Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel for consideration of any other conference or workshop with proceedings. Submissions should be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgement or obvious references. All submissions must follow the original LNCS format (http://www.springeronline.com/lncs) with a page limit of 16 pages (excl. bibliography and appendix) for the main part (reviewers are not required to read beyond this limit) and 30 pages in total. Please number the pages in submissions. The total length of the final versions for Springer's LNCS is at most 18 pages. Committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them. At least one author of each accepted paper must register with the conference and present the paper. Submissions must be submitted electronically in PDF format, and the submission procedure and the submission link are announced at the web page. Submissions not meeting the submission guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. It is strongly encouraged that submissions be processed in LaTeX.
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference and must make a full version of their paper available online. Any paper co-authored by at least one full-time student who will present the paper at the conference is eligible for the best student paper award (the eligibility will be clarified with authors of accepted papers following the notification). Papers should be submitted electronically through EasyChair. https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=acns2017
