Submission Details



Submissions must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or conference/workshop with proceedings. Each submission should be at most 16 pages in total in the Springer’s LNCS format. All submissions should be anonymous (i.e., no author names/affiliations and obvious citations). Submissions are to be made to the submission web site:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wistp2018


Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series, and the proceedings will be available at the conference. The camera-ready version of the accepted papers must follow Springer guidelines (a Latex source file will be required).

If a submitted paper is mainly the work of a student author, this paper is eligible for the best student paper award. To participate in this selection process, please add the word "STUDENT" in the affiliation field in the submission form.

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register with the conference and present the paper. For authors presenting multiple papers, one normal registration is valid for up to two papers.

Journal Information Sponsorship



Information will offer to main authors of Best Paper and Best Student Paper to waive the fee for a future publication in the journal.

Main author of accepted papers will receive a 200€ voucher for a future publication in the journal.

Note this offer is not related to an extended version of the presented papers. It can be any article from the main author. This submission will go through the whole reviewing process of the journal which is completely independent to WISTP.
