Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ instructions and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form, which can be found here . The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made. Please complete the Consent-to-Publish form and send it via email to the conference chairs Denis Dennehy ([email protected]) and Anastasia Griva ([email protected])

If you or any of the authors contributing to I3E 2021 are interested in Open Access or Open Choice, please refer to our webpage for prices and additional information. We would need the invoicing address and the CC-BY Consent-to-Publish forms at the same time as the files for the publication.

To ensure a double-blind review process make sure that your names and affiliations are NOT listed in the manuscript submitted for review. However, you should include ALL cited references in the submission’s references section to allow reviewers for cross-checking references (including your self-cited own prior work!).

We highly encourage authors to include their ORCID in their accepted manuscript.

By submitting a paper, authors implicitly agree that at least one of them will register to the conference and present the paper. It is expected that at least one author will register for each accepted paper.
