You may then select to either edit your existing information (address, email address, etc), if needed, and/or resubmit your paper.

Acceptance of papers is based on the full paper (double blind refereeing), limited to 8 pages. However, prospective authors are invited to submit a short abstract in advance (250 - 400 words), in order to check if the proposed topic fits within the conference scope.
Abstract submission is done directly in papers submission system, without needing special formatting.

Regarding the full paper, considering that the final version of accepted papers needs to follow the LNCS format, it is advisable that you adopt this format from the beginning. Accepted papers for the full conference will be included in the proceedings book by Springer.
