Lecture Notes in Computer Science

Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) is a series of computer science books published by Springer Science+Business Media (formerly Springer-Verlag) since 1973.[1]


LNCS reports research results in computer science, especially in the form of proceedings, post-proceedings and scientific research monographs. In addition, tutorials, state-of-the-art surveys and "hot topics" are increasingly being included. Two sub-series of LNCS are:

The editorial team for LNCS is based in Heidelberg, Germany, but much of the production work has since been outsourced to India. As of 2013, more than 8,000 LNCS volumes have appeared. An online subscription to the complete series costs nearly 23,000 euros per year. LNCS is among the largest series of computer science conference proceedings, along with those of ACM, IEEE and USENIX.

As an example, the post-proceedings of the bioinformatics CIBB conferences are edited and published in the associated Springer LNBI series.
