Publishing your paper as an AIB

  1. Starting with 2001, all AIBs will usually be published electronically. If necessary, every author can produce copies of his electronic paper.
  2. Write your paper following the AIB style guidelines (Example PDF file). For LaTeX users, we provide the class aibtitle.cls and Springer's llncs.cls. Using aibtitle.cls, the file titlepage.tex automatically produces a title page. It furthermore requires the graphical background file background.pdf.
  3. After adapting and compiling titlepage.tex to generate a PDF title page, you can include this PDF file as a first page in your LaTeX sources. An example can be found here.
  4. Include the list of available reports. There are two options:
  5. Consult your supervisor for checking the final version of your report.
  6. Consult me to obtain your AIB number.
  7. Include the AIB number to obtain your PDF title page and after that, include this PDF file in your final document.
  8. Write an BibTeX-entry for your technical report. An example can be found here. Please include keywords.
  9. Send your PostScript file, the abstract and your BibTeX-file to me.
  10. If possible, please send a PDF version as well. For best results, use PostScript fonts instead of generating bitmap fonts. You should set type1_default=true in texmf/dvips/config/updmap and/or have the following options in your ~/.dvipsrc:
    p +psfonts.cmz
    p +psfonts.amz
If your report is conforming to the style guidelines, it will now be integrated into these web pages. Furthermore, the report will be announced via the AIB mailing list and in the newsgroup comp.doc.techreports.
