Before the review process, the articles will be tested with a specific software for plagiarism detection. The total similarity percentage reported should be less than 8-10%, (depending on the significance of the content reported as similar with other works) and the individual similarity percentage (corresponding to one reference item from the report), must be less than 1% .
Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a 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.
