Proceedings of the TSD2017 conference form a book published by Springer-Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. The TSD proceedings are regularly indexed by Thomson Reuters (Conference Proceedings Citation Index, formerly ISI).
Authors are invited to submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages (in total, i.e. with all figures, bibliography, etc. included) formatted in the LNCS style (see below). Those accepted will be presented either orally or as posters. The decision about the presentation format will be based upon the recommendation of three reviewers. The authors are asked to submit their papers using the on-line submission interface accessible from the TSD2017 web application (see the SUBMISSION PROCEDURE paragraph below).
Papers submitted to TSD2017 must not be under review by any other conference or publication during the TSD2017 review cycle, and must not be previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere.
As the reviewing is double-blind, the paper should not include the authors' names and/or affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...". Papers that do not conform to the requirements above are subject to be rejected without review.
The authors are strongly encouraged to typeset their papers using LaTeX. The LaTeX format is necessary for the final versions of the papers that will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes series. Authors using a MS Word-compatible software for the final version must use the LNCS template for MS Word and within the submit process ask the Proceedings Editors to convert the paper to LaTeX format. For this service a service-and-license fee of CZK 1500 will be charged automatically.
The paper format for review has to be either PDF or PostScript file with all required fonts included. Upon notification of acceptance, presenters will receive further information on submitting their camera-ready manuscript version and other resources (for detailed instructions on the final paper format see the Springer's document http://www.springer.com/us/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines or Springer Guidelines for Authors of Proceedings). The TSD2017 submission template is available from the link in the next paragraph SUBMISSION TEMPLATE.
Authors are also invited to present actual projects, developed software or interesting material relevant to the topics of the conference. The presenters of the demonstration should provide the abstract not exceeding one page. The demonstration abstracts will not appear in the conference proceedings.
