LaTeX Instruction

You must use the LaTeX style from LNCS Springer templates provided in Overleaf:
https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/springer-lecture-notes-in-computer-science/kzwwpvhwnvfj#.WuA4JS5uZpi

  1. Please use as few Latex files as possible and name the main file clearly, e.g., main.tex, so it is clear for other people how the source should be compiled. Ideally, ensure that it is possible to compile your paper using pdflatex main.tex Please place all references in the main.tex file (NOT in a bib file).
  2. Please mark the corresponding author clearly, by putting \Letter in brackets after the author’s name in the \author block. Use package \usepackage[misc]{ifsym}
  3. Please use the \tocauthor and \toctitle fields, as these are important to create the publication’s Table of Contents.
    Please make sure that your paper is properly formatted. DO NOT change the format required by Springer or their style sheets. Do not reduce spaces, fonts or anything else. Springer will remove all LaTeX instructions that change their format, and the paper length will be judged by whatever remains. Note that the contribution will be compiled from the sources, not from your PDF, and your contribution may look entirely different in the end, if you modify the formatting.
    Other advice for generating your camera-ready document can be found here: camera_ready_instructions.pdf
    Once data processing is finished; Springer will contact all corresponding authors and ask them to check their papers. Your quick interaction with Springer will be greatly appreciated.

Final papers after acceptance will normally be 10 pages with a maximum of 12 pages in length. The page count includes everything, including references and appendices. Please follow Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates provided in Overleaf (https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/springer-lecture-notes-in-computer-science/kzwwpvhwnvfj#.WuA4JS5uZpi).
