Paper Submission

Paper submission must be in English. All papers will be double-blind reviewed by the Program Committee based on technical quality, relevance to data mining, originality, significance, and clarity. All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Papers that do not comply with the Submission Policy will be rejected without review.

Each submitted paper must include an abstract up to 200 words and be no longer than 12 single-spaced pages with 10pt font size (including references, appendices, etc.). Authors must use Springer LNCS/LNAI manuscript submission guidelines for their submissions. All papers must be submitted electronically through the CMT paper submission system in PDF format only. Supplementary material may be submitted as a separate PDF file, but reviewers are not obligated to consider this, and your manuscript should, therefore, stand on its own merits without any supplementary material. Supplementary material will not be published in the proceedings.

We require that any submission to PAKDD must not be already published or under review at another archival conference or journal. Papers on arXiv do not violate this rule as long as the submitted paper does not cite them. Submitting a paper to the conference means that if the paper was accepted, at least one author will complete the regular registration and attend the conference to present the paper. For no-show authors, their papers will not be included in the proceedings.

The conference will confer several awards, including Best Paper Award, Best Student Paper Award, and Best Application Paper Award from the submissions.

Springer will publish the proceedings of the conference as a volume of the LNAI series.

Double-Blind Review

Paper submission must adhere to the double-blind review policy. Submissions must remove all details identifying the author(s) from the original manuscript (including the supplementary files, if any), and the author(s) should refer to their prior work in the third person and include all relevant citations.

Because of the double-blind review process, non-anonymous papers that have been issued as technical reports or similar cannot be considered for PAKDD2023. An exception to this rule applies to manuscripts that were published in arXiv not later than October 24, 2022, i.e., at least a month before PAKDD’s submission deadline.

The author list and order cannot be changed after the paper is submitted.
