Paper SubmissionPapers are invited for KES2007 and WIRN2007 on topics lying within the scope of the conference. All contributions must be high quality, original, should not have been published elsewhere and should not be intended to be published elsewhere during the review period. Contributions from more applied related fields in industry and commerce are very welcome.
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in Lecture Notes in AI as part of the LNCS/LNAI series. When formatting papers, please refer to the Springer-Verlag web site, and strictly follow the Instructions to LNCS Authors.
Papers in PDF format are required for review purposes, but authors are required to upload editable word-processor files (LaTeX or MS Word) at the end of the review process (see the Springer web site to find out about the files required).
Please note that the required paper length is eight pages in Springer format. Papers longer than this will be subject to a penalty charge. Papers very much longer or shorter than the required length may be rejected.
To ensure high quality, all papers will be thoroughly reviewed by the conference Programme Committee. Papers may be rejected without being sent to the reviewers if they are too long. Papers may be rejected without being reviewed if it is judged that they do not lie sufficiently within the scope of the conference.
The papers will be scheduled for presentation either orally or by posters, depending on their attributes, author preferences and referee recommendations. The presenter of each poster presentations will be required to give a brief oral snapshot presentation in a scheduled session in order to introduce the poster to the audience and will conclude with personal communications between authors and attendants in front of the poster. Posters are not a second choice presentation medium. Rather, besides the regularly submitted paper, they must be carefully designed to highlight in a very clear way the key points of the research carried out by the authors.
All papers for KES2007 must be submitted in electronic form using the PROSE software review system.

All oral and poster papers must be presented by one of the authors who must register for the conference and pay the fee. Authors are not encouraged to submit multiple papers, and authors will be restricted to one paper per registration.
Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in the KES Journal (International Journal of Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Engineering Systems) published by IOS Press, see KES Journal
