Note that submission deadlines are given in the AoE (Anywhere on Earth) time zone, GMT minus 12 hours.

Please note we are on a tighter than normal schedule and there can be no extension; we have already compressed the reviewing, revision and publication timeline.

Instructions for Authors

Electronic Submissions

All papers and abstracts should be submitted electronically using EasyChair via this link:

Papers must be submitted in PDF format.

I. Submissions to be considered for oral presentations (Tracks A and B)

Authors submitting a paper and/or proposal for a presentation may choose between two submission tracks. Submissions for oral presentations can be submitted to one of the two tracks (A) or (B).

Track A - Full Paper: For authors who want their full papers to be published in the Leibniz International Proceedings of Informatics (LIPIcs) conference proceedings. Submissions to this conference will be published in accordance with the Berlin Declaration of Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities, for more information see: Additionally, submissions are also expected to adhere to the Core Practices of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE): Finally, submissions should conform to the following guidelines:

Track B – One-page abstract with accompanied material: Primarily for authors submitting experimental results who plan to submit to a journal rather than publish in the conference proceedings. For a Track B submission to be considered, it must contain at least 67% (i.e. 2/3) new content, beyond that which has been presented at previous years of the DNA conference. (Abstracts for work recently submitted to, or published in, a journal will also be considered.) To be considered for oral presentation, submissions should conform to the following guidelines.

II. Poster submissions (Track C)

For authors interested in presenting their work only in the poster session, the abstract submission will be submitted electronically via EasyChair following the instructions and link at the conference web page. All poster submissions should be in PDF format and conform to the following guidelines:
