	• Short articles submissions (up to 8 pages) must describe an original work which may present
		• A small, focused contribution,
		• A work in progress, or
		• An interesting application case.
	• Demos and posters presentations (5 pages)
	• All submissions must be in English and in formatted the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). For details on the LNCS style, see Springer's Author Instructions. 
	• All articles are to be submitted via EasyChair https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nliwod5 
	• All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the Program Committee of the workshop.
