Camera-ready extended poster abstracts shall have typically 6 pages (no more than 8 and no less than 4), and must be written in the form of self-contained short research papers.
All authors are kindly asked to follow the LNCS author formatting guidelines from Springer for the preparation of their manuscripts. The Author Guidelines document summarizes how a proceedings manuscript should be structured, how elements (headings, figures, references) should be formatted using predefined styles, etc. It also gives some insight on how a manuscript will be typeset at Springer.
Users of MS Word
Production of the camera-ready document will be a much smoother process if authors make use of the available MS Word template, which incorporates all the recommended formatting guidelines:
