Submission Guidelines

Papers can be submitted at using Springer’s LNCS format ( For regular and tool demonstration papers, simultaneous submission to other conferences with proceedings or submission of material that has already been published elsewhere is not allowed. The page limits are strict and include references.

Papers are solicited in three categories:

  • Regular papers (limited to 16 pages in Springer LNCS format) describe innovative contributions and are evaluated with respect to their originality, significance, and technical soundness. We also solicit case studies describing applications of graph transformation in any application domain. Additional material intended for reviewers but not for publication in the final version may be included in a clearly marked appendix.
  • Tool presentation papers (limited to 8 pages in Springer LNCS format) demonstrate the main features and functionality of graph-based tools. A tool presentation paper may have an appendix with a detailed demo description (up to 4 pages), which will be reviewed but not included in the proceedings.
  • New ideas papers (limited to 2 pages in Springer LNCS format) report on relevant contributions to the  theory or applications of graph transformation, which may have been published (or accepted for publication) in a peer-reviewed conference other than ICGT, as a book chapter or journal article since 2018. Papers in this category will be selected for presentation at the conference according to their relevance to the graph transformation community, and they will be considered for the special issues. Submissions will consist of a 2-page abstract. In case of extended abstracts of published papers, the submission must refer to the published paper and include the original paper in PDF.
