Paper Submission Instructions

The conference encourages the submission of high quality research papers that have not been previously published and are not under review for another conference or journal. Submissions are welcomed in any of the topic areas indicated on our Website.

Submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the international program committee on the basis of the originality of the research presented, the quality of the theoretical contribution made by the research, the validity and robustness of the methodology chosen, the significance of the results presented and the overall contribution to our understanding of context.

Papers for SPIRE 2007 should not exceed ten (10) pages including references, figures, and tables. They must be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines and submitted electronically using the Submission Form. The submission deadline is on April 23rd, 2007.

All accepted research papers will be published in the conference proceedings by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Authors of accepted papers will be asked to prepare the final version of their paper in the LNCS style; we advise authors to use this style for initial submissions. Templates are available on the Springer Website.


Acceptance and rejection notices will be sent to authors on June 18, 2007.
