Please note that:

  1. Camera-ready papers should NOT have page numbers. All numbering will be done by the proceedings editor.
  2. The page limit is strict and final:
    • Research and Industry Full Papers: 12 pages
    • Demonstration Papers: 4 pages
  3. Submissions should be identifiable through the filename convention: ADC15_PaperType_XX.pdf. Here, the PaperType is research, industry, or demo, and XX is the paper number assigned to your submission by EasyChair (e.g.: a research paper with ID 26 should be named ADC15_research_26.pdf)
  4. Download and fill the Copyright form.

    Download Consent to Publish Lecture Notes in Computer Science copyright form pdf 1.27mb

    The file has to be named copyright_XX.pdf (e.g. copyright_26.pdf). Camera-ready paper must be accompanied by a signed copyright form. Please note that digital signatures are not accepted and the form needs to be signed in ink and then scanned.

    1. Camera-ready paper (ADC15_PaperType_XX.pdf file).
    2. Completed copyright form (copyright_XX.pdf).
    3. A readme giving the name and email address of the contact author (readme_XX.xml).
    4. The folder containing source files (source_XX).
