Format

All papers must be formatted according to the AISC template, with a maximum length of 10 pages, including figures and references:

Submission

All proposed papers must be submitted in electronic form (PDF format) using the PACBB conference management system.

Review process

PAAMS welcomes the submission of application papers with preference to the topics listed in the call for papers. All submitted papers will undergo a thorough review process; each paper will be refereed by at least three experts in the field based on relevance, originality, significance, quality and clarity.

The papers must consist of original, relevant and previously unpublished sound research results related to any of the topics of the conference

Publication

Accepted papers will be included in PACBB Proceedings. At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend the symposium to present the paper in order to include the paper in the conference proceedings.

Accepted papers will be published by Springer Verlag in the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing series.
