Instructions for Authors
We have a special page
with instructions how to prepare
OASIcs selected papers.
Regular papers and abstracts of presentations submitted to MEMICS 2010
must be typeset in LaTeX in the LNCS Springer style. Papers in other
formats and/or exceeding the maximum length will not be accepted for
publication. The maximum regular paper length is 8 pages, including the
bibliography. Abstracts of presentations obey the same rules as regular
papers, only their length is limited to 1 page (and they must include a
note on where the original work was presented or accepted---otherwise the
presentation will automatically be rejected). By submitting a paper or
presentation abstract, the authors implicitly agree with the publication
of the paper/presentation abstract in the MEMICS 2010 proceedings.
The prescribed limit of 8 pages can be extended by one page,
in cases where additional explanation has been requested by the

strongly recommend using it as a template. To create a PDF file from the
LaTeX source form of the paper, use either
- pdflatex (preferred) or
- latex, dvips and ps2pdf or
- latex and dvipdfm.
In the final camera ready version, turn page numbering and page
headers off; they will be added by the editors.
We strongly recommend restricting to "line art" figures, e.g., graphs
and schemes. Because of the printing technique, complex bitmaps like
photos may lead to unpredictable results. Avoid colours, use at most
several grades of grey (not too many).
For both initial and camera ready submissions, authors are required to
- A PDF file of the paper or one page abstract of the presentation
(with page numbering and headers switched off for
camera ready submission).
- A gziped tarball (tgz) with the
complete sources that are necessary to build the PDF, i.e., LaTeX
source codes, bibliographies, figures, etc. Please make sure that the
source files you send are sufficient to build the resulting PDF. If you
use a package that can be expected non-standard to the usual TeXlive
distribution, please include it into the sources. (Please note that the
sources are required even for the initial submission in order to allow
the editors to prepare the final typesetting process.)
