Submission Guidelines

Papers must be original contributions written in English and must be submitted through the 
ICCSA Electronic Submission site as:

Please upload all submissions in LNCS format. Once in the ICCSA Electronic Submission site, you will find a button to submit a new abstract. After the form for personal info, there is bottom-right a dropdown menu where you must select 6th International Workshop on Web-based Collective Evolutionary Systems: models, measures, applications (IWCES) (IMPORTANT!). After submitting the abstract, you should enter again to submit your paper.

To ensure high quality, submitted papers will be carefully peer-reviewed by at least 3 PC members based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. Papers on applications, case studies, and data sets are welcome, as well as master/PhD thesis showcases. Each paper must be original and unpublished work, not submitted for publication elsewhere (copyright problems fall entirely under responsibility of the authors).

Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, if the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors should register and present orally the paper in the conference. Failure to do so shall lead to exclusion of the paper for the proceedings.

Detailed instructions for submission can be found in the ICCSA page of Instructions for Authors. Questions on topics of the submission can be sent to the scientific program committee. Any further question on technical aspects of submission, or inquiry for technical problems can be sent to Osvaldo Gervasi. Please note that the Electronic Submission Site has a separate login access with respect to the registration to the conference.


Accepted papers for IWCES will appear in the conference proceedings to be published by Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) (edited by Springer). In order to be included in the proceedings, at least one of the authors should register to the conference and present the paper (each paper will be submitted to a fee), according to the rules specified in the ICCSA website.


The conference will be held in the 17th International Conference on Computational Science and Applications (ICCSA 2017), on July 3-6, 2017 in the wonderful city of Trieste, Italy.


All questions about submissions should be emailed to Alfredo Milani and Valentina Franzoni .
