Conference Paper Submission

The paper submission is handled by the JEMS system, accessible from the AIMS 2017 Web page and available at https://submissoes.sbc.org.br/aims2017. Authors can submit two types of papers:

Full papers are expected to report substantial research results relevant for the subjects listed in the conference topics. The first author of the submitted paper must be a junior researcher or Ph.D. student. Only original and full papers that have not been published or submitted for publication else-where can be submitted. Each submission must be written in English and are limited to 14 pages, including all references and figures/tables, in the LNCS paper format. Papers exceeding 14 pages, multiple submissions, and self-plagiarized papers will be rejected without further review.

Ph.D. Research Proposals are short papers describing the current state of the student’s research. The paper needs to include a clear description of the research problem and the chosen approach, argue why the problem is hard and the approach novel, and it has to outline the results achieved to date. Specific, low-level technical details are to be avoided. Papers should have no more than two (in exceptional cases three) authors: the student and one or two advisors. Each submission must be written in English and has to be limited to 5 pages, including all references and figures/tables, in the LNCS paper format.

Best Paper Award

The program committee will select one paper for the Best Paper Award (all regular papers are eligible). The winner will be presented at the conference.
