2.1 Language: English (dialects including American, British, Canadian, etc.) is the language of the conference and of all submissions.
2.2 Originality: Submissions to WHICEB2023 must be original; submissions cannot have been published or accepted in a journal or conference proceedings.
2.3 Template and Formatting: Conference proceedings will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP). Paper must not exceed 12 LNBIP pages (including abstract and references). All authors are kindly asked to follow the LNBIP Author formatting guidelines from Springer for the preparation of their manuscripts. The Author Guidelines document summarizes how a proceedings paper should be structured, how elements (headings, figures, references) should be formatted using predefined styles, etc. It also gives some insight on how a paper will be typeset at Springer.
Production of the camera-ready paper will be a much smoother process if authors make use of the available MS Word template, which incorporates all the recommended formatting guidelines. Template supporting MS-Word 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019. Please download the Instructions for installing and using the author template, including splnproc1703.docm（Microsoft formate）and splnproc1703_mac.docm（Mac formate）
Any submission that does not use this template or deviates from the formatting requirements will be rejected without review. After formatting your full paper according to the Springer guidelines and before its submission (through the CMS) you are kindly asked to carry out a number of checks.
All submissions must be transformed into PDF format using Adobe Acrobat or other software before submission. Files submitted in other formats or that do not use the submission template will not be considered for review.
Authors enter the submission title, abstract, keywords, and author information in the menus prompted by Easychair.
2.4 Author Information: The papers submitted for review MUST NOT contain any author information due to the double-blind review process. The papers submitted for review not being anonymous will be rejected without review.
3. The Types of paper
Full research papers: The paper should be written in English, and haven’t been published before. The topic of the paper should comply with conference tracks. A full research paper is expected to include innovative research results from empirical research, experiment, modeling or theory study. Excellent papers after double-blind review will be awarded ‘best paper nomination’ and be recommended to international journals. The length of the submitted paper should be not exceed 12 LNBIP pages . The published expanded abstract in the conference proceedings will not influence submitting your paper to international journals in the future. At least one author of the accepted paper should attend the conference and present the paper, and accepted papers should register before March 15, 2023.
