Full papers
Full papers will be published in the Special issue of the journal Lecture Notes in Computer Science (Springer). Acceptance for publication in the journal is subject to peer review. Papers must not exceed 14 pages in the LNCS format. For camera-ready papers use Latex or Word style (find here:
The program committee may decide to accept a submission as a short paper if it reports interesting results but does not justify publication of a full paper.

Short papers
ADBIS short research papers must not exceed 8 pages. The best paper authored solely by students will receive an award. Accepted short papers of the main conference will be published in Springer’s Communications in Computer and Information Science (Springer) series.
Accepted workshop papers, doctoral consortium papers are also published in Springer’s Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series.


Further publication options
Extended verions of the best papers of the main conference will be invited for submission in special issues of the ISI-indexed journals
