Instructions for the final Paper
Presenters are asked to send the final paper version before June 1 to the email-address firstname.lastname@example.org. All paper submissions must be in English. The paper length should not exceed 10.000 words.
Papers should be written in XHTML 1.1 Transitional and sent to email@example.com. 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:
- To avoid naming conflicts, all of your files should reside in a separate directory called "abstractnumber_authorname_shorttitle" (f.e. "46_neumann_topographicmaps")
- All links to files of your paper should be relative
- Do not use frames
- Paragraphs should be enclosed with "<p></p>"
- Address and contact information should be enclosed with "<p class="adr"></p>"
- Keywords should be enclosed with "<p class="keyw"></p>"
- The Abstract should be enclosed with "<p class="abstr"></p>"
- The Abstract Header should be enclosed with "<p class="abstrHeader"></p>"
- Figures and Images should be enclosed with "<p class="figure"></p>"
- Figure and Table captions should be enclosed with "<p class="figureCaption"></p>"
- Please use only official image formats, such as PNG, JPEG JFIF and SVG; Screenshots and graphics with sharp contours are preferably stored in PNG.
- SVG graphics should be included using the html-<object/>-tag, rather then using <embed/> (see instructions at W3C); SVG examples that need to have access from the browser-scripting engine to the svg-plugin may use the <embed/>-tag.
- Source Code should be enclosed with "<pre></pre>"
- Technical terms should be enclosed with "<tt></tt>"
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
