  • Short papers (6 pages, CCIS format) presenting ongoing or preliminary research

Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers (maximum 12 pages including figures and references) and short papers (maximum 6 pages including figures and references) of novel research material. Submitted papers should be within the scope of the IWSSIP 2021 conference. All contributions must be of high quality, original, should not have been published elsewhere and should not be submitted for publication elsewhere during the review period or time of the conference.

Papers must be submitted electronically by February 21, 2021 April 10, 2021 (final extended).

Authors of accepted submissions will be asked to register to the Conference and present their work in the form of oral presentation.


For the preparation of the camera-ready papers/files, authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their final papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper (see also below). Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

Presentation with Underline
