There will be two types of submissions:

a) Regular papers

They should be of at most 12 pages, including front matter and bibliography, in LNCS style.

Simultaneous submissions to other conferences with published proceedings or journals are not allowed.

Accepted regular papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series in a post-conference proceedings volume. The authors will have to prepare their camera-ready version two weeks after the end of ISCO 2012.

b) Short papers

They should be of at most 4 pages (including front matter and bibliography) with no optional appendix. Accepted short papers will be included in a volume of local proceedings.
