Paper Format

The layout of the papers must be prepared according to the Instructions for the Preparation of Camera-Ready Contributions to LNCS Proceedings. Authors are asked to follow these instructions exactly. In addition to the Springer author instructions, authors should ensure that the submitted paper meets the following criteria:

  • The paper must not exceed 10 pages in the LNCS format. The font sizes must conform with the LNCS instructions.
  • Document formats:
    • PostScript, without encoding or condensation.
    • Level 3 or 4 PDF without passwords or encryption.
    • MS Word or other word processor formats will not be accepted.
  • The fonts used must meet the following criteria:
    • All fonts must be from the Latin 1 Fontset.
    • Except for the 13 basic PostScript fonts (Times-Roman, Helvetica, Courrier, Symbol), every font used must be included.
    • If possible, include only outline (Type 1 or TrueType) fonts, not bitmapped fonts.

Prepare for Double-Blind Review:

All reviewing will be double blind, so the paper must not include any information which allows the authors to be identified. Please consider in particular the following points to ensure a double blind reviewing process:

  • Author name(s) should not appear in the paper (including the abstract):
    • Eliminate references to your institutions, your sponsors, and your unpublished work.
    • If you build on your own published work you should give the complete reference (including your name) but talk about this work as if it were somebody else's.
    • Always make clear what the contributions/differences are with respect to (your own and others') prior work.
  • All author names must be inserted into the online submission form.
  • Delete author and institution information from document properties.


Workshops proposals should contain:

  • Workshop title
  • Primary contact (email)
  • Organizers (name/affiliation)
  • Objectives
  • Full/half-day workshop
  • Expected number of participants
  • Workhsop format (e.g., posters, program committee, paper format as part of ICVS?)
