Authors should submit their papers online. We use Easychair system for managing submissions and review process. Unregistered authors should first create an account in Easychair to log on. Detailed usage instruction on Easychair can be found https://easychair.org/account/signup.cgi
Submissions must be in Portable Document Format (.pdf). The list of authors should not be included in the paper manuscript PDF, in accordance to the double blind submission policy. Changes to the paper metadata on Easychair are permitted before the paper submission deadline.
All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of TWELVE (12 pages). However extra page charges will be applicable for papers exceeding 10 pages. Authors should pay special attention to unusual fonts, images, and figures that might create problems for reviewers.
LAMDA 2017 accepts regular and work-in-progress papers. Regular papers should present novel perspectives within the general scope of the conference. Short papers (Work-in-Progress) are an opportunity to present preliminary or interim results.

All submitted papers will be judged based on their originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. As an author, you are required to preserve the anonymity of your submission, while at the same time allowing the reader to fully grasp the context of related past work, including your own. Common sense and careful writing will go a long way towards preserving anonymity. Papers that do not conform with our double-blind submission policies will be rejected without review.
Minimally, please take the following steps when preparing your submission:
The organizers regard plagiarism as a serious professional misconduct. All submissions will be screened for plagiarism and when identified, the submissions by the same author will be rejected.
Submitted papers will undergo a peer review process, coordinated by the Program Committee. Each manuscript will be reviewed by a minimum of three reviewers. Acceptance of papers will be communicated to authors by email. The accepted regular and work-in-progress papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
To be published in LAMDA 2017 Conference Proceedings, atleast one author of the accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full rate. Both regular and work-in-progress papers will be scheduled for oral presentation. All accepted papers MUST be presented at the conference by one of the authors.
