paper submission guidelines


Submissions should present original, unpublished work that is not concurrently under submission to another venue with proceedings or a journal. Simultaneous submission, submission of  previously published work, and plagiarism constitute dishonesty or fraud. Submissions found to be in violation of this policy will be subject to rejection without review, and further  appropriate actions may also be taken.


Submissions must be a total of 20 pages for full papers and 10 pages for short papers, including all references and appendices. Submissions must be in English, and should be prepared  according to the format of the Springer LNCS series. Guidelines and templates for manuscript preparation can be found at Springer's Information for LNCS Authors site. Please use the   instructions for "Proceedings and Other Multi-Author Volumes" for your authoring system.

Submissions must be made in PDF format, and should render correctly in a recent version of Adobe Reader. Submissions should be self-contained — i.e., they should not refer to external images or fonts — and should be legible when printed in black and white.


Submissions must be made via the DIMVA 2012 submission page. Papers may be submitted at any time until the submission deadline.
