Submission Format

Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS Format wherever required, as per the track descriptions.

General guidelines for the preparation of proceedings papers could be found on the Springer website.

Papers not strictly following the templates will be excluded from the conference proceedings. The maximum paper length, as defined in the various submission categories, will be automatically enforced by the conference submission system (PCS).

For all tracks, the versions submitted for review must be uploaded in PDF format. Wherever necessary, videos accompanying paper submissions must be in a standard video format playable on a generic movie player.

The official conference language is English, and all submissions must be in English. The Springer LNCS guidelines require the submissions to be preferably in American English.

LaTeX users would benefit by downloading the sample .tex file from Springer and placing it in the working directory.

Authors of accepted submissions must upload together with their final version of the paper, a proceedings copyright form for the inclusion of the paper in the proceedings and a media consent form for allowing the potential taping and broadcasting of their presentation.

Camera-Ready Version

The proceedings of INTERACT 2017 will be published by IFIP-Springer in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). The final camera ready submission must be in PDF format.

Please follow the guidelines below whilst preparing the camera-ready version:

  • Take into account reviewers' comments whilst preparing the camera-ready version of your contribution.
  • Make sure your submission adheres to the Springer LNCS Format. Individual Word templates and LaTeX templates can be downloaded from Springer. Detailed instructions are included in the .zip packages containing the templates.
  • Complete and duly sign the IFIP-Springer Copyright Form, which must be signed by at least one of the authors and sent as a PDF or an image file (JPEG or TIF). The Media Consent Form must also be submitted in the same format.
  • Use the conference submission system (PCS) to upload a zip file containing the duly signed copyright form (IFIP-Springer), the media consent form and the camera ready version in both formats — source file (MS Word) and PDF file at the website no latter than the mentioned camera-ready deadlines.

Important: In order for your paper to appear in the LNCS proceedings, at least one author must be registered at the conference by the camera-ready deadline.
