Final Paper Submission

The final paper and the signed copyright form are due on September 25, 2018. This is a firm deadline for the production of the proceedings.

FINAL PAPER PREPARATION: The page limit is 12 pages. The page limit is strict. Please follow strictly the author instructions of Springer-Verlag when preparing the final version:

Submissions should be identifiable through the filename convention: AAIM18_XXX.pdf. Here, XXX is the paper number assigned to your submission by EasyChair (e.g.: paper with ID 26 should be named AAIM2018_26.pdf)

Note that wrong format of the paper or delay to submit the camera ready version will result in excluding your paper from the proceeding.

Our publisher has recently introduced an extra control loop: once data processing is finished, they will contact all corresponding authors and ask them  to check their papers. We expect this to happen shortly before the printing of the proceedings. At that time your quick interaction with Springer-Verlag will be greatly appreciated.
