PAPER

A paper submission is suitable for original research that is completed at the time of submission and, regardless of the length of the paper, are self-sufficient scientific contributions. Papers can be full papers (12 pages max., including all) or short papers (6 pages max., including all) in Springer LNCS format, and should describe work that is not presented, published, or simultaneously submitted elsewhere.

Paper submissions can uploaded via this link: https://ocs.springer.com/ocs/home/Persuasive2017

Make sure you follow the LNCS formatting guidelines for your paper: https://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0

Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by the review committee.  When accepted, a camera ready version of the paper must be submitted before its deadline.
