The submission of abstracts and papers is done via Easychair

The final version of accepted papers needs to follow the LNCS format (check Guidelines) therefore it is advisable to adopt this format from the beginning.

Proceedings book is expected to be published by Springer under the IFIP AICT series.

Papers shall be submitted in MS-Word, without any identification of authors (for double-blinded evaluation).

Evaluation of papers is based on the full text, considering the original scientific and technological contribution. Each paper will be evaluated by three members of the International Program Committee through a double-blinded process. However, prospective authors should submit a short abstract to the conference in advance, in order to check if the proposed topic fits within the conference scope.

IMPORTANT: Submissions to PRO-VE shall be made under the assumption that if the paper is accepted, then at least one author needs to be registered for the paper (one registration per paper) and the paper will be presented at the conference. Following Springer requirements, all papers will be checked regarding plagiarism and self-plagiarism with iThenticate tool.

Camera ready submission of accepted papers must be accompanied by the signed Copyright Transfer Form.
