LNCS - More than Just Proceedings!
The breadth of research within LNCS makes it a core item for any academic library in computer science and a relevant resource of information for many researchers in neighboring academic disciplines as well as in corporate R&D environments.
LNCS is characterized not only by its comprehensive coverage of the field but also by its variety of products over and above the well-established conference proceedings.
Watch out for these product lines with colorful covers:
Challenges volumes can be published in time for distribution at a conference or as a post-event publication.
Manuscripts to be published as Tutorials must clearly serve educational purposes.
This subline is easily recognizable by its blue and green cover.
The subline is open for monographs and for edited volumes, which must be homogeneous in style of presentation and terminology and must provide complete and complementary coverage of all relevant aspects of the topic.
State-of-the-Art Surveys have a red and blue cover.
Historical and even personal aspects may show up.
They present internationally relevant technical contributions with a reasonable topical focus.
Designed with a fresh orange and blue cover.
