Camera-ready instructions

ESA 2016 camera-ready instructions

You can find below instructions for preparing the camera-ready version of your paper. You have already received the comments by the reviewers in a previous email. Please take them carefully into account when preparing your camera-ready paper for the proceedings. The final paper is due on:

June 22, 2016 (AoE)

This is a firm deadline for the production of the proceedings. You should submit your paper using your EasyChair author account. All required files should be submitted in a one zip or tgz file.

Along with the camera-ready version of your paper, you should fill out, sign and include the scan of the LIPIcs author agreement. Please name the file p[article-no]-[last name of first author]-author-agreement.pdf 

Wherever [article-no] is mentioned in the guidelines, it should be regarded as the paper's submission number.

The papers should be prepared using LIPIcs LaTeX style that is available here: drops.dagstuhl.de/styles/lipics-v2016/lipics-v2016-authors.tgz. The page limit is 15 pages not including references. Detailed rules on how to prepare your paper are provided below.

  • Use pdflatex and an up-to-date LaTeX system.
  • Use further LaTeX packages only if required. Avoid usage of packages like enumitem, enumerate, cleverref. Keep it simple, i.e. use as few additional packages as possible.
  • Add custom made macros carefully and only those which are needed in the article (i.e., do not simply add your convolute of macros collected over the years).
  • Do not use a different main font. For example, the usage of the times-package is forbidden.
  • Provide full author names (especially with regard to the first name) in the \author macro and in the \Copyright macro.
  • Use the following conference related macros:
    \EventEditors{Piotr Sankowski and Christos Zaroliagis} 
    \EventNoEds{2} 
    \EventLongTitle{24th Annual European Symposium on Algorithms (ESA 2016)}

  • Fill out the \subjclass and \keywords macros. For the \subjclass, please refer to the ACM classification at www.acm.org/about/class/ccs98-html.
  • Take care of suitable linebreaks and pagebreaks. No overfull \hboxes should occur in the warnings log.
  • Provide suitable graphics of at least 300dpi (preferrably in pdf format).
  • Use the provided sectioning macros: \section, \subsection, \subsection*, \paragraph, \subparagraph*, ... “Self-made” sectioning commands (for example, \noindent{\bf My subparagraph.} will be removed and replaced by standard LIPIcs style sectioning commands.
  • Do not alter the spacing of the lipics-v2016.cls style file. Such modifications will be removed.
  • Do not use conditional structures to include/exclude content. Instead, please provide only the content that should be published – in one file – and nothing else.
  • Remove all comments, especially avoid commenting large text blocks and using \iffalse ... \fi constructions.
  • Keep the standard style (plainurl) for the bibliography as provided by the sample article.
  • Use BibTex and provide exactly one BibTex file for your article. The BibTex file should contain only entries that are referenced in the article. Please make sure that there are no errors and warnings with the referenced BibTex entries.
  • Preferably, the article's LaTeX-file and BibTex-file should be named, "p[article-no]-[last name of first author].tex" and "p[article-no]-[last name of first author].bib     
  • Use a spellchecker to get rid of typos.
