Submission of contributions

We solicit the following types of papers:

  • Regular papers, with original research contributions;
  • Short papers, with original work in progress or with proposals of new ideas and emerging challenges;
  • Tool papers, on tools that support formal techniques for software modeling, system design, and verification.

Submissions must adhere to the LNCS format . Regular papers should not exceed 18 pages (excluding bibliography of maximum 2 pages). Short and tool papers should not exceed 10 pages.

Submissions must not have been published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All submissions will be judged on the basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the conference.

Each paper submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the Programme Committee. All contributions to ICTAC 2019 have to be submitted electronically in PDF format via Easy Chair and have to follow the Springer LNCS paper format. One author of each accepted paper must attend the conference to present it, having paid the regular registration fee.

The ICTAC committee will evaluate and select the best paper award winner. The winner will receive a cash award.

Authors of the best contributions will be invited to submit a revised and extended version to a special issue, to be published in Elsevier's Theoretical Computer Science (pending).
