    Paper categories

    There are two categories of submission – full papers and exploratory
    papers. Full papers should report more complete and denser research,
    while the later submission deadline for exploratory papers allows quick reporting of recent discoveries, work-in-progress and/or partial
    results. Submissions in the full paper category are refereed and
    selected by the program committee. Papers in the exploratory category
    go through a less rigorous evaluation process.


    Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of no more than 14
    pages (for full papers) or 8 pages (for exploratory papers) via the
    EasyChair system at

    https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=automata2016. ;

    Submissions should contain original research that has not previously
    been published. Concurrent submissions to other conferences/journals is
    not permitted. Supplementary material that exceeds the above mentioned
    page limits may be included as an appendix and will be considered at
    the committee's discretion (note that appendices will not be published
    in the proceedings). Submission must be formatted in LaTeX using the
    LNCS format (see http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs/lncs+authors)
    and submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF). Papers authored or co -authored by PC members are also welcome and will follow a specific
    evaluation process.


    Accepted full papers will appear in the proceedings published by
    Springer in the LNCS series and will be available at the conference. Exploratory papers will not be included in the LNCS proceedings;
    however, they will be printed locally and given to conference
