Instructions for the Authors

General Instructions

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any journal or any other conference or workshop with formally published proceedings. Authors may also not submit the work to any other journal or conference/workshop with published proceedings until the date of notification. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or workshop that has proceedings. Information about submissions may be shared with program chairs of other conferences for the purpose of detecting duplication. Submissions must be processed in Microsoft Word/LATEX format and must use the standard Springer Nature Journal format available at:

Download LATEX format

Download WORD format

Each submission must begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of key words, followed by a main body, appendices (if any), and references. The main body should begin with an introduction that summarizes the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. If the authors include appendices, they should be placed after the main body and before the references. Submissions not meeting these requirements risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Optionally, additional supporting material can be appended to the submission. The additional supporting material should be placed after the references, it should be well-marked, and it has no prescribed form or page limit. Alternatively, the supporting material can be submitted as a separate file. Authors are encouraged to use this space to include proofs, source code, and other information allowing verification of results; unverifiable papers risk rejection. However, committee members will read the additional supporting material at their discretion, so the submission should be intelligible and self-contained without it.

Submission Instructions

All contributions to ICIRE 2023 must be submitted online as per the prescribed format by email to icire@iiref.in.
