Call For Papers

We invite you to submit a paper to AIST’19, a scientific conference on Analysis of Images, Social Networks, and Texts. The conference is intended for researchers and practitioners interested in data science. Similarly to the previous year, the conference will be particularly focused on innovative applications of data mining and machine learning techniques to image processing, analysis of social networks, text processing and other domains, such as economics or geographic information systems.

The conference is intended for computer scientists and practitioners whose research interests are related to data science. The previous conferences in 2012-2018 attracted a significant number of students, researchers, academics and engineers working on the analysis of images, texts, and social networks. The broad scope of AIST makes it an event where researchers from different domains, such as image and text processing, exploiting various data analysis techniques, can meet and exchange ideas. The conference allows specialists from different fields to meet each other, present their work, and discuss both theoretical and practical aspects of their data analysis problems. Another important aim of the conference is to stimulate scientists and people from the industry to benefit from the knowledge exchange and identify possible grounds for fruitful collaboration.



Similarly to the previous years, the conference proceedings will be published in the Springer’s in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. If you did not participate before in the AIST conference you can take a look at the proceedings of the last three years to get an idea about what kind of papers are accepted and what kind of topics are discussed at the conference. Proceeding of the previous years can be found below:

AIST 2018: Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) vol. 11179

AIST 2017: Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) vol. 10716

AIST 2016: Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) vol. 661

AIST 2015: Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) vol. 542

AIST 2014: Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) vol. 436


Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference.


Please submit here:

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

Full papers describing completed research up to 12 pages of content with references.

Short papers describing ongoing research up to 6 pages of content with references.

The papers must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS style. LaTeX template of the Springer LNCS is available at ShareLaTeX platform. We encourage you to use LaTeX template instead of Word template.

Papers should be submitted through the EasyChair conference management system (see the submission link above). Submitted papers should be written in English and provide sufficient detail to allow the Program Committee to assess the merits of the paper on the basis of technical quality, relevance to the conference topics, originality, significance, and clarity of presentation. Papers in the Russian language are not currently accepted.

The program committee expects that authors are ready to submit high-quality research papers. We also require at least one of the authors to attend the conference to present their study. Papers should present original work previously not published or concurrently submitted to another conference or journal.

Each paper will be reviewed by at least three PC members. To ensure a fair assessment of the submissions, the review will be double-blind, so you need to make your paper anonymous (remove links to your personal pages, acknowledgments, affiliations, etc.). Your work will be rejected in case you did not anonymize properly your paper.
