Springer-Author Discount

All authors (in particular, authors contributing to any LNCS proceedings volume) and editors of Springer books are entitled to buy any book published by Springer for personal use at the "Springer-Author" discount of one third off the list price. Such preferential orders can only be processed through a Springer sales office directly, not through book stores. You must cite the Springer publication you (co-)authored.

Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes - Using LaTeX2e

We want to add hyperlinks to your manuscript in the online version, so we recommend the use of LaTeX2e for the preparation of your camera-ready manuscript, together with the corresponding Springer class file - llncs2e.zip contains:
  1. llncs.cls, Springer class file;
  2. llncs.dem, sample input file, you can use it as a source for your own input;
  3. llncs.doc (actually a TeX file), the documentation of the class, with detailed instructions on how the macro package works;
  4. llncs.dvi, DVI resulting out of llncs.doc.
Please download llncs2e.zip.

Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes - Using LaTeX

If you are not able to use LaTeX2e you may use our old macro package for LaTeX. Please download llncs.zip.

Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes - Using Plain TeX

If you are not able to use LaTeX2e you may use our old macro package for Plain TeX. Please download plncs.zip.

Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes - Sample File

We also provide the LaTeX2e source file of the "Authors' Instructions," which may serve as a further sample input. typeinst.zip contains a separate LaTeX file for the text and EPS file for the figure. Please download typeinst.zip.

Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes - Using Microsoft Word

We do not encourage the use of Microsoft Word, particularly as the layout of the pages (the position of figures and paragraphs) can change between printouts. However, we do provide the relevant templates and sample files for PC (sv-lncs.dot) and Mac (sv-lncs) environments. Please read the explanatory sv-lncs.pdf carefully. Please download word.zip.

Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes - Using FrameMaker

Please follow our "Author Instructions" closely in order to make the volume look as uniform as possible. Oscar Nierstrasz prepared a FrameMaker template (llncsfm.zip) for the ESEC 1999 conference. [Please note that this template is neither checked nor supported by Springer.] Please download llncsfm.zip.

Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes - Using Other Packages

Please follow our "Author Instructions" closely in order to make the volume look as uniform as possible. If you have prepared a template for a different text -processing system and you would like to share it with others, please send it to us. [Please note that any such templates are neither checked nor supported by Springer.]

Figures

If possible, please produce your figures electronically - please download see techinen.pdf - and integrate them into your text file. For LaTeX and TeX users we recommend using the style files psfig.sty (available at ftp://ftp.dante.de/ tex-archive/graphics/psfig/psfig.sty) or epsf.tex (available at ftp://ftp.d ante.de/tex- archive/systems/knuth/local/lib/epsf.tex).
