Submission format: Papers are to be submitted electronically, following the guidelines available on the conference web page. Authors unable to submit electronically should contact the program chair to receive instructions. Each submission must be in English, in PDF format, and begin with a cover page including:
(1) the title,
(2) the names and affiliations of all authors,
(3) contact author’s email, address and telephone number,
(4) a brief, one paragraph abstract of the paper,
(5) indication whether the paper is a regular submission, or an entrepreneurship pitch submission or a student paper submission. The authors of the entrepreneurship pitch track please note that the submissions will not be NDA protected.

A regular submission must not exceed 15 (LNCS formatted) single-column pages (excluding cover page and references). Additional necessary details may be included in a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the program committee. An entrepreneurship pitch submission must not exceed 6 pages Powerpoint or PDF abstract. A student paper submission must not exceed 3 single-column pages. Those submissions that are accepted will be gathered in a Technical Report of FCCS. All submissions must use LNCS format. Any submission deviating from these guidelines will be rejected without consideration of its merit.
It is recommended that a regular submission begin with a succinct statement of the problem or the issue being addressed, a summary of the main results or conclusions, a brief explanation of their significance, a brief statement of the key ideas, and a comparison with related work, all tailored to a non-specialist. Technical development of the work, directed to the specialist, should follow. Papers outside of the conference scope will be rejected without review. If requested by the authors on the cover page, a regular submission can also be considered for the entrepreneurship pitch track. This will not affect consideration of the paper for a regular presentation. Regular papers will be included in the Springer LNCS conference proceedings. Extended and revised versions of selected papers will be considered for a special issue of a journal.

Proceedings will be published in Springer's LNCS, Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
