Paper Submission and Publications

Original papers must be submitted in PDF format here.

The material submitted for presentation at the workshop must be original, not published or being considered elsewhere. The working language is English. The papers are limited to 8 pages formatted in the Springer Book format for "Studies in Computational Intelligence" according to the instructions given at http://www.springer.com/series/8393, section Instructions for Authors (Multiauthor Word 2003/2007 Templates).

All papers duly presented at the Workshop will be included in the SOHOMA'15 post conference Proceedings publication in special issue of Springer series "Studies in Computational Intelligence".

In addition to the indexed edition of the proceedings in a Springer book, two special issues in high quality and well established journals (Elsevier Computer in Industry and Springer Journal of Intelligent Manufacturing) will be organized just after the Sohoma workshop. This selection will be based upon the quality of the papers edited in the Springer proceedings, the quality of the oral presentations as well as the originality/novelty/consistency of the works. Extended papers will be blind-reviewed, which does not mean their automatic acceptance.
