Submission Guidelines and Instructions

Authors are invited to submit English-language research and application papers representing original, previously unpublished work. Duplicate submissions are not allowed. Papers must be submitted as a single PDF document, via the Easychair system.

Submissions must conform to Springer's LNCS style (Latex style only for camera-ready papers) and should not exceed 14 pages. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition.

By the way 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.

The program committee may decide to accept a submission as a short paper if it reports interesting results, but does not justify a publication as a full paper.

As for the previous edition of MEDI, all accepted papers including short papers will be published in Springer LNCS series. The book metrics available on SpringerLink to previous MEDI proceedings, https://link.springer.com/conference/medi give details on the number of citations, downloads, and readers at paper level and at book level.

One author of an accepted paper must register to MEDI 2021 in order to have the paper published. Each accepted paper must be presented at the conference by one of the authors.

If any of the authors contributing to MEDI 2021 are interested in Open Access or Open Choice, please refer to Springer webpage for prices and additional information. In such case the invoicing address and the CC-BY Consent-to-Publish forms will be needed at the same time as the files for the publication.

Publication and Special Issues

All accepted papers will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer-Verlag.

Best papers will be invited for submission in special issues of well ranked Journals:
The Journal on Software and Systems Modeling (SoSyM), Q2 with an IF: 1.876 (2019) has accepted to organize a special issue for selected papers of MEDI.
