Accepted short papers will be allotted 4 pages each in the LNCS format in the same volume (the deadline for submitting the associated poster for presentation at the workshop will be announced later ).

Step-by-step final paper submission guidelines:

1. Manuscripts must be accompanied by a signed copyright form included in the template archive (see below) or downloadable here. It must then be faxed to +39 050 882.003, or sent by mail to

Prof. Giorgio Buttazzo
Scuola Superiore S. Anna
Via Moruzzi, 1

or uploaded in electronic form here (see instruction 8. below).

2. Download the zipped template folder and uncompress it in your working directory. "xxx_hscc2007.tex" is the main LaTeX2e template in which you prepare your final paper (it is the same template that was indicated for paper submission).

More information and the original source (llncs2e package of Springer) of the provided files can be found at:

3. Rename the main folder and all included LaTeX2e related files from `xxx_' to your (3 digit) confirmation number that you received in the acceptance letter.

Example: if your confirmation number is 98 then use `098_'. More in detail, rename the following files and folder in the following way:

  • files: from xxx_hscc2007.tex to 098_hscc2007.tex (the same holds for *.dvi, *.ps, *.pdf, *.aux, *.bib, *.bbl, *.blg, *.log, ...);
  • folder: from xxx_hscc2007 to 098_hscc2007.

4. Do not change and do not rename by any means the LNCS class-files: llncs.cls, splncs.bst. Other LaTeX2e classes or style files will not be included. If you have to define commands or other in LaTeX2e: use the specified area in the main LaTeX2e template `xxx_hscc2007.tex'.

5. Put all your figures as EPS-files into the folder `figures'.
Other picture or figure formats (*.jpg, *.gif, etc.) will not be supported.

6. Produce a (good quality) PDF file.

7. The complete folder `xxx_hscc2007' must be compressed in one of the following compression formats: *.zip, *.rar, *.tar.gz.

8. Upload here the compressed folder and PDF file (and optionally the copyright form) by using the access information sent in the acceptance letter.
