Submission information

Follow the information in this page for a correct CP submission.

Sister Journals and Conferences Track

Submission to the Sister Journals and Conferences Track is via EasyChair.

Submission and paper format

Paper submission is via EasyChair (CP 2017).

There are two paper categories: long papers (15 LNCS pages + references) and short papers (8 LNCS pages + references). Short papers are of the same status as long papers: they will be reviewed to the same standards of quality as full papers and are eligible for the best paper prizes.

Submission of the paper should be in the form of a PDF file following Springer’s LNCS formatting guidelines for their submission. Submissions exceeding the respective page limit or not formatted according to Springer LNCS style will be rejected without review.

Multiple submission

Authors must carefully select the track that their paper is submitted to. Submissions to multiple tracks are not allowed (see below). In rare circumstances, in the best interest of a submission, the Program Chair may move a submission to another track.

Multiple submission is not allowed. Submissions should not have appeared in, be accepted for, or be under review for another track, another peer-reviewed conference or journal.

Submissions which have appeared at workshops or other meetings of lower status than a conference are allowed, as are submissions which have only appeared in conferences in highly shortened form (e.g., abstracts). Reviewers are instructed that contributions must be treated as new if they have only appeared in paper(s) by the same authors in acceptable outlets (as defined by the previous point). The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. They will contain the papers accepted in the technical and thematic tracks, and the abstracts of invited talks, abstracts of papers accepted in the journal publication fast track and journal-first and sister conference paper track.


  • April 27, 2017 Abstract submission (mandatory)
  • April 30, 2017 Paper submission

Reviewing process

The reviewing is double blind: the authors and the reviewers are both anonymous to each other. In particular, this means that submissions should not contain author names, affiliations, or links to web sites.


There will be an opportunity for authors to respond to reviewers’ comments before decisions are made.
