Author's Instructions for Accepted Contributions in the PPAM 2007 Proceedings Published in the LNCS Series of Springer-Verlag

The PPAM2007 Proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Please follow the new version of the "Author's Instructions for the Preparation of Camera-Ready Contributions to LNCS/LNAI/LNBI Proceedings". Following these Instructions, we would like to encourage authors to list keywords within the Abstract section.

Manuscripts must be accompanied by a signed copyright form. All these files can be found on Springer-Verlag website.

Please send all files of your contribution (see below), and the completed and signed copyright form to the volume editors (see address below). They will check the contributions, decide in which order they shall appear in the book, and send the complete files, and the complete copyright forms of their volume to Springer Verlag.

Additional Information Required by the Volume Editors
For each contribution, we need the name and e-mail address of the contact author. The contact author will be responsible for checking though the final pdf from the Proceedings to make sure that no errors have crept in during the transfer or preparation of the files. This should not be seen as an opportunity to update or copyedit the papers. Only errors introduced during the preparation of the files by the Publisher will be corrected.

When sending your final files, please include README file, which besides the name and e-mail address of the contact author, should contain information which of your names is/are your first name(s) and which is/are your family name(s). This is important because authors are listed alphabetically according to their surnames in the author index.

An example of contents for README file is shown below:

Preparing Your Manuscript
We will accept only camera-ready manuscripts prepred using LaTeX2e together with the corresponding Springer class file llncs.cls. Only if you use LaTeX2e and llncs.cls will we be able to add hyperlinks to your manuscript in the online version. The LaTeX2e macro package for LNCS contains further files: llncs.dem is a sample input file which you may take as a source for your own input, llncs.doc is the documentation of the class. We also provide the LaTeX2e source file of the "Authors' Instructions", which may serve as a further sample input. We would like to stress that the style files should not be manipulated and that the guidelines regarding font sizes and format should be adhered to. This is to ensure that the end product is as homogeneous as possible.

If possible, please produce your figures electronically and integrate them into your text-file. For LaTeX users we recommend using the style-files psfig or epsf.

How to Submit Your Manuscript
Please submit to the volume editor (see e-mail address below), your source (input) files, e.g. TEX files for the text and EPS files for figures, PDF file of the final version of your contribution, as well as the README file. Please compress them with zip or tar.gz.

Naming of the Electronic Files
The invited and contributed presentations are labelled IAxx and CAxx, respectively. These labels will be used to identify the electronic files of each individual manuscript.

Please, name all files in the following way. The name of each file name should be IPxx.yyy for invited presentation xx, where xx is a surename of the first author, and CPxx.yyy for contributed presentation number xx (= 1 to 151). Moreover, .yyy denotes the appropriate file name extension, e.g., .tex, .pdf, .eps, etc. The file names of figures should be IPxx_fig1.yyy, IPxx_fig2.yyy, etc.

We illustrate the naming conventions for manuscript CP15, that we assume is prepared using LeTeX2e. The manuscript is assumed to include two figures in eps-format.

    The following files should be submitted:
  • CP15.tex
  • CP15_fig1.eps
  • CP15_fig2.eps
  • CP15.pdf

The following list describes which number should be used for each contribution to PPAM 2007.

Submit files of you paper, that fulfill the Springer requirements, to roman@icis.pcz.pl and signed copyright form, either as a scanned pdf, or by fax to
+48 34 3250 - 589
