Paper Format

Please prepare your paper in English using the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) template, which is available here. Papers must be submitted in PDF.

Types of Submissions

When submitting a paper to LION5, authors are required to select one of the following three types of papers:
  • Long paper: original novel and unpublished work (max. 15 pages in LNCS format);
  • Short paper: an extended abstract of novel work (max. 4 pages in LNCS format);
  • Work for oral presentation only (no page restriction; any format). For example, work already published elsewhere, which is relevant and which may solicit fruitful discussion at the conference.

  4. Special Session 3: Self-tuning, self-configuring and self-generating evolutionary algorithms (Self* EAs)
  5. Special Session 4: Software and Applications (LION-SWAP)

Any questions on the general track can be sent to: lion5@cs.cinvestav.mx
Any questions on the special sessions can be sent to their organizers.
