The format for manuscripts submitted to GECCO 2003 is that
used for Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science
in pdf and here
Manuscripts should be no more than 12 pages long in this format
Preparing your manuscript
will get the best results and your files will be easiest to
handle if you use LaTeX2e for the preparation of your camera-ready
manuscript together with the corresponding Springer class
Only if you use LaTeX2e and llncs.cls will we be able to add
hyperlinks to your manuscript in the online version. The LaTeX2e
macro package for LNCS contains further files: llncs.dem
is a sample input file which you may take as a source for
your own input. llncs.doc
(a TEX file) is the documentation of the class, here you can
find detailed instructions showing how the macro package works.
is the resulting DVI file of llncs.doc to enable you to print
out the documentation directly. We also provide the LaTeX2e
source file of the "Authors' Instructions", which
may serve as a further sample input. You can download it as
archive or you can download the TEX
file for the text and the EPS
file for the figure separately.
you are not able to use LaTeX2e you may use our old macro
packages for LaTeX
or for TeX.
do not encourage the use of MS Word, particularly as the layout
of the pages (the position of figures and paragraphs) can
change from printout to printout. Having said this, we do
provide the template sv-lncs.dot
(for use with PC systems) or sv-lncs
(for use with Macintosh systems) to help MS Word users to
prepare their camera-ready manuscripts and to enable us to
use their source files for the online version of the LNCS.
Please read the documentation of the template
carefully, we also provide typeinst.doc,
our "Authors' Instructions", as an example input.
You can download all four files as a ZIP
archive. With some Web browsers the templates may
be destroyed during transfer. Thus it is better to download
the ZIP archive.
would like to stress that the style files should not be manipulated
and that the guidelines regarding font sizes and format should
be adhered to. This is to ensure that the end product is as
homogeneous as possible.
you are unable to use LaTeX or MS Word, you may use any other
text processing system. In this case, please follow our "Authors'
Instructions" closely in order to make the volume
look as uniform as possible. Some editors and authors have
prepared templates for different text processing systems.
These templates are neither checked nor supported by
Springer. You can find them on our authors'
template exchange Web site.
