Submission Instructions for Accepted Papers

If your paper has been accepted for the ASSURE 2018 Program, please follow ALL the instructions below, when preparing your final, camera-ready paper for the proceedings.


The final paper and the signed copyright form are due on June 21, 2018. This is a firm deadline for the production of the proceedings.


Include acknowledgements of the support your work/project has received, as appropriate and if applicable, at the end of the paper.

Final Paper Submission

Submit your final, camera-ready paper using your EasyChair author account, for inclusion into the Workshop Proceedings. After you have logged in, select the Proceedings Author role to be directed to the submission page. Springer reserves the right to reformat your paper to meet their print and digital publication requirements. Consequently, you will need to submit all the source files associated with your paper. Follow the instructions after logging in, to upload two files:

  1. either a zipped file containing all your LaTeX sources or a Word file in the RTF format, and
  2. a PDF version of your camera-ready paper.
Plagiarism, self-plagiarism, and publication in multiple venues are not permitted.

Copyright Release

Your paper will not be published in the proceedings unless a completed and signed copyright transfer form has been received.

  • Authors must fill and sign the Springer "Consent to Publish" copyright release form using the following information:
    • Title of the Book or Conference Name: Computer Safety, Reliability and Security - SAFECOMP 2018 Workshops - ASSURE, DECSoS, SASSUR, STRIVE, and WAISE.
    • Volume Editor(s): Barbara Gallina, Amund Skavhaug, Erwin Schoitsch, and Friedemann Bitsch.
  • One author may sign on behalf of all authors.
  • Springer does not accept digital signatures. Please physically sign the form, scan, and email it in PDF or any standard acceptable image format, to the SAFECOMP 2018 Publication Chair by the deadline above.
  • Alternatively, upload the signed, and completed form via EasyChair using your author account.

Corresponding Authors

Please nominate a corresponding author, whose name and email address must be included in the copyright release form. If sending the copyright release form by email, please include the corresponding author's name and email address in the email. This author will be responsible for checking the pre-print proof of the final version of your paper that Springer will prepare.

Pre-print Checking

The 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 within 72 hours. 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.

Formatting and Page Limits

Papers should strictly conform to the LNCS paper formatting guidelines. Please do not change the spacing and dimensions associated with the paper template files. Please ensure that your paper meets the page limits for your paper type. Page limits are strict.

  • Regular research/practice papers: Up to 10 pages including figures, references, and appendices.
  • Tools papers: Up to 10 pages, including figures, references, and appendices.
  • Position papers: 6 pages including figures, references, and any appendices.
