Instructions for Authors of Accepted Papers

Please revise your paper carefully according to the comments of the reviewers. Papers MUST BE formatted according to the guidelines of Springer Soft Computing Series.Failure to do so may result in the exclusion of your paper from the proceedings.

Please read the authors' instructions carefully before preparing your papers. Each paper is allowed to have 12 pages in the final camera-ready copy. At least one full paying author of each accepted paper must register for the conference before the deadline (January 05, 2014). Please note that this is a firm deadline to complete your registration - no further extensions will be given.

Call for Papers

SIRS invites submissions containing original ideas that are relevant to the scope of the Symposium. Both full research reports and work-in-progress reports are welcome. There will be both oral and poster sessions.

Special sessions dedicated to the topics related to SIRS-2014 are also envisaged: researchers interested in organizing a special session are invited to contact Symposium organizers.

Authors should submit their papers online. We use EDAS system for submission of papers and review process. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EDAS to log on. Detailed usage instruction on EDAS can be found here. The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format.

All papers must be formatted according to the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing Series Springer template. This template can be downloaded here:

Paper Length: 12 pages maximum

All submitted papers will be subjected to a "similarity test" by EDAS paper similarity checker. Papers achieving a high similarity score will be examined and those that are deemed unacceptable will be rejected/withdrawn without a formal review.

All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability. Acceptance of papers will be communicated to authors by email. All the accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. At least one full paying author of each accepted paper must register for the Conference before the indicated deadline.

The Proceedings of SIRS-2014 will be published by Springer as a special volume in the prestigious Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing (Springer) Series and included in the SpringerLink digital library.
