SVG Open / Carto.net
Developers Conference

Zurich, Switzerland - July 15-17, 2002


Instructions for the final Paper

Presenters are asked to send the final paper version before June 1 to the email-address papers@svgopen.org. All paper submissions must be in English. The paper length should not exceed 10.000 words.

The best paper will be offered a publication in the "Computer Graphics Forum", the international journal of the Eurographics Association.

Papers should be written in XHTML 1.1 Transitional and sent to papers@svgopen.org. The paper should include a short abstract, keywords, the full author's name, organization/company, address, phone/fax, e-mail address, affiliations and optional an author vitae. The complete HTML paper with graphics and any additional files should be sent as a .tar.gz or .zip-archive.

Authors are asked to check their paper for XHTML conformance at http://validator.w3.org/. Because this is a W3C co-sponsored/organized conference the conformance is a requirement. For people using Microsoft Office as a HTML-Editor we recommend to clean up the code with HTML Tidy.

The paper must use the css-stylesheet provided by the conference organization in order to ensure a consistent look and feel for the conference proceedings CD-Rom and Webpage. Please copy the css-file "papers.css" to the parent (upper) directory of your paper-directory and link it relatively (<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../papers.css"/>). Please do not change the original css-file; if you need additional css-styles, create a separate css-file and link it before the official conference CSS-file, to ensure that the official css has priority.

Please do also pay attention to the following requirements:

For an example on how to use the style sheets please have a look at the Sample Paper.

Authors are encouraged to enclose SVG examples and working prototypes/examples. For serverside applications please also enclose sourcecode, if available. There is a possibility to add serverside applications at the conference-server. Available technologies include php, perl and java-servlets (jakarta-tomcat engine), as well as postgres and mysql databases. In case you want to use this offer please send us installation instructions. Other, more complicated setups (with specialized server-software) should link to a working product/prototype on another (demo)-server.

We thank for your contribution and your cooperation in providing us with clean XHTML 1.1 Transitional files. If you have any additional questions please send them to papers@svgopen.org.

Your SVG.Open team.
