Publish and Earn Royalties
Official conference proceedings of ICST sponsored events appear in the Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST) series jointly published by ICST and Springer. Inclusion in LNICST offers the following benefits to authors:
- Conference papers included in LNICST are distributed through an extensive global network of library consortia and appear on SpringerLink, one of the largest online scientific libraries, as well as Proceedings-ONLINE, ICST's official digital library. LNICST is reviewed by the same indexing services as Springer Lecture Notes Proceedings including DBLP, ZBlMath/CompuServe, IO-Port, EI, Scopus, INSPEC, ISI Proceedings, the Zentralblatt Math and Google Scholar. To learn more about LNICST, please visit http://www.springer.com/computer?SGWID=0-146-6-564009-0.
- ICST offers a global dissemination channel for audio and PowerPoint files of conference presentations through Conf-C@ST, the Society's online presentation portal. Conf-C@ST allows immediate access to the presentations of technical papers included in LNICST and further accelerates and expands the publication and dissemination cycle of research results. To upload audio, video and PowerPoint files of presentations, authors of accepted papers included in LNICST are requested to visit http://www.confcast.eu/.
- Extended versions of scientific papers included in LNICST can be considered for inclusion in the ICST Transactions journal series upon timely and formatting compliant submissions. For detailed information on each title of the ICST Transactions series and specific author guidelines and submission instructions, authors are requested to visit http://www.icst.org/publications/journals.
- LNICST and all ICST Publications are integrated in the Science Rewards Program that rewards participation in Society activities and provide authors royalties based on the number of registered downloads of their papers from Proceedings-ONLINE and presentations from Conf-C@ST. Publishing a conference paper in LNICST will automatically include authors in the Science Rewards Program. For more information on the Science Rewards Program and the ICST Partnership for Excellence Program, please visit http://www.icst.org/partnership.
All above described benefits of the multi-format and royalty-based dissemination channels are available only through ICST publications with ICST copyrights.
