Preparing Your Manuscript

We will accept only camera-ready manuscripts prepared using LaTeX2e together with the corresponding Springer class file llncs.cls. Only if you use LaTeX2e and llncs.cls, it will we be possible to add hyperlinks to your manuscript in the online version. 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.

Author's Names

The table of contents and the author index are actually created from the headers of the papers. We therefore ask you to check that the names in the headers are written as they should appear in the table of contents and the author index. We prefer names to be written out in full whenever possible. Please also make sure that no academic titles are included in the headers.

How to Submit Your Manuscript

Please submit your source (input) files, e.g., TEX files for the text and EPS or JPG, or PNG, or PDF files for figures, PDF file of the final version of your contribution, as well as the README file, and copyright form (one per paper, signed by one author on behalf of all the authors of the paper). Please compress them with zip or tar.gz.

Naming of the Electronic Files

The invited and contributed presentations are labeled IPxxx and CPxxx, 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 IPxxx.yyy for invited presentation xxx, where xxx is a surname of the first author, and CPxxx.yyy for contributed presentation, where xxx = {001 to 109}. Moreover, .yyy denotes the appropriate file name extension, e.g., .tex, .pdf, .eps, .jpg, .png, etc. The file names of figures should be IPxxx_fig1.yyy, IPxx_fig2.yyy, etc.
