Camera Ready Version

Camera ready papers are due July, 4th for accepted papers and June, 28th for conditionally accepted papers.

To prepare the camera ready version of your paper, please follow the general author guidelines below. If you use LaTeX to prepare your paper, please use the same template as for your submission. Make sure to appropriately replace the provided placeholders in the template with the list of authors and institutes, and also provide an author list and running title for the page headers (abbreviated as necessary). Also make sure to comment out the \DAGMreviewversion command to obtain a non-review version. For more information, also regarding other document preparation systems including Microsoft Word, please refer to Springer's LNCS author instructions.

Papers prepared in LaTeX need to be accompanied by all source files necessary to compile the paper (.tex and .bib files, figures, as well as any additional style files that you may have used). Please also include a PDF of the final version as a reference. Please submit all files in a single ZIP or TAR.GZ file. If you use Microsoft Word for preparing your paper, please submit the paper as DOC/DOCX or RTF file along with a PDF for reference. Please also upload these files as part of a single ZIP or TAR.GZ file.

Every paper requires a copyright form to be submitted by the authors. Please fill in the copyright form and send the signed form to or fax it to +49 681 9325 2099

Also note that submitting a camera ready version implies that one of the authors will register for GCPR 2013 before July 4th and attend the conference to present the paper. All questions related to the camera ready version should be directed to the GCPR 2013 chairs.


Instructions and Policies

The GCPR 2013 conference proceedings will be published in the Springer LNCS series. The proceedings will include all papers accepted for oral presentation or for poster presentation under the condition that at least one of the authors completes a registration to the conference. Authors should take into account the following rules:

  • All papers have to be written in English, have to conform with the Springer LNCS format, and have to be submitted as a single PDF file.
  • The paper length is limited to 10 pages.
  • GCPR reviewing is double blind: authors do not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers do not know the names of the authors. Therefore please avoid any information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments and in the supplemental material. See section 2 of the example paper for detailed information.

See also the example paper gcpr2013submission.pdf for more information. Papers that do not conform with the above guidelines will be rejected without review.

Author Kit

The author kit provides a LaTeX2e template for submissions, and an example paper to demonstrate the format. Please refer to this example for detailed formatting instructions. If you intend to use something other than LaTeX to prepare your paper (e.g. MS Word), you may refer to this Springer site.

Submission System

Paper submission is done using Microsoft CMT. The paper submission site is now open.

Papers for the Young Researcher's Forum are also submitted via the GCPR CMT system, see the Young Researcher's Forum page for more details.
