Important Dates

Paper Submission and Publication

Papers of up to 12 pages may be submitted in PDF or Postscript format. Papers need to be formatted using the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science style (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). The submission is to be done via EasyChair.

All papers will be judged based on their technical merits, originality, relevance to areas of interest, and presentation clarity. Papers should describe original work that has not been published before, is not under review elsewhere, and will not be submitted elsewhere during CLA 2015’s review period.

Accepted papers will be published in conference proceedings (with ISBN), available at the conference (printed) and at CEUR Workshop Proceedings and CLA Homepage (online).

Selected papers accepted to CLA 2015 will be invited to further revise and extend their work in a special issue of a well-established journal (name will come).
