Types of contributions

For EIS 2010, two types of paper contributions, as well as tool demos, are welcomed.

Type Alpha: New work

Papers presenting new, original work are warmly invited. Submitted papers should not exceed a length of 10 pages. These papers will be reviewed on overall quality and relevance to the conference topics. All accepted papers will be published in full in the proceedings. Submitting a paper of type Alpha is a good opportunity to gather feedback on research in an early stage or on doctoral work.

Type Beta: EIS Highlights

High-quality papers on EIS topics that have been accepted after September 2009 for refereed conferences or journals are explicitly called for. The original contribution can be resubmitted and will be accepted as a compressed contribution for EIS 2010. Authors are invited to submit the officially accepted/published version (without page restriction) together with a one or two-page abstract. Accepted papers of type Beta will be granted a full slot at the EIS conference, but only the extended abstract of the paper will be published in the proceedings.

Tool Demos

During the EIS conference, there will be time and space for presenting demos of tools to small groups of colleagues. In order to obtain an overview of the available demos, we ask you to submit a single page overview of the tool/demo that you would like to present.

Submission details

Paper submissions must be formatted in the Proceedings style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). For complete details, see Springer's Author Instructions. Authors keep the copyright of their submissions. The EIS Proceedings will be digital, and will carry an ISSN series number, just like journals, magazines and series of technical reports.

All submissions should be prepared in PDF and sent in by e-mail to Boudewijn van Dongen ( For Beta type of papers, please send in a single zip file that contains both the abstract and the original contribution.
