Preparing your proceedings volume

Copyright form

Please use the copyright form sent by the publishing editor in the acceptance e-mail or indicated in the contract. Find links to our most frequently used copyright forms LNCS, CCIS, LNBIP, IFIP-AICT in the download box above. For LNICST copyright form please contact the EAI/ICST society.

LaTeX files for frontmatter 

We recommend that you prepare the front matter pages in LaTeX2e together with the class file llncs.cls. To avoid any retyping, the table of contents and the author index could be created using the title blocks of the articles (starting with \title and ending with \maketitle) and increasing the page counter using a \setcounter{page}{xy} command.
Please download - this ZIP archive contains a commented sample that can serve as a template as well as the resulting output.

Using MakeIndex to generate Author Index

In llncsde2.tex, the MakeIndex program (makeindx.exe or makeindex) is used together with the style file sprmindx.sty in order to generate the author index automatically. The makeindx executable is part of any TeX system.

sprmindx.sty and the sample file with embedded instructions can be found in

Conference Management Tool - OCS

The Online Conference Service (OCS)  is a personalized conference management system. It helps Program Committee chairs, Program Committee members, reviewers, and authors cooperate efficiently during their collaborative preparation of conference proceedings.
OCS is customizable and flexibly reconfigurable online at any time for each role, for each conference, and for each user. The service has been successfully used for about 200 computer science conferences.
