    Two Tracks, Conference and Workshop

    As in the previous edition of the conference, two types of contributed presentations will take place in ICITS 2013. The Conference Track will act as a traditional conference, consisting of original papers with published proceedings. The Workshop Track will operate more like an informal workshop, with papers that have appeared elsewhere or that consist of work in progress.


    Conference Track (with proceedings) Submissions to this track must be original papers that have not previously appeared in published form. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and will appear in the conference proceedings, which will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.


    Workshop Track (no proceedings) To encourage presentation of work form a variety of fields, especially those where conference publication is unusual or makes journal publication difficult, “work- shop track” papers are also solicited. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference, but will not appear in the proceedings. Submissions to this track that have previously appeared or are currently submitted elsewhere are acceptable, as long as they first appeared after January 1, 2012. Papers that describe work in progress are also welcome. The same standards of quality will apply to conference and workshop papers.


    It is not possible to submit the same work for consideration in both tracks.
