Instructions for Paper Submission

Submissions are to be made to via EasyChair. At least one author of accepted papers must guarantee that they will present their paper at the workshop.

All submissions must be written in English, and only PDF files will be accepted (a Latex source file will be required for the final version of accepted papers). All submissions should be appropriately anonymized (i.e., papers should not contain author names or affiliations, or obvious citations). Submissions should be at most 16 pages in the LNCS format, excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and at most 20 pages in total.

A paper submitted to STM 2024 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for STM 2024. Furthermore, after you submit to STM 2024, you must await our response before submitting elsewhere. If you submit your paper to another conference or journal either before or after submission of the paper to STM 2024, we will reject your paper without review and will also notify the other conference/journal. This restriction applies to identical as well as to substantially similar papers.

As in previous years, the proceedings will be published online by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series (past STM proceedings are available here). As such, the final version of an accepted paper must be in the format required for publication in the LNCS series. Authors should consult Springer's authors' guidelines and use their proceedings templates. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs (https://goo.gl/hbsa4D) in their papers. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

In addition, the corresponding author of each accepted paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
