WiP papers must clearly identify the goals of the work and the technical approach, and include enough initial development to demonstrate viability of the approach. The title must be prefixed with "WiP:" to clearly indicate that the submission is a WiP paper.

Papers must be written in English and submitted in the Springer Verlag LNCS Latex or Word style in PDF format, via this Submission link. The review process is single-blind, meaning that author names will be visible to reviewers. The past proceedings of the conference are published by Springer Verlag as part of their LNCS series. The same tradition will follow. The extended versions of selected and accepted papers will be invited for publication in the Indian Academy of Sciences’ journal-SADHANA. ICISS will also have a best paper award.
