The conference is open to attendees at all stages of career and education, whether you are at the start, middle or peak of your career, either as academics or practitioners. Submitted papers should be approximately 3,000-5,000 words in length.  Please return your paper, using the appropriate format, through the Springer OCS system. Please format your paper according to the Springer AICT Guidelines. These are different from many other publications. Please ensure identifying author information is removed for blind peer review.

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ instructions and use the proceedings templates, using Word only, for the preparation of their papers.

Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. Another feature they now offer is the inclusion of embedded videos in proceedings papers.

Accepted Papers

Once reviewed, if your paper is accepted for inclusion in the Conference and publication in the Proceedings, we will require you to ensure that the final version is formatted according to the Springer Guidelines for Authors and then submit it both as a pdf and as Word document through the OCS system by April 30th 2022. The corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign the Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.


Springer will be publishing the proceedings of the conference in the IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology series (IFIP AICT) and these Proceedings will be included in your delegate pack on arrival in Tokyo, Japan.
