Submitting your accepted paper 

Authors are responsible for submitting latex-bug-free documents that conform to the stylistic requirements of Springer.

Begin by downloading the file DD22-proceedings.tar.gz or in the file This tar.gz or zip archive contains five files:

  • svmult.cls -- the basic Springer style file
  • natbib.sty, plainnat.bst -- bibliography style files (included in many standard TeX distributions)
  • sample_author.tex -- the template file for your contribution
  • authinst.pdf -- documentation about Springer publishing format.

It is important for submissions to have consistent style, and to avoid problems with conflicting labels. To address these issues, please observe the following guidelines in preparing your manuscript:

  • Filename Rename the file sample_author.tex as  <author>_<program element>.tex where <author> is the surname of the corresponding author (supplemented by first initials where necessary, e.g. "wang_k" or "wang_y"), and <program element> is one of "plenary", "mini_<#>", "contrib", <#> being the number of the Minisymposium. Please insert your contribution in this file.
  • Bibliography  Please prepare your bibliography in standard Bibtex ( .bib) format. To do this, create a file <author>_<program element>.bib and insert your references in Bibtex format. Authors are encouraged to retrieve bibtex references from MathSciNet (, should they already be available in that database. This will result in uniformity throughout the book and also ensure that names of journals are abbreviated correctly and consistently.
  • Labels  If you use latex labels to refer to equations, sections, tables, figures, etc, please use label names starting with <author>_<program element>. This will ensure that your document does not conflict with other documents in the proceedings volume.
  • Figures All figures will appear in gray scale to allow for reasonable printing costs, although color figures can be provided and will appear in color in electronic versions. Please name the files of your figures as <author>_<program element>_figure<#>.extension where extension is png, pdf, jpg, etc.
  • Please do not edit svmult.cls, plainnat.bst, natbib.sty. Do not define your own macros, or redefine those provided in these style files.
  • Please make sure that the archive contains additionally a pdf of your article with the name <submission number>_<author>_<program element>.pdf
  • Please make sure that the zip file does not contain  any directories or sub-directories. This is simplifying the production process.


Upload Instructions

Upload the zip-archive at When uploading, please give name, affiliation, and email address of the corresponding author (first entry) and of the co-authors (additional entries). Springer will directly contact the corresponding authors for proof reading during the production process.



Please be so kind to upload the archive at your earliest convenience, but not later than February 13, 2015.



Remark on the production process

In order to meet the growing demand of ebooks, Springer nowadays aims at producing all manuscripts (including manuscripts submitted in TEX) in full text XML, regardless of the format in which the manuscripts were originally submitted. In the case of manuscripts submitted in TEX, they will be first converted to full text XML and from there the proof PDF will be produced automatically.

The LaTeX style file is however not intended for the preparation of the final page layout, which will be created by Springer according to their layout specifications. This means that the final PDF of the printed book will not necessarily be identical with the reference PDF provided by the authors. However, please be assured that the content of the papers will not be touched at all and will remain as provided by the authors.



Please be advised that submitting an article to appear in the DD22 Proceedings volume, you are hereby agreeing to transfer copyright of your article to the publisher (Springer) as is normally required by Springer for these types of publications.




DD22 Conference Proceedings


As in prior conferences in the series, all participants who have registered to the conference are encouraged to submit a paper. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag within the LNCSE-series. All paid registrants will be sent a complimentary copy of this book upon publication, which will be mailed to the physical address you provided on registration.

All papers must be prepared and submitted according to the detailed instructions provided below. The following page restrictions apply:


  • Invited plenary presentations: 12 pages
  • Minisymposia, contributed presentations, and posters: 8 pages


The deadline for submission for peer-review is


  • Friday, January 31, 2014


All papers will be refereed. Presentation at the conference does not guarantee publication. Submitted papers need not conform identically to what was presented at the conference; titles and authoring may change.

Papers may be related to other publications by the author(s), but they should include original results. Due to page restrictions, it is natural that some authors will attempt to publish a more complete version of their work in archival journals and reserve a special angle for their proceedings paper. The DD22 proceedings should meet traditional standards for originality and quality, within the limitations of length.
