What and how to submit ?
The following files have to be submitted through EasyChair through the menu Submissions/add files. You’ll be capable of adding the following three files:
- A Springer copyright form, signed in ink by the corresponding author on behalf of all of the other authors of the paper. Please download and fill, sign and scan in PDF this copyright form where the conference name and the names of the volume editors are already entered. Please note that the third check box on the copyright form does not refer to employees within the EU but rather employees of the EU. Equally, the box for US Government employees should only be ticked by US Government employees.
- A final PDF corresponding exactly to the final sources.
- The source files for your submission:
- LaTeX users: A ZIP file including everything that is needed to recompile your paper, including: the .tex source file. Make sure that your .tex file does not contain any absolute paths; any non-standard style files and special fonts you may have used; images. Note that all figures are printed in black and white; the .bib file with bibliographic records.
- MS Word users : A ZIP file with Word or rtf files.
The corresponding author will be contacted by Springer to check the final PDF. In order for Springer to smooth out any formatting or capitalization discrepancies and to insert running heads, page numbers and a reference line at the bottom of the first page of every paper… Springer will enter into the source files and edit them. Once data processing has been finished, the publisher will contact the corresponding authors and ask them to check their papers.
