Paper Upload Instructions

Please upload a single zip-file containing the following files:

  • A file named main.tex with the full source LaTeX code of the paper (please, no includes, no subfiles, etc. Just ONE file). The main.tex file should explicitly specify the coding system (\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}, for instance), so that it can be compiled by us on any PC, whatever the operating system.
  • A file named main.bib with all the BibTeX reference (again, only one single file!)
  • All the libraries needed to compile it which are not in the standard LaTeX distribution (including the LNCS libraries: llncs.cls, splncs.bst)
  • A subdirectory called Figures (with a capital F!) which contains all the figures to be included by the main.tex file when compiled by pfdlatex to its PDF image under their final format (PDF, PNG, JPEG, etc.).
  • A PDF file called original.pdf which is the result of compiling your main.tex/main.bib file at your location, so that we can compare our output with your original output. 
  • A readme.rtf file, giving the first name(s) and the surname(s) of all the authors of the paper, the name of the corresponding author, and the name of the presenting author (if known).
  • If you received a request for a revision report, please include a file revision.txt that summarizes the basic modifications of your paper and how you responded to the suggestions and review of the referees.

The compressed .zip file should not contain anything else! Please remove all files *.aux, *.blg, *.bbl, *.log file, erratic texput.log, etc. This will save us a lot of pain and time. The final file main.pdf should be completely rebuildable by a simple command executed from within the directory:  "pdflatex main; bibtex main; pdflatex main; pdflatex main".

We kindly ask you not to supply eps-figures that cannot be handled by pdflatex. Please convert your eps-figures to pdf-figures (vector graphics) by using "ps2pdf13 -dEPSCrop -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress fig.eps" or something similar.

The final pdf-file should be compliant with our 12-page limit.  In addition, it will be necessary to sign a copyright form for publication
in the conference series. You will receive further information regarding this point.


Thank you very much for your cooperation!
