Paper Submissions 


Authors can decide between two submission types: 10-page papers or abstracts (up to two pages). Accepted and registered 10-page papers will be included in conference proceedings published in Springer’s LNCS and indexed in Web of Science. Accepted and registered abstracts will be made available online by conference organizers. All accepted and registered papers/abstracts will be treated as equally important in the conference program. Authors of presented papers/abstracts will be encouraged to substantially extend and submit their work to Information Sciences. 

Springer’s guidelines and technical instructions for the preparation of contributions can be found visiting the following URL:
Articles should be submitted through the Easychair platform, visiting the following URL:
Authors of 10-page papers must submit a signed copyright form for each paper to be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Please download the form here, fill-in the required information, sign it, and upload it as scanned copy along with the source files of the camera-ready paper to the EasyChair system.

Post-IJCRS-2016 Publications


The authors of 10-page-long papers and 2-page-long abstracts presented in the main track of IJCRS 2016 will be encouraged to substantially extend and submit their work to the journal of Information Sciences (INS); for more information, please visit 
Further reviewing process will be coordinated by one of IJCRS 2016 conference chairs (Dominik Slezak – Associate Editor of INS) according to standard INS procedures. Presenting and gathering feedback at IJCRS 2016 will help in preparing extended materials and influence the next steps of the reviewing process.

INS will particularly welcome extended papers referring to fundamental ideas developed by Professor Zdzislaw Pawlak (1926-2006) and – in this way – commemorating him on his 90-th anniversary of birth and 10-th anniversary of death. However, articles referring to other areas (including topics related to data science, granular computing, knowledge technology and intelligent systems) will be encouraged as well.
