CD-MAKE will be published using Lecure Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Please use the IFIP-LNCS format.

The ARES & CD-MAKE steering committees closely monitored the COVID-19  situation all around the globe. The safety and well-being of all participants is a top priority for us. Therefore, we decided to switch to an all-digital conference experience. The organizing team is working very hard behind the scenes on making ARES & CD-MAKE 2020 a safe and successful conference in consideration that COVID-19 is an extraordinary global public health issue. We will soon provide more details about the all-digital conference.

We are able to guarantee that ARES & CD-MAKE 2020 will be published by the International Conference Proceedings Series published by ACM ICPS (ARES) & Springer LNCS (CD-MAKE).

We will not require a definite page number, but full papers shall be between 10 and maximal 20 pages, and, in any case, please produce even pages to ensure smooth page breaks, e.g. 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 pages!

(short papers and posters are usually between the minimum of 4 and maximum of 8 pages)

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop with formally published proceedings. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or workshop with proceedings. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, presentation and clarity of exposition. The contact author must provide the following information at the CD-MAKE conference system: paper title, authors names, affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail address of the author(s), about 200-250 word abstract, and about five keywords.

Note: Submission of a paper implies that – should the paper be accepted – at least one of the authors will register and present the paper at the conference.

The CD-MAKE conference system (EasyChair) will be available here:

Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance.
