Instructions for Authors
Submission Format
There are three types of submissions: regular papers, presentations, and posters. Each submission should be (co-)authored by a master or PhD student who will present the results at the workshop. Submissions can be co-authored by PC members (excluding PC chairs).
Regular papers, abstracts of presentations, and abstracts of posters submitted to MEMICS 2016 must be typeset in LaTeX in the LNCS style. Papers in other formats and/or exceeding the maximum length will not be accepted for publication. The maximum regular paper length is 12 pages, including the bibliography. Abstracts of presentations and posters obey the same rules as regular papers, only their length is limited to 1 page. Additionally, abstracts of presentations must include a note on where the original work was presented or accepted (otherwise the presentation will automatically be rejected) and their titles must include the string "(PRESENTATION)". Titles of abstracts of posters must include the string "(POSTER)". Authors of posters will have an opportunity to advertise their work by a short presentation (cca 5 minutes long). By submitting a paper or presentation abstract, the authors implicitly agree with the publication of the paper/presentation abstract in the MEMICS 2016 proceedings. Abstracts of posters can be excluded from the proceedings on the authors request.
The prescribed limit of 12 pages can be extended by one page, especially in cases where additional explanation has been requested by the reviewers.
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 (not too many).
Contributions are to be submitted via EasyChair:
Authors of posters are expected to have their posters printed in the A1 or A0 format.
