Authors Instructions

How to format your contribution for I2CS 2013:

new instructions

The proceedings had been changed. We will now publish all contributions by VDI publisher, Düsseldorf, Germany. Therefore, we kindly ask all authors following the before published formatting guideline from Springer but strictly submitt all text sources, pictures and tables together with the pdf-file. We will then do the re-formatting and agree with you on the final form of your submission.


Please format your paper according to the authors instruction of LNI. The following information and templates for LaTeX and Microsoft Word will help you (provided by Springer, www.springer.com):

To reach a unique appearance for the paper title and headlines, please capitalize the first character of nouns and important adjectives, although it is not common English. Please do not forget to also adapt your paper information accordingly.

Electronic submission of your paper is required. Full papers should be submitted as PDF files using the conference system EasyChair . The final camera-ready version is limited to 12 pages

Note: You will need to create an EasyChair account, if you have not already done so.

For the submission in EasyChair, you need to provide information about your contribution (address for correspondence, authors, title and abstract, keywords). This information can also be provided in advance without submitting the paper itself. We recommend to do so! You can update all information and of course your submission as long as the submission is not closed.

How to submit a paper for the Proceedings:

  1. As corresponding author you need to create an EasyChair account if you have not already done so.
  2. Please prepare your paper according to the Authors Instruction mentioned above before using the template files. These templates incorporate the specifications for conference proceedings. The length of the paper should be no more than 12 pages. Your paper has to be submitted in PDF format.
  3. Please submit your paper for review using the EasyChair conference management system (you need an account first).
  4. After the review a revision and final version of the paper has to be provided.
