Camera-Ready Instructions


  • The final paper and the signed copyright form are due on June 13, 2019
    This is a firm deadline for the production of the proceedings.

Camera-ready Submission

  • You should submit your paper using your EasyChair proceedings author role for WAISE 2019.

    • After you have logged in, select the Proceedings Author role to be directed to the submission page. Springer reserves the right to reformat your paper to meet their print and digital publication requirements. Consequently, you will need to submit all the source files associated with your paper. Follow the instructions after logging in, to upload two files:

      • either a zipped file containing all your LaTeX sources or a Word file in the RTF format, and

      • a PDF version of your camera-ready paper.

  • The page limits are strict (12 pages for scientific papers and 6 pages for position papers) and it is not possible to purchase extra pages. This includes References.

    • Papers outside these limits will be rejected

  • Plagiarism, self-plagiarism, and publication in multiple venues are not permitted.


  • Include acknowledgements of the support your work/project has received, as appropriate and if applicable, at the end of the paper.

Corresponding Authors

  • Please nominate a corresponding author, whose name and email address must be included in the copyright release form. If sending the copyright release form by email, please include the corresponding author's name and email address in the email. This author will be responsible for checking the pre-print proof of the final version of your paper that Springer will prepare.

Copyright Release

  • Authors must fill and sign the Springer "Consent to Publish" copyright release form using the following information:​​

    • ​Title of the Book or Conference Name: Computer Safety, Reliability and Security - SAFECOMP 2019 Workshops - ASSURE, DECSOS, SASSUR, STRIVE, and WAISE

    • Volume Editors: Alexander Romanovsky, Elena Troubitsyna, Ilir Gashi, Erwin Schoitsch, Friedemann Bitsch

  • One author may sign on behalf of all authors.

  • Your paper will not be published in the proceedings unless a completed and signed copyright transfer form has been received.

  • Springer does not accept digital signatures. Please physically sign the form and scan it in PDF or any standard acceptable image format. Please upload a signed and completed copyright form via EasyChair using your author account or email it to the SAFECOMP 2019 Publication Chair by the deadline.

Pre-print Checking

  • The publisher has recently introduced an extra control loop: once data processing is finished, they will contact all corresponding authors and ask them to check their papers within 72 hours. We expect this to happen shortly before the printing of the proceedings. At that time your quick interaction with Springer-Verlag will be greatly appreciated.
