Camera-ready instructions

1. FINAL PAPER: Please submit the files belonging to your camera-ready paper using your EasyChair author account. Follow the instructions after the login for uploading two files:

(1) either a zipped file containing all your LaTeX sources or a Word file in the RTF format, and

(2) the PDF version of your camera-ready paper

The page limit is 18 pages for full papers (or up to 20 if purchasing extra pages), and 8 pages for short papers (or up to 10 if purchasing extra pages). Please follow strictly the author instructions of Springer-Verlag when preparing the final version:

Our publisher has recently introduced an extra control loop: once data processing is finished, they will contact all corresponding authors and ask them to check their papers. We expect this to happen shortly before the printing of the proceedings. At that time your quick interaction with Springer-Verlag will be greatly appreciated.


  • Reference style: please use numbered references (e.g. [4])
  • Running heading: please leave the running heading empty, the publisher will edit your source file to include this.
  • Page numbering: please leave the page numbering empty, as the numbers will be reformatted during the publication stage.
