Each oral presentation will last 20 minutes sharp (15
minutes presentation plus 5 minutes for questions-and-answers).
Papers presented orally will be also presented during the poster session on the same day of the presentation. Please refer to the on-line program for the details.
Posters should be of size A0 portrait. There is no standard template for the poster, every author can choose what best fits their work. Material to fix the poster on the stand will be available.
Papers that are not presented orally will be introduced
by the author in a 2 minute highlight, using a SINGLE
slide. This slide must be sent to us in advance. We will
preload this slide onto the computer and project it for
you during your presentation.
Submissions may be a maximum of 11 pages, excluding references, when typeset in the LNCS Springer LaTeX template. Submissions should be a minimum of 7 full pages.
This strict page limit includes figures, tables, and all supplementary sections (e.g., Acknowledgements). The only exclusion from the page limit is the reference list, which should be of any length that properly positions the paper with respect to the state of the art.
Papers should be prepared in English, in the LNCS Springer LaTeX style, using the default font and font size. Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings template for LaTeX, for the preparation of their papers. Please download the LNCS Springer LaTeX template package (zip, 322 kB) and authors' guidelines (pdf, 142 kB) directly from the Springer website. Please also download and consult the ANTS 2024 sample LaTeX document (zip, 5 kB), which shows the correct options to use within the Springer template.
Submissions that do not respect these guidelines will not be considered.
Note: Authors may find it convenient that Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are available in Overleaf
The initial submission must be in PDF format.
Please note that in the camera-ready phase, authors of accepted papers will need to submit both a compiled PDF and all source files (including LaTeX files and figures).
The camera-ready phase will have more detailed formatting requirements than the initial submission phase. Authors are invited to consult these camera-ready instructions preemptively.
Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity. If a submission is not accepted as a full length paper, it may still be accepted either as a short paper or as an extended abstract. In such cases, authors will be asked to reduce the length of the submission accordingly. Authors of all accepted papers will be asked to execute revisions, based on the reviewers’ comments.
Conference proceedings are published by Springer in the LNCS series.
The journal Swarm Intelligence will publish a special issue dedicated to ANTS 2024 that will contain extended versions of the best research works presented at the conference.
