Duplicate submissions and novelty requirements
A research paper submitted to HIS 2017 cannot be under review for any other publishing forum or presentation venue; including conferences, workshops, and journals, during the time it is being considered for HIS 2017 conference. Furthermore, after you submit a research paper to HIS 2017, you have to wait for the response from HIS 2017 and only resubmit elsewhere if your paper is rejected--or withdrawn at your request--from HIS 2017. This restriction applies to identical papers as well as to papers with a substantial overlap in scientific content and results.

Every research paper submitted to HIS 2017 must present novel research not described in any prior publication. In this context, a prior publication is (a) a paper of four pages or more presented, or accepted for presentation, at a refereed conference or workshop with proceedings; or (b) an article published, or accepted for publication, in a refereed journal. If a HIS 2017 submission has overlap with a prior publication, the submission must cite the prior publication, along with all other relevant published work.

Reviewing process
Every research paper submitted to HIS 2017 will undergo a peer reviewing process. All accepted papers will be incorporated into the conference program and included in the conference proceedings published by Springer LNCS.
