Congratulations that your paper abstract has been accepted by CSD&M 2023. There are two tracks for the full paper submission.

For all tracks, please prepare your paper with the provided word template.

Please note that once a paper has been delivered to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the paper cannot be made. Authors’ names cannot be added or deleted, their order cannot be changed, and the corresponding author cannot be altered.

In addition to the full paper, the author should also submit:

The corresponding author, who is also marked as such in the header of the paper, must sign the agreement on behalf of all of the authors of a particular paper, having gained their permission to do so. He or she signs and accepts responsibility for releasing the material on behalf of any and all co-authors.

B. Third-party permissions

As an author/editor of a work, you are responsible for overseeing the inclusion of third party content. By ‘third party content’ we mean any work that you have not created yourself and which you have reproduced or adapted from other sources. 

This document does not constitute legal advice. Authors remain fully responsible for ensuring that they have obtained, documented and paid for (when applicable), all necessary rights to use third party content in their works. If authors chose to reuse third party content from a previous edition of their work, they are also responsible for ensuring they obtained permission from the third party for new editions. Nothing in this document is to be understood as shifting responsibility for rights clearance questions from authors to Springer Nature. In case of uncertainty, authors should seek advice from a lawyer.

To obtain permission to use third-party material in the manuscript visit the Rights Holder website or Copyright Clearance Center Marketplace (CCC, If the material is not found, please exert your best efforts to use our Permissions Request Form and/or Release Request Form (to obtain permission from interviewees or other identifiable individuals or the owners of identifiable property in source material) for your request.
