## Instructions for authors (final version)

If your submission has been accepted, there are two possible situations. If your paper has been accepted as a talk, then you should prepare a final version to be published in DMTCS. In this case please prepare the sources as indicated below with the class dmtcs.cls (and send them to us). If your submission has been accepted as a poster, then the final version will not be published in DMTCS, but it will still be distributed to participants and on the website of the conference. In this case you should prepare your paper with the class aofa.cls (as indicated below), and you only need to send us the PDF file of 2 to 12 pages (do not include the sources in this second case).

#### 1. Final version: Instructions for authors whose submission is accepted as a TALK

This section only deals with submissions accepted as a talk (see section 2. below if your submission was accepted as a poster). Please take the following steps to format your document according to the specifications of DMTCS. Please prepare your document using standard LaTeX and the dmtcs.cls class file. If you have any user macros, please include them in your submission.

2. The final version of your paper should be either an archive file (.tar or .tgz only) or a compressed file (.zip only) comprising:
• all files required to compile the file (since the proceedings are being published in DMTCS, you must continue to use the dmtcs.cls class file), and
• a PDF file of your submission compiled from these.
• Fill in your author and institution information.
• If your title is rather long, please give a short title substitution for the inside headers, e.g. \title[short title]{Long, wordy title} . The same goes for your name, if you have a preferred short form.
• You must provide 3 to 6 keywords in the form \keywords{keyword1, keyword2, keyword3} that describe the topic of your paper.
4. Please take special care with the author', title', keywords' commands and the abstract' environment. None of them should include unbreakable spaces (\ ' or ~'), non-ascii characters, \cite' or \ref' commands, or any user-defined commands. Write out any citations, rather than referencing the bibliography.
5. The final proceedings will be in PDF format, so please send your figures in pdf formats. The (standard) package graphicx is used by dmtcs.cls to include graphical data; please do not use epsf or similar. Use the includegraphics command to incorporate figures into your extended abstract. Your use of the command can be as simple as
\includegraphics[width=0.25\textwidth]{figure_filename}

Note that the file name is given without an extension (pdf or eps). Don't include the extension of the graphic file in the command! Please leave the choice of the desired format to the graphicx package. A typical inclusion of a figure as part of a LaTeX figure environment would look something like:
\begin{figure}[htbp]
\begin{center}
%% Don't use epsfile!
\includegraphics[width=0.25\textwidth]{figure_filename}
\label{fig:figure_label}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

6. Extended abstracts, when compiled using the dmtcs.cls class file, must not exceed 12 pages.
7. Submit your .tar, .tgz, or .zip file through the easychair system. Be sure you do not forget any of the files listed above, in particular the copyright form.

#### 2. Final version: Instructions for authors whose submission is accepted as a POSTER

This section only deals with submissions accepted as a poster (see section 1. above if your submission was accepted as a talk). Please take the following steps to format your document.

1. Prepare your document using standard LaTeX and the aofa.cls class file. The aofa.cls class file is very similar to the dmtcs.cls class file, so you can follow the directions given in sample.pdf or its source sample.tex, but please make sure to replace dmtcs with aofa in the .tex file.
2. Please do not forget the following points:
• Fill in your author and institution information.
• If your title is rather long, please give a short title substitution for the inside headers, e.g. \title[short title]{Long, wordy title} . The same goes for your name, if you have a preferred short form.
• You must provide 3 to 6 keywords in the form \keywords{keyword1, keyword2, keyword3} that describe the topic of your paper.
3. Your extended abstract, when compiled using the aofa.cls class file, must not exceed 12 pages.
4. Submit your PDF file through the easychair system.
