(MASTER 2019)

All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the LNAI conference proceedings and become openly accessible. The costs for gold open access publishing will be covered by the project “MASTER”.

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each 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.

The copyright form can be downloaded from here

Selected papers will be invited in a special issue in a journal such as International Journal of Geographical Information Science (IJGIS). The exact journal will be announced soon.

Papers submitted to MASTER2019 should be written in English conforming to the Springer LNCS guidelines. Author instructions, style files and the copyright form can be downloaded here (

The maximum length of papers is 16 pages in this format. Over-length papers will be rejected without review (papers with smaller than specified page margins and font sizes will be treated as over-length).

Up to 10 MB of additional materials (e.g. proofs, audio, images, video, data, or source code) can be uploaded with your submission. The reviewers and the program committee reserve the right to judge the paper solely on the basis of the 16 pages of the paper; looking at any additional material is at the discretion of the reviewers and is not required.
