OPEN ACCESS PUBLICATION
All accepted research papers will be published in the Springer‘s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS] series in Gold Open Access.
Gold OA makes the final version of a research paper freely and permanently accessible for everyone, immediately after publication. Paper submissions are required to be within 18 pages in LNCS style. For the camera-ready version, authors are automatically granted one extra page to incorporate reviewer comments.
Volumes published as part of the LNCS series are made available to the following indexing services: Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI), part of Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science, EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases), ACM Digital Library, DBLP, Google Scholar, IO-Port, MathSciNet, Scopus, Zentralblatt MATH.]
PRESENTATION SLIDES FOR ATTENDEES
The ISC organizers will make the presentation slides available online a week after the event, provided as PDF files. ISC 2020 attendees will receive an e-mail with the access link.
