we plan some rule changes to become effective from December 2018 onwards:
(1) The minimum length for a paper published in a new CEUR-WS volume is increased to eight LNCS-equivalent pages (old: five). Exceptions may be possible for certain papers such as invited papers, if the other regular papers overfulfill the rule.
(2) All new volumes shall target an international audience. Therefore, at least 50% of the papers shall be written in English. We moderately discourage submissions of non-English papers.
Comments are welcome!
Kind greetings: Manfred
2018-11-14: The rules have now been amended and become operational by 2019-01-01, see http://ceur-ws.org/HOWTOSUBMIT.html#PRECONDS
