can also submit their work as a long/short paper, if properly extended.
A best paper award will be granted to one of the works presented at the conference. Among all doctoral projects presented in the consortium, one will be selected as Best DC paper.
All submissions need to follow the Springer formatting guidelines.
