The official conference language is English, and contributions in other languages will not be processed. All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another conference or journal. The conference accepts three kinds of contributions, which will be included in the official program.

  • Scientific papers report research with a scientific approach and implications. Their expected length is between 8 and 12 pages. Authors are expected to indicate the reasons justifying the intended exception from this rule.
  • Practitioners’ papers describe application examples of using TRIZ concepts and tools having technical or social implications. Their expected length is between 8 and 10 pages.
  • Posters present planned or preliminary research activities, students’ works, and experiments pertinent to the conference profile.

All the scientific papers and practitioners’ papers will be published by Springer in an IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology (IFIP AICT) volume, which implies indexing in Scopus and Web of Science. Therefore all authors should use the proceedings template (in MS Word version) and follow Springer’s authors’ instructions during the preparation of their papers. In addition, the corresponding author, acting on behalf of all of the authors of a given paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form upon acceptance of the paper. The person signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author indicated in the paper. Once the files are sent to Springer for production, changes to the authorship cannot be made.

Poster presentations should be prepared as A1 format posters with the contents addressing respective sections of the structured abstract form.

Please submit your contributions by updating the file attached to the entry created upon uploading the abstract to the EasyChair platform.
