Paper submission

Electronic paper submissions will be accepted in two categories: Full and short papers. Full papers have a length of up to 16 pages and short papers have a length of up to 8 pages including references. Full and short papers appear in the proceedings which will be published by Springer as part of their Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series (www.springer.com/lncs).

We use a double-blind reviewing process. Please do not include the author’s name and affiliation or any other type of information that may disclose the authors in the submitted paper itself. Citations to your own relevant work should not be anonymous, but rather should be done without identifying yourself as the author. The program committee may suggest changes in the format and/or the contents of the paper, including the category of the paper based on the received reviews. In this case, a paper will be conditionally accepted. The program co-chairs will decide on the final acceptance or rejection based on a second analysis of the revised paper.

Submission need to be prepared using the Springer LNCS template. You can find LaTeX and Word versions of the template as well as a direct link to the scientific authoring platform Overleaf here: https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines

Papers should be submitted using the following EasyChair link until the submission deadline: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=collabtech2020


Poster submission

Poster abstracts have a maximum length of 4 pages including references. They will be made available as adjunct proceedings online.
