All papers accepted for oral presentation will be published by Springer in Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI). All papers accepted for poster session will be published in an IEEE CS Press volume (indexed in EI and ISI Proceedings) and a special issue of the journal Research in Computing Science.

Submissions are to be original research papers not published elsewhere and not submitted for review for another conference or journal. Submitted papers should strictly follow the LNCS/LNAI format guidelines (see also here) and not exceed 11 pages in this format (extra pages are allowed for small additional fee).

Double blind review policy: the review procedure is double blind. Thus the papers submitted for review must not contain the authors' names or affiliations, explicit auto-references (i.e., avoid expressions like "in [1] we show" -- consider "in [1] it is shown"), or any other information that can reveal the identity of the authors. This information is to be restored in the camera-ready version upon acceptance.

Submissions are received only online through the submission page:

We reserve the right to reject without review papers that do not follow the formatting guidelines, reveal the authors' identity, or otherwise do not meet the requirements.

The prices are in US dollars (equivalent in Mexico pesos can be paid). The basic fee includes the right to publish one paper (LNAI, IEEE, or RCS) within the page limit, one copy of the proceedings, one banquet ticket, and one ticket for the tours.

Authors of accepted papers: The registration form and payment proof must arrive to the organizers before the deadline in order for the paper to be published. A separate fee per each paper is to be paid: if you have n papers, please pay the fee n times unless your co-authors register independently.
