Instructions for Authors
Submission Format
Regular papers and abstracts of presentations submitted to MEMICS'09 must be typeset in LaTeX in the LNCS Springer style. Papers in other formats and/or exceeding the maximum length will not be accepted for publication. The maximum regular paper length is 8 pages, including the bibliography. Abstracts of presentations obey the same rules as regular papers, only their length is limited to 1 page (and they must include a note on where the original work was presented or accepted---otherwise the presentation will automatically be rejected). By submitting a paper or presentation abstract, the authors implicitly agree with the publication of the paper / presentation abstract in the MEMICS'09 proceedings.
Paper Processing
In order to typeset your manuscript, download the archive which contains the LNCS style class. A detailed description of the style is available in typeinst.pdf. The source of this file is available in We strongly recommend using it as a template. To create a PDF file from the LaTeX source form of the paper, use either
In the final camera ready version, turn page numbering and page headers off; they will be added by the editors.
We strongly recommend restricting to "line art" figures, e.g., graphs and schemes. Because of the printing technique, complex bitmaps like photos may lead to unpredictable results. Avoid colours, use at most several grades of grey.
For both initial and camera ready submissions, authors are required to submit:
The contributions are to be submitted using EasyChair, please follow this link:
Once again, please note that we need the sources of both regular papers and the one page abstracts of presentations already with the initial submission in order to speed up the typesetting process of the proceedings! The authors of regular papers, please note also that an abstract of your contribution has to be submitted one week before the paper.
When submitting your contribution, please select the topic of your contribution and provide its key words and a brief abstract in the respective fields of the EasyChair submission page (for presentations, this brief abstract may be as short as one sentence). Submit the gzipped tarball with sources of your contribution as an attachment to your submission.
