Paper Formatting Instructions

Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere, should be written in English language and could be for Full papers (with a maximum of 12 pages) or Short papers (with a maximum of 6 pages).

Full papers should be mainly focused on research, applications or systems describing results that contribute to advances in state-of-the-art.

Short papers should be mainly focused on work-in-progress, achievements of initial research, projects in early stages of development, case studies, etc.

Manuscripts must respect the instructions in the Manuscript Formatting and Templates page available below :

Submission platform & Reviewing

Paper submission should be processed via EDAS platform, via the link :

Regular and short papers must be submitted explicitly to one of four distinct tracks. Papers in this category will be assigned a shorter time for presentation during the conference.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by experts in the fields based on the criteria of technical merit, readability, relevance and originality. At least three review reports will be produced for each submitted paper.


  • At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference.
  • Only registered papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
  • Accepted and registered papers will be published in the ACOSIS 2019 conference proceedings. It is planned to publish the proceedings with Springer in their Communications in Computer and Information Science series (final approval pending). CCIS is abstracted/indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, Scopus. CCIS volumes are also submitted for the inclusion in ISI Proceedings.
  • Papers of a particular merit may be recommended for special issues in international journals.
