Camera-ready version of your contribution is due no later than October, 06 2020.

Please take the reviewers' comments carefully into account when preparing it. No rebuttal letter is needed.

The page limit for the paper is 12 pages with the possibility of adding at most 2 extra pages for an extra fee.

1) Copyright form

All authors submitting papers must grant Springer specific permission to publish the work "Consent to publish".

    • Download the “Consent to publish” form

    • Fill the form with the title of your paper as well as the names of the authors at the top of the form and sign it

    • Save “Consent to publish” form in a PDF file and upload it in the submission system

2a) LaTex Manuscript

    • Use the LaTex template, available here

      - You can add packages to this template but do not remove any that are already included

    • If your manuscript is separated into several .tex files, combine them into a single, cohesive .tex file before the submission

      - Bibliography can be submitted separately as .bib or included in your main .tex file (do not use input, include or externaldocument)

      - Figures should be placed in the directory containing the .tex manuscript (not in subdirectories). Therefore, the includegraphics command should contain only the filename, es.:

      - We accept only EPS and TIFF (at least 600 dpi) files

      - Since figures are uploaded separately from your .tex file, remove EPS figures generated in the LaTeX file.
