Paper Submission

Paper Format

Please prepare your paper in English using the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) template, which is available here. Papers must be submitted in PDF.

Types of Submissions

When submitting a paper to LION8, authors are required to select one of the following three types of papers:
  • Long paper: original novel and unpublished work (max. 15 pages in LNCS format);
  • Short paper: an extended abstract of novel work (max. 4 pages in LNCS format);
  • Work for oral presentation only (no page restriction; any format). For example, work already published elsewhere, which is relevant and which may solicit fruitful discussion at the conference.

Submission System

All papers must be submitted using EasyChair. The link can be found here.

When submitting a paper, authors will be asked to choose the general track or any of the special sessions organized within the conference:

  1. General track;
  2. Special sessions.

The deadline for ALL the types of submissions and tracks is: November 22, 2013.


All accepted papers (both long and short) will be published in a volume of the series on Lecture Notes in Computer Science from Springer after the conference. Instructions for preparing and submitting the final versions of all accepted papers will be available later on.
