INSTRUCTIONS FOR LONG PAPERS
Long papers should present original unpublished work and be at most 15 pages plus references in length, and should be prepared in the format used for the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/ authors.html). These papers will undergo rigorous review. The proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Note: Unlike previous CPAIOR conferences the page limit for long papers is 15 LNCS pages *plus references*.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR SHORT PAPERS
Short papers are also encouraged, limited to 8 LNCS pages plus references and should be prepared with the same format as long papers. (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs). Although containing less material, short papers should describe original unpublished work and will be reviewed to the same criteria of quality as long papers. It is also encouraged to submit short papers about work in progress on ideas that are interesting but for which the practical or theoretical relevance is not yet fully identified. Short papers will be presented at the conference and published in the conference proceedings.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR JOURNAL FAST TRACK
Outstanding submissions to the technicalprogram will be offered the opportunity to be published exclusively through a ‘fast track’process in the Constraint Journal. Authors of these papers can opt to extend their paper from 15 to 20 pages plus references (subject to a minor second round of review) and be accepted_directly_ in the journal by the time of the conference. Invited authors who select to fast track their paper will receive a 1 page extended abstract in the conference proceedings and will be invited to present at the conference on the same ground as any other accepted submission. Fast Track Journal papers should be formatted according to the Journal Guidelines (http://www.springer.com/computer/ai/journal/10601).
Abstracts and papers must be submitted on EasyChair by following this link.
