Publication of LNCS Proceedings during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Crisis
In the current situation of the coronavirus outbreak, we are facing a global health crisis forcing us all to adapt our private lives as well as our business practices.
We are fully aware of the challenges created by these unprecedented circumstances as conferences all over the world are being held virtually or postponed to ensure the welfare of the community.
Therefore, we are committed to publishing proceedings even for conferences that will not be taking place. To best support conference organizers during this crisis, we would like to kindly ask them to let us know whether the conference is to be cancelled, held virtually, or postponed until later this year.
By making the proceedings easily accessible for participants, organizers can contribute to the core function of academic conferences: widely distributing new research. Thus we encourage organizers to prominently display the download link to the proceedings on their conference websites. Examples like the IDA 2020 website and IDA 2020 program page can easily be implemented as it is possible to link to the whole proceedings volume as well as to individual papers through SpringerLink (https://link.springer.com).
Temporary free access to the online version of the proceedings can be provided for registered conference participants. Conference organizers should inform us when uploading the files if they are interested in this option.
If you have further questions or concerns, please contact us per email: firstname.lastname@example.org
New LNCS Challenges subline
The core operating principles of these subline's publications revolve around a detailed description of the problem posed, along with its scientific relevance, as well as transparent and impartial evaluation procedures of the competing approaches. Publication of associated datasets and source code is strongly encouraged, in order to provide a clear reproducibility check and encourage further tests and discussions on the subject within the scientific community.
Data Publishing in Computer Proceedings
If your proceedings have been accepted for publication in one of our proceedings series, a branded area can be set up for your conference within Springer Nature’s figshare repository. Any data/software used/developed in the papers published in the proceedings may be uploaded to this branded area and given a permanent DOI. The papers on SpringerLink link to the data on figshare and vice versa.
