Instruction for authors

excerpt from the linked PDF

Participants of the Linz Seminar are strongly encouraged to submit their contributions in Latex. You may use the Latex source file of this text as a pattern. We use the llncs document class. The file llncs.cls can be downloaded from our webpage. The page style is "empty". The title section is made with the commands \title, \author, and \institution; cf. the source file.

When preparing your abstract, you are kindly requested to take into account the following points:

  • Please include additional packages only if you really need them.
  • Please restrict self-written macros to the necessary minimum. In particular, include only those macros that you actually use.
  • Please include comments into your file only if you think they are useful for us. Otherwise please delete all parts not needed for compilation.
  • Graphics can be included with a command like:
    The format is preferably pdf, but it can also be one of png or jpg. The format ps is not possible and please avoid eps.
  • Apart from files containing figures, please submit only one source file (together with a corresponding compiled pdf file). If you use bibtex, please copy your references, i.e., your bbl-file, into the main file.

Hints for newcomers of Latex

If you are new to Latex, you may find information on it, e.g., at the following places:
