This Technical Session offers prospective authors to send a full paper by e-mail. The papers should be sent to:
All submissions must be written in English. Send the paper as an attachment provided that the size of the message is reasonable (less than, 4 MB). Otherwise, please contact us before sending the paper.
Acceptable formats are pdf and postscript (use extension .pdf or .ps, respectively). Please, check that you have included all the fonts required when generating the .pdf files, so that your paper can be read properly on any platform. Exceptionally (and only for your initial submission), we can accept papers written in Microsoft Word. However, keep in mind that the final version of your paper should be, in general, written in LaTeX (either LaTeX 2.09 or 2e) according to the rules of LNCS and should not exceed ten pages.
You can also send your paper by air mail to:
Dpt. of Applied Mathematics and Computational Sciences
University of Cantabria
E.T.S.I. de Caminos, Canales y Puertos
Avda. de los Castros, s/n
Santander, E-39005, SPAIN
However, we strongly recommend you to use the e-mail for paper submission.
In addition to the paper, you must send a list of three possible referees for your paper, explaining why do you propose them. However, there is not guarantee that your paper will be reviewed for some of the proposed reviewers. This list is intended to assure that the review process is performed at due time. Therefore, the list will be used only if we are unable to find other reviewers for your paper.
After receiving your submission, the paper will be reviewed taking into account:
and acceptance/rejection will be based on this review. If a paper is rejected you will be contacted and given the referee reports. It may well be that your paper is more suited to be submitted to another workshop or conference.
All accepted papers will be published as full papers by Springer-Verlag, Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series and will be available for the delegates in printed form. In addition, all accepted papers will be scheduled for oral presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.
Papers should be 6 to maximum 10 pages A4, formatted using the LNCS guidelines. The style files for the LNCS can be found at the following URL:
The initial submission of the paper for peer review must be a full paper (6 to 10 pages), not an extended abstract. Your final paper (if accepted) must ( MUST!) be formatted according to the rules of the LNCS, in order to be accepted and published. This point will be checked very carefully.
