Abstract submission: June 15, 2017
Full manuscript submission deadline: July 15, 2017
Author notification: August 31, 2017
Final version: September 15, 2017


Papers will be accepted for oral presentation at the workshop and included in the proceedings, which will be published in a special issue of the journal Research in Computer Science.

In the first edition (WIDSSI 2015) the best papers presented in oral version were published in the Handbook of Research on Managerial Strategies for Achieving Optimal Performance in Industrial Processes edited by IGI Global Publishing (http://www.igi-global.com/book/handbook-research-managerial-strategies-achieving/142137).

The best papers presented in the second edition (WIDSSI 2016) were selected to be published in the book entitled New Perspectives on Applied Industrial Tools and Techniques by Springer Verlag (http://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783319568706#aboutBook).

In the third edition (WIDSSI 2017), the best papers will be selected to be published in a journal indexed by ISI/SCI, SCOPUS and/or DBLP, among others. The name of the journal will be shortly announced. For this reason, the authors will be required to provide expanded versions of their submissions which will undergo an additional review process for inclusion in the Journal.


Interested parties are invited to submit a technical paper written in English in LNCS Springer style, not exceeding 8 pages. The details of the format can be found at Lecture Notes in Computer Science: Information for LNCS Authors. The submissions must not contain authors' names or affiliations. They must not include either any information that may reveal the authors' identities. Submissions failing to meet these requirements will be rejected without revision.

In order to submit a paper electronically, authors must send an e-mail with the subject: "WIDSSI17 Submission" to Cuauhtémoc Sanchez-Ramirez, Giner Alor-Hernandez and Jorge Luis Garcia-Alcaraz (see below for corresponding email addresses) with the paper attached in PDF format and the body of the message should contain the following data:

1. Paper title.
2. Authors' names and affiliations.
3. Postal address, e-mail address and phone number of the contact authors.
4. The abstract of the paper.
5. Up to five keywords.

Please contact any of the workshop organizers in case you have any doubt or problem with electronic submissions.


The workshop will be held in collaboration with MICAI 2017 that will take place this year on October 23th - 28th, 2017 at the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California, campus Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico.
