The conference program will include presentation of invited papers, oral presentations, and poster/demonstration sessions. Papers will be presented in plenary or topic oriented sessions. Hopefully, after two COVID years, the conference can be planned to be held on-site again.

Social events including a trip in the vicinity of Brno will allow for additional informal interactions.


Authors are invited to submit a full paper not exceeding 12 pages formatted in the LNCS style (including references). Those accepted will be presented either orally or as posters. The decision about the presentation format will be based on the recommendation of the reviewers. The authors are asked to submit their papers using the on-line form accessible from the conference website.

Papers submitted to TSD 2022 must not be under review by any other conference or publication during the TSD review cycle, and must not be previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere.

As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...".  Papers that do not conform to the requirements above are subject to be rejected without review.

The paper format for review has to be a PDF file with all required fonts included. Upon notification of acceptance, presenters will receive further information on submitting their camera-ready and electronic sources (for detailed instructions on the final paper format see https://www.tsdconference.org/tsd2022/paper_instr.html).

Authors are also invited to present actual projects, developed software or interesting material relevant to the topics of the conference.  The presenters of demonstrations should provide an abstract not exceeding one page. The demonstration abstracts will not appear in the conference proceedings.
