Submissions to NB&PL2024 Conference will be made through the EquinOCS Springer platform.

Types of submissions

Submissions to the conference may be made in the form of

  • (a) completed, full papers, or
  • (b) long abstracts, though authors are encouraged to submit full papers.

Authors of papers and long abstracts submitted to the conference accept that their submissions, if finally accepted, will be published     by Springer in the conference book; they also commit to presenting them at the conference.

The book will be made available to the attendees for free at the conference.

All completed papers must therefore be formatted according to the Springer template (maximum 8 pages total including tables, figures and references; extra pages up to 4 would be allowed, though, but they would be charged as indicated at section “Registration”). Long abstracts (minimum of 4 to up to 6 pages) may also be formatted according to such a template.

Review process

The submitted contributions will be examined first by the organizers to decide its suitability with the conference’s scope. All contributions fitting the scope will undergo a thorough review process. They will be refereed by at least two experts in the field based on relevance, originality, significance, quality, and clarity.

The reviewers will be mainly chosen from the Program Committee.

If manuscripts are accepted, or conditionally accepted, the authors will have a couple of weeks to eventually revise, when requested, their first draft submitted manuscripts based on the reviewers’ comments and send a camera-ready paper and other files required for accepted papers (accurate information about the final files will be provided upon acceptance).


Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings, to be published by Springer. It is mandatory, though, that at least one author of every accepted paper be registered by April 23rd, 2024. Accepted papers not satisfying this requirement, but registered after this deadline, will be invited to be presented at the conference, though will NOT be included in the book.
Every registered scholar will have a complimentary copy of the Springer book (depending on Springer’s typesetting and proofing deadlines, this copy will be delivered to registered authors during the conference or sent later by postal mail to the address they provide). Also, and more interesting for their international diffusion, papers will be worldwide available at the Springer’s online platform and related journals’ databases.


At least one of the authors will be required to register and present the paper in order to include the paper in the conference proceedings.
