Instructions for authors

Papers are to be submitted in PDF format using the EasyChair server. Submissions are limited to fifteen (15) single-column letter-size pages in Springer LNCS format (see LNCS author guidelines at unmodified Springer LNCS style file. This limit does not include references. An optional appendix (to be read at the program committee's discretion) may be included if desired. Simultaneous submission of papers to any other conference with published proceedings, as well as the submission of previously published papers, is not allowed. Papers must be written in English. If there is a physical meeting, as hoped for, for each accepted paper at least one author must register and attend the symposium to present it. Moreover, an author cannot register for multiple papers. That is, each accepted paper must have its own registrant. An exception will be made if a group of one or more authors has more papers accepted than group members.

Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of LATIN, which will be published in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Conflicts of interest

During submission, authors will have to indicate conflicts of interest with members of the program committee. In short, authors have a conflict of interest with PC members

  • if one is or was the thesis advisor to the other, no matter how long ago;
  • if they shared an institutional affiliation within the prior two years;
  • if they published two or more jointly authored works in the last three years; or
  • if they are immediate family members.


The state of the Corona pandemic in October 2022 cannot be predicted now. We will do our best to have a meeting in person, but it may happen that some or all attendees participate online.
