Submissions must describe authors' original research work and their results. Description of work-in- progress with concrete results is also encouraged.The contributions should not exceed 15 pages formatted according to the LNCS style, and should be submitted as Portable Document Format (PDF) files using the EasyChair submission site:
Accepted papers will be published in joint postproceedings of ESOCC workshops in Springer's Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series. For more details on the series and publication process please refer to Springer's CCIS series webpage. Springer conference paper templates can be found at the author's instruction page.
Submitting an abstract does not put any obligation on the authors to submit a full paper. Abstracts without an accompanying full paper by the paper submission deadline are automatically considered withdrawn. The authors are, however, encouraged to explicitly withdraw their abstract, if they decide not to submit a full paper.
All submissions will be reviewed by an international program committee who will make a selection among the submissions based on the novelty, soundness and applicability of the presented ideas and results. Concurrent submission to other venues (conferences, workshops or journal) and submission of papers under consideration elsewhere are not allowed.
Participants will give a presentation of their papers in twenty minutes, followed by a ten-minute round of questions and discussion on participants' work.
Following the tradition of the past editions, we plan to have a special issue of an international scientific journal devoted to FOCLASA 2013. Selected participants will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers after the workshop. These extended versions will be reviewed by an international program committee, which will decide on their final publication in the special issue. In the last few editions of FOCLASA, a special issue of Science of Computer Programming has been dedicated to this workshop.
