Paper Submission

This year, we invite papers in multiple categories.

Authors Resources

Papers must be written in English and submitted in the Springer Verlag LNCS Latex or Word style in PDF format, via EasyChair. 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.
