Submission Instructions for Accepted Papers

If your paper has been accepted for the ASSURE 2017 Program, please follow the instructions below, when preparing your final, camera-ready paper for the proceedings.

1. Deadline

The final paper and the signed copyright form are due on June 12, 2017. This is a firm deadline for the production of the proceedings.

2. Copyright Release

  • Authors must fill and sign the Springer "Consent to Publish" copyright release form using the following information:
    • Title of the Book or Conference Name: Computer Safety, Reliability, and Security - SAFECOMP 2017 Workshops - ASSURE, DECSoS, SASSUR, TELERISE, and TIPS
    • Volume Editor(s): Stefano Tonetta, Erwin Schoitsch, Friedemann Bitsch
  • One author may sign on behalf of all authors.
  • Springer does not accept digital signatures, unfortunately. Please physically sign the form, scan, and email it in PDF or any acceptable image format, to the SAFECOMP 2017 Publication Chair by the deadline above.
  • Alternatively, upload the signed, and completed form via EasyChair using your author account.

3. Corresponding Authors

Please nominate a corresponding author, whose name and email address must be included in the email containing the copyright release form. This author will be responsible for checking the pre-print proof of your paper prepared by Springer.

4. Pre-print Checking

The publisher has recently introduced an extra control loop: once data processing is finished, they will contact all corresponding authors and ask them to check their papers. We expect this to happen shortly before the printing of the proceedings. At that time your quick interaction with Springer-Verlag will be greatly appreciated.

5. Formatting and Page Limits

Please do not change the spacing and dimensions associated with the paper template files. Please ensure that your paper meets the page limits for your paper type. Page limits are strict.

  • Regular research/practice papers: 12 pages including figures, references, and appendices.
  • Tools papers: 10 pages, including figures, references, and appendices.
  • Position papers: 4 - 6 pages including figures, references, and any appendices.

6. Final Paper Submission

Submit your camera ready paper using your EasyChair author account, for inclusion into the Workshop Proceedings. After you have logged in, select the Proceedings Author role to be directed to the submission page.

Springer reserves the right to reformat your paper to meet their print and digital publication requirements. Consequently, you will need to submit all the source files associated with your paper. Follow the instructions after the login for uploading two files:

  1. either a zipped file containing all your LaTeX sources or a Word file in the RTF format, and
  2. a PDF version of your camera-ready paper.

Please follow the LNCS paper formatting guidelines when preparing the final version.
