Instructions for camera-ready paper preparation


1. Paper preparation (evaluation version)


The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer Verlag, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. All papers submitted to ICANNGA'07 should be written in English, using the LNCS paper format. Note that these requirements differ from the rules of previous ICANNGA conferences! Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable. Authors should carefully check for correct grammar and spelling of their manuscripts. We encourgage the authors to prepare the papers in LaTeX, but MS Word files will also be accepted.


2. Submission


Authors should use the ICANNGA web-based submission facility to submit their papers and fill in the information regarding the contact author. This facility will automatically send a submission acknowledgement, by e-mail, to the "contact author". By submitting the paper to ICANNGA 2007 authors warrant that the paper nor any related paper with essentially the same technical content has been submitted to any other conference. The Authors should complete all required fields in the proper format when registering your paper. The papers should be submitted in Adobe Acrobat (pdf). If you do not have a copy of Adobe Acrobat, you can use the free online service at the Adobe website or the free trial from Exceptionally, also  PostScript (ps) and Microsoft Word (doc, rtf) files will be accepted. The source files are not required at this stage of submission. Before submission please print your paper using PostScript printer and check whether the whole text and figures are clearly visible.


3. Reviewing process


All submissions will be reviewed by at least 2 experts in the field, often the Programme Committee Members. Additional reviewers will be consulted if necessary. Once the review process is finished, the contact author of each paper will be notified by email of the result. He/she will then be able to view the review reports of the paper in the ICANNGA web-based submission facility.


4. Camera ready paper preparation and submission


The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer Verlag, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. All papers submitted to ICANNGA'07 should be written in English. Authors should carefully check for correct grammar and spelling of their manuscripts. Also very important is proper formatting of the paper, please follow precisely the formatting rules set up by Springer for LNCS series. In case of any inconsistencies the Author will be asked to correct the formating. The best way to follow the proper formatting is to use the LNCS templates (see below). The length of the paper should not exceed 10 pages ! Note that, comparing to requirement for evaluation version of the paper, there are two pages more in camera-ready version. Please collect all the files which are required to properly compile the final paper. Apart from text source files, it includes also (if applicable) graphics files containing all the figures, bibliography files etc. Include also the 'dvi', 'ps' and - obligatory ! - 'pdf' files with the final version of the paper. All these source files should be compressed to a single file with an extension 'zip','gz','rar' or 'tar'. This single file should be uploaded to our web-based submission facility.
