Author Guidelines

Camera-Ready Papers. The ER2003 proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Springer-Verlag publishes a full-text electronic version of LNCS in parallel with the printed version, thus the electronic source of accepted papers is required (Springer-Verlag strongly prefers the LaTeX 2e format, but Word format is acceptable). See the Springer site ( for author instructions. Please follow the author instructions carefully.

Be sure to respond to referee comments in revising your camera-ready papers.

Research papers are limited to 14 pages. (Workshop papers are limited to 12 pages, and will be published in a separate proceedings -- contact your workshop chair for instructions.) Extra pages are available for $150/page, but the number of extra pages available is limited. If you wish to reserve 1 or 2 extra pages, send an e-mail to the volume editors.

Industry abstracts are limited to 2 pages and may be sent in electronic form only (no hard copy required) if the paper is easy for the editors to print. Word, WordPerfect, LaTeX should all be fine.
