There shall be a single workshop proceedings volume containing the accepted
papers of all four workshops. This volume shall be ready when the ER2003
conference starts. Hence, final papers must be ready in sync with regular
ER2003 conference papers.
Guidelines for workshop organizers
Workshop organizers are responsible for collecting the final versions
of all accepted papers and make sure that the material is
complete (hardcopies of all papers, LateX/Word sources of all papers,
signed copyright forms for all final papers). Additionally,
workshop organizers should prepare the following two documents:
List of all reviewers of the workshop, organizing committee of the workshop
(appears at the start pages of the LNCS volume)
1-2 pages description about the workshop
(appears directly after the title page of the workshop in the middle of the volume)
All material (electronic version & camera ready hardcopies) have to be arrived with the ER workshop
chairs by June 14, 2003.
Final workshop papers are restricted to 12 pages. Extra pages cost 150 USD
per page (but amount of extra pages is limited).
The electronic versions of all papers plus the
short introduction have to be uploaded as ZIP archive
TEST2003.zip (use acronym of your workshop as archive name!)
Include in the ZIP archive subdirectories for
all papers containing their Latex sources and figures, or Word files respectively.
A typical structure of such a ZIP file would be:
-intro.tex (1-2 pages introduction by workshop organizers)
-llncs.cls (just the LNCS style file)
-intro.ps (Postscript version for correctness check)
-toc.tex (table of contents of your workshop)
-reviewers.tex (list of reviewers for the workshop)
+paper1 (subfolder for paper1 of the workshop)
-sv-lncs.dot (the style file for Word documents to appear in LNCS layout)
NOTE: You can download examples via
or download the ZIP file
as a whole.
Guidelines for authors
Workshop papers are to be formatted like standard ER 2003 papers except that
the page limit is 12 pages. Please follow the instructions on
when preparing the camera-ready copy. Include all text sources (Latex or Word) and figures
(preferred are encapsulated postscript files) in a single directory, ZIP it and submit it to your workshop chair.
The ZIP archive should also contain Postscript or PDF versions of the paper that
print on standard A4 paper.
Important: Use ISO-style filenames, i.e. do not include any special characters like
blanks in the file names! Preferrably use small characters for filenames.
Please consult your workshop chairs for further instructions.
