Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not under review for another conference, workshop, or journal. The contributions should address research questions from one or more of the areas listed above.

We are particularly encouraging

1. Contributions that describe and evaluate technological innovations (e.g. new methods and approaches).
2. Empirical studies (e.g. quantitative data on the effects of novel technology in technical, social, or economic terms).
3. Systematic surveys of competing techniques and paradigms.

The questions addressed should be practically relevant and of generic interest. Full-papers should include a systematic evaluation of the contribution and relate it to the established state of the art and competing recent contributions. Short-papers may present work supported by preliminary evidence only.

Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 reviewers. Papers are evaluated according to originality, significance, technical soundness and the clarity of exposition. At least one author is required to register and present the paper.

Full papers are limited to 12 pages and short papers to 6 pages in Springer LNBIP formatting. Please follow the official Springer LNBIP formatting instructions at

Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF format) is required. Please use the ConfDriver submission system at

There, select "Author Options" and then make sure to proceed to the EC-Web 2014 conference.
