Camera-ready versions of accepted papers must be submitted through Easychair (select the “add of update files” options in the author menu) at the following submission page:

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use available proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their camera ready papers. Please note that, if necessary, it is possible to submit manuscripts that exceed the limit set for regular and short papers by paying an additional fee (50 euros for 2 extra pages). Interested authors are invited to contact the Conference organizers in order to have this additional fee included in the registration fee.

For camera-ready submission, it is required that the authors submit both the final PDF file and the source files (LaTeX files with all the associated style files, special fonts and eps files, or Word or rtf files). For papers prepared using LaTeX, authors should also supply the underlying bib file for the references.

When submitting a paper, please ensure one or more (maximum two) corresponding authors have been clearly marked in the header, and their email addresses have been included. By the way, Springer encourages the inclusion of all of the authors’ email addresses and ORCIDs in the header, but the email address of the corresponding author is mandatory.

In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form through which the copyright of their paper is transferred to Springer (please note that digital signatures are not currently accepted by Springer). The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.


Please fill and sign the form, and make sure to upload it on Easychair together with the final PDF and source files of the manuscript by October 10th, 2020.


The proceedings of the conference will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science series, and therefore exported to all major indexing databases as ISI (Web of Science), Scopus, DBLP, ACM Digital Library, etc.

IFIP-ICTSS 2020 is supported by IFIP and Springer.  Authors will need to sign a copyright transfer form to transfer usage rights on their papers to IFIP and Springer.


At least one author for each accepted paper should register and attend IFIP-ICTSS 2020 to have the paper published in the proceedings. Registration deadline and related information are available in the Registration page.
