Research Paper Submissions

Authors are invited to submit original research contributions or experience reports not concurrently submitted elsewhere. Submitted papers will be refereed by at least three reviewers for quality, correctness, originality, and relevance. Similar to the previous symposia, accepted papers will be published by Springer as proceedings in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Submissions have to be written in English.

Papers are expected to be submitted in Springer LNCS format. The number of pages should not exceed 18 pages; papers exceeding 18 pages will be rejected. Sample style files are available for Latex2e and Microsoft Word. The use of Latex2e is preferred.

Please submit your manuscript via the submission website for research papers.

Demonstration Submissions

Demo submissions should have a maximum of 5 pages in LNCS format and will be included in the proceedings. Up to 4 pages are to be used to describe the scientific background, and one additional page should describe the nature of the demonstration that will be given at SSTD 2013.

A submission should include the motivation for the demonstrated concepts, information about the technology and the system to be demonstrated (including a system description, functionality and figures when applicable), and a justification of the system's significance.

Demo papers should be submitted in PDF format (make sure all fonts are embedded).

Please submit your manuscript via the submission website for demo papers.

Vision/Challenge Submissions

Besides demonstration and research paper submissions, we encourage you to submit short papers containing revolutionary and visionary ideas in the area of spatial, temporal, and spatio-temporal data management. Vision/Challange submissions should have with the following properties:
  • The ideas proposed within your paper will likely guide research in the near future
  • Your thoughts challenge existing assumptions that are prevalent in the research community
  • You identify novel applications and technology trends that create new research challenges
While an exhaustive evaluation of the proposed ideas is not necessary, insight and in-depth understanding of the issues is expected. Accepted contributions will be presented at a special session during the symposium and will be included in the proceedings of SSTD 2013. Vision/challenge submissions should have a maximum of 4 pages in LNCS format.

Please submit your manuscript via the submission website for vision and challange papers.
